Building technology platforms from a set of off-the-shelf components, like Lego bricks, is being widely adopted for new media solutions including OTT services and content supply chains.

Using these individual services, often cloud based, can help create more powerful solutions more quickly – embracing the latest AI and ML capabilities, and making it easier to swap out individual components like transcoders in future. This approach also paves the way for platforms that make dynamic choices of individual cloud-based services based on demand and cost on a pay-as-you-go basis.

But does the reality live up to the promise? Explore how microservices are being adopted by broadcast and media companies, and find out:
•How microservices can transform development of media content solutions
•When to adopt a microservices-based approach
•Why integration and interoperability of media microservices isn’t always straightforward
•Can microservices be a cost effective approach to building and operating media platforms

More than a buzzword, microservices have become key to media solutions of today. However, like most hot trends, misunderstanding and assumptions tend to run rampant. Is this the panacea we have been seeking for decades? Will we finally be able to achieve custom solutions based on Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) components? Join us as we explore exactly what microservices are, what implications they hold for the media industry, and how SMPTE and others are solving the challenges of interoperability in this realm.

IABM Free Webinar - Microservices - The Key To Agility

One of the biggest trends recently in our industry is the move toward microservices. IABM’s CTO Stan Moote will get the facts from Medianswer’s Chris Lennon on working with multivendor microservices.

The Open Services Alliance and SMPTE have been focusing on how to enable truly interoperable microservices and APIs among media systems. A who’s who of media companies, vendors and platform providers are working together to define standards, specifications, best practices, and more to help systems interoperate and realize the true value of microservices in our industry.
