Take a short survey on how CDNs can improve your OTT services
BroadcastPro Middle East and Medianova have partnered to conduct a short survey to better understand the challenges that OTT entities and streaming platforms face with regards to CDNs (Content Delivery Networks). The results of this survey will be discussed in a webinar in late September. By participating in this survey, you also stand a chance to win an Apple TV, courtesy of Medianova.
This survey will take you less than 5 minutes to answer but will help us better understand the needs of the OTT industry.
