Key technologies, strategies
and business models – how to take
your streaming service to the next level

20 – 21 Sept 2021, Online


About the

2nd Annual MENA OTT Conference

With the easing of lockdowns and international travel resuming in most parts of the world – it is apparent that OTT and streaming services is now becoming the firm favourite in home mainstream entertainment.

Key players such as Netflix, Starzplay and Amazon Prime are now becoming established leaders in the region, but with several broadcasters and boutique media houses picking up the pace with their own platforms, the pressure for market share has never been more intense.

The 2nd annual MENA OTT Conference will pick up from our inaugural event last year and bring together industry experts and end users over a period of two days to discuss several topics within streaming media technology.

With more offerings now on the table, the broadcast ecosystem includes a host of vendors and service providers promising lower latency, 4K quality, and broadcasting via the cloud, satellite and IP with the promise of faster bandwidth and seamless viewing than ever before.
