The Streaming Media East Conference was this week in a rainy New York City. It was VOPED’s third time to SME, and we spent part of our time wondering how things have changed since the first one we attended. Luckily we were positioned alongside the SME Demo Theatre so that in between some very interesting conversations, we could hear what’s new with companies like Dolby and Adobe.
Kevin Towes with Adobe enticed us with a teaser about a big announcement coming out “very, very soon” on their Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution, Access. As much as the technology of online video has matured, it is clear that content owners and consumers have high expectations, and companies are stepping up to the plate to deliver higher and higher quality end-user experiences.
So, for those who want to know: was the show a success for VOPED? Oh yeah! There were some high level representatives looking for the VOPED feature set. It didn’t hurt that our flexibility with how we can deploy the VOPED platform is something that companies are finding very appealing.
By the Numbers: SME announced a 6% increase in attendance over last year.
