THE SVTA SEGMENTS CONFERENCE IS AN extension of our mission

About the Streaming Video Technology Alliance

Comprised of members from across the video ecosystem, the Streaming Video Technology Alliance is a global technical association that works to solve critical streaming video challenges in an effort to improve end-user experience and adoption. The organization focuses on three main activities: first is to educate the industry on challenges, technologies, and trends through informative, publicly-available resources such as whitepapers, articles, and e-books; second is to foster collaboration among different video ecosystem players through working groups, quarterly meetings, and conferences; third is to define solutions for streaming video challenges by producing specifications, best practices, and other technical documentation.

No! The SEGMENTS conference is open to the general public. We’re sure that a lot of SVTA member company employees will be in attendance so it’s a great opportunity to speak with people who are active in the organization to find out if you should join!

No! Anyone can submit a proposal to be on our stage. Our committee will review submissions anonymously to determine the best fit.

Absolutely. Simply fill out the form to tell us about your topic and preferred track. Note: SEGMENTS is not a pay-to-speak event. We have a designated committee who will review speaking submissions to pull together the best possible program for attendees.

The short answer is, “no.” Registration and attendance of SEGMENTS does not entitle you to attend the SVTA Q2 meeting held at the same Hilton hotel, May 17th and 18th. But, the SVTA does afford a certain number of “guests” at each meeting. If you are serious about becoming a member and would like to attend the meeting, please let us know as soon as you register so that we can discuss a guest pass.

The Alliance is a non-profit, non-equity, 501 (c)(6) organization incorporated in the state of Delaware. The SVTA is governed by the Board of Directors and managed by an experienced team. The SEGMENTS conference is organized and run by the SVTA.
