Epic Labs to participate on a panel session at Akamai Edge

“Real-world Solutions to Deliver Interactive Live Workflows with OTT Platforms” is the name of the panel to be celebrated on Friday 13th October at 9:50 am.

Epic Labs, proud member of the DASH IF, will show how to deliver interactive workflows on OTT platforms in order to explore new revenue models and experiences. Attendees will learn how to implement different technologies like WebRTC, cloud architectures and other techniques, solving common challenges and enabling a true end-to-end solution with low-latency video and full interactivity capabilities at a massive scale.

The panel will be held by Alfonso Peletier, Epic Labs Founder & CEO; Jesús Oliva, Epic Labs Founder & Media Engineering Lead; and Ilker Ürgenc, Media Architect at Akamai.

Alfonso Peletier, Epic Labs Founder & CEO: “We are proud to participate in the Akamai Edge conference, we will be sharing some of the interesting opportunities we are seeing for Media Companies and Broadcasters to generate engaging fresh experiences for users and audiences that want to interact with celebrities, journalists and content producers. We are providing real-time video technologies seamlessly integrated with Akamai technologies for high quality massive broadcast. This will be the main topic of the panel where we will be showcasing a demo as well.”

Akamai Edge 2017 will take place at Aria Resort in Las Vegas from 11 to 13 October. This is the tenth edition which has as its theme “Connect to tomorrow”. For nearly a week, different partners, customers and Akamai members will discuss different market trends and the most challenging scenarios in the different markets in which the company has a presence.

WebRTC real-time video App case study. Developing of a low-latency

Developing of a low-latency, high-scalability and real-time video App for social media

The Customer: A company that is dedicated to developing different Apps for mobile devices. Since 2006 they have been pioneers in developing different social networking platforms and games for Middle East and Africa.


The Background: The product is a social media network based on video, a platform for mobile devices that allows to make a personalized streaming broadcast reaching a large audience of followers and fans. Effectively, it allows to create your own television channel with massive broadcast over the Internet. Each user can utilize the App to showcase their talents or different life moments, interacting and speaking in groups with live, low-latency video and audio.
This App is consumed also by celebrities to share things they are interested in, provide news and updates and occasionally chat and interact with their fans.


The Challenge: The customer wanted to create an interactive broadcast solution as the cornerstone for a social media network. The experience would provide a great level of interactivity via video and chat, combined with the ability to reach several thousands of users.
The key point was that the application had to work with a latency of less than half a second to facilitate communication between the different participants regardless of where they were located in the world.


The Solution: Epic Labs proposed a solution based on WebRTC technology, a protocol that allows a connection of video-audio-data between browsers and native apps with a latency less than one second. Epic Labs worked on getting the benefits of WebRTC in terms of low latency combined with the use of broadcast-oriented protocols (i.e. DASH and HLS) allowing for cost-effective, high-quality and massive content delivery.

The solution allows for video composition, a layout that includes the main signal and windows with the other users that participate in each App channel, to be broadcasted through a CDN.


The Results: The project was executed following Epic Agile Methodology for Media. At the end, the customer got exactly the product they needed in the timing they wanted, with a perfect balance between image quality and low latency. Epic Labs also provided the necessary SDKs to integrate the solution in Android and iOS. Now, the App is a complete success in its target region.

Workshop sobre Inteligencia Artificial para Broadcast

Antonio Tablero, Head of Broadcast Engineering & Technology, FNG Europe and Africa y Epic Labs ofrecen un workshop sobre Inteligencia Artificial para Broadcast en BIT Experience.

Se celebra el miércoles 4 de octubre a las 17:00 en la sala S15+S16 del Auditorio Sur de IFEMA  bajo el nombre: Inteligencia artificial real para broadcast. Automatización de metadatos, auto-tagging y moderación de contenidos con Machine Learning.

El impacto de la Inteligencia Artificial en nuestra sociedad se prevé que sea tan importante como el descubrimiento de la electricidad, una ola que sin duda cubrirá el sector de la producción y difusión de contenidos en los próximos años. A pesar de este escenario tan contundente, poca información real hay sobre la aplicación y los beneficios que aporta esta tecnología a la industria Broadcast y Media, y sobre todo, cómo puede utilizarse hoy en día, sin necesidad de esperar al futuro.

En cuanto al contenido, se expondrá un caso de uso actual sobre moderación automática de contenidos y auto-tagging. Por otra parte, se explicarán cuáles son las bases para abordar un proyecto de Inteligencia Artificial aplicado a entornos de canales de televisión ya sean tradicionales o Web TV, plataformas de contenidos, así como el amplio ecosistema de empresas de servicios de producción y difusión.

Alfonso Peletier, Founder & CEO de Epic Labs: “Estamos ayudando a empresas del sector Media en sus procesos de innovación y transformación digital; tecnologías de Deep Learning e Inteligencia Artificial nos habilitan nuevos e interesantes casos de uso para Media y Broadcast. Es un orgullo poder aportar las investigaciones y desarrollo del Equipo de Epic Labs junto a un profesional tan reputado como Antonio Tablero en el marco de BIT Experience”.


La sesión incluye una demostración y una ronda de Q&A con expertos de Epic Labs que resolverán las dudas de los asistentes.



Epic Labs will be present at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam

Epic Labs will be present at IBC 2017 responding to the software engineering, innovation and digital transformation challenges in Broadcast and Media.

The great talent of Epic Labs Engineering Team is being recognized by many Broadcast and Media companies from the USA, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland or Spain.

The Media industry is facing an unprecedent transition as dedicated hardware is gradually being abandoned in favor to cloud and software-based architectures. There is also an evolution on the business models and content delivery experiences. In this continuous changing scenario is mandatory to partner with knowledge-centric companies to drive innovation processes.

Epic Labs services are comprised by a premium Engineering Team coming from companies like Akamai, Dell EMC, NEC, or Pivotal. This knowledge and capacity, combined with innovative agile methodologies and culture are helping Media companies optimize the current operations, create new digital products, cloud, virtualization and IP-based broadcast solutions, innovative experiences and enhanced monetization models.

Diego García, Epic Sales: “Every day we see how the IT areas of traditional broadcast are ganining relevance and visibility. If we look further the presence of IT-folks inside the broadcast companies technical departments will be massive. We are finding great opportunities to partner with Media and Broadcasting companies to successfully merge these two worlds”.
Epic Labs has recently joined the DASH Industry Forum and will deploy a Team of people at IBC, where the company wants to leverage it´s own value proposition, and also increase customers and partners.

Alfonso Peletier, Epic Labs Founder & CEO: ”We are excited to attend this new IBC where we look to meet customers and partners to share market insights, trends and experiences. Also, an exceptional chance to seek for additional opportunities to further partner and share insight on Epic Labs areas of research for Media on real-time video, machine learning or blockchain”.
