About SEGMENTS:2023

This one day event featured four sponsors (Broadpeak, Comcast, Qwilt, and Vecima), 32 speakers, and over 60 attendees. Presentations were 10-15 minutes long and divided into the “segments” of the workflow: Ingest, Content, Manipulation, Delivery, Playback, Analysis/Monitoring, Operations, and an overall Workflow category. Speakers represented a cross-section of the streaming video tech stack and included network operators, service providers (CDNs), technology vendors, and content owners.

SEGMENTS was great. I loved all the focused presentations. It was very refreshing, addressing topics that you don’t often hear at other conferences.

SEGMENTS was fantastic. The speakers had lots of interesting things to say and the entire day was scheduled very well (and kept on time).

Chris Lemmons

(Principal Engineer, Product Development)

SEGMENTS was great. It did a great job of addressing the operational aspects of the industry, in between deep technical conferences like Demuxed and high-level business conferences like Streaming Media, with a great amount of high-quality speakers to go with that.

Great presentations. Fantastic people. The word “rocket scientist” comes to mind when thinking about the presentations. And the knowledge that was shared was incredible.
