Industrial Talk: What challenges we are facing during post-Netflix era

Dr. Shuen-Huei Guan | Technical Director of KKStream

Abstract: Video streaming (or more broadly OTT, over-the-top content) becomes the hot topic after giant players, including YouTube, Apple, Twitch, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and even Facebook. Netflix, among the list, leads the business, paradigm shift (cord cutting), content production and even streaming technology. In this casual talk, I'd like to try bring out some technical or operational issues and todos from streaming service provider's viewpoint. Let's see what we can discover from them to cook out new research topics or even startup ideas with practical needs.

drakeBio: Before joining the big trend of video streaming in KKBOX (and then KKStream), Drake has been serving as R&D manager and technology pioneer in Digimax, an animation studio, for 9 years. He was fortunate to participate some animation projects with partners like National Palace Museum (故宮博物院), NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), U-Theatre (優人神鼓) and even Pixar's RenderMan team. He started as a Computer Graphics researcher (SIGGRAPH maniac), stereoscopic vision lover, casual movie fan and then video streaming pioneer in Taiwan. He believes people first than technology even though his background is in STEM.
