TV Everywhere Authentication: Challenges & Opportunities

Authentication for TV Everywhere is a complex challenge to solve if consumers are to enjoy seamless, user-friendly experiences that enable high-quality, premium content to be viewed across devices. It's a challenge that Akamai is addressing through our Sola Vision Identity Services, which our partner, Brightcove, has integrated into its Video Cloud online video platform.
Recently, Corey Halverson, Akamai's senior director of media products, joined Jeff Whatcott, Brightcove's CMO, and Phil Costa, director of product management, to discuss the TV Everywhere opportunity and how the two companies are working together to help make it easier for pay TV operators and content owners to deploy and manage such services. The conversation is captured in the video below.
