The Inaugural Australian OTT Summit will examine the rise of Over The Top (OTT) technologies and services in the Australian telecommunications industry in the TV, Messaging and Voice domains and will explore the challenges, opportunities and case studies of their disruption.
With emerging competition in the video on demand industry intensifying, Australia is seeing a shift from cable and pay TV models to cheaper, faster and advertising-free models of media streaming, challenging the status quo and reforming the broadcasting industry.
Likewise in the B2C and B2B messaging sectors there has been a substantial move from SMS messaging to instant messaging applications, voice activated messaging and a shift towards secure, integrated and interactive platforms changing the way we communicate now and into the future.
The Australian OTT Summit will have a theme and focus on 'Driving innovation in OTT service delivery'. It will draw on policy, legislation, socio-economic data and practical case studies to assess the current, emerging and future outlook for OTT services in Australia.
The Summit will hear from senior executives from OTT providers, content producers and telecommunications leaders along with industry experts, industry associations, academics and consultants. It will provide a unique opportunity to connect the senior leadership team from the speaker panel with technology vendors, professional services, along with wider telecommunications industry.
