BroadcastPro ME will host the MENA OTT and Anti-Piracy conference this week from November 3 to 5 as part of its efforts to discuss how the media and entertainment industry is addressing the rising demand for streaming services in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and in parallel, countering piracy.
The conference, which will be streamed live, will bring together a new lineup of industry stalwarts from amongst regional end-users and international solution providers, with the aim of discussing evolving patterns in online consumer behaviour and content consumption as well as strategies to take streamers to the next level.

We are also proud to announce that this conference has attracted a large number of regional and international registrations.
With the onset of Covid-19, the demand for streaming services spiked, moving streamers permanently into the mainstream entertainment space. This led to a rise in subscriptions, which placed considerable pressure on existing infrastructure as well as streaming services to cope with the rising traffic as well as the continuous demand for new content from their viewers. Were all stakeholders prepared for the dramatic rise in OTT uptake during this season? Did they have sufficient content and the infrastructure to cope with the rise in subscriptions? What infrastructural measures did they put in place to ensure their service measured up to the increasing demand and what strategies and business models did they adopt to retain their subscribers?
The MENA OTT and Anti-Piracy Virtual Week will aim to discuss these questions and more through presentations, research reports as well as panel discussions. The OTT-tech segments on November 3 and 4 will focus on how to cope with subscriber growth and traffic with a good and efficient technical infrastructure all the way to distribution and consumption by end users. Senior executives will look at how companies can distinguish themselves in a world saturated with various streaming services offering the same content.
The anti-piracy segment on November 5 will see MUSO present a special report on Anti-Piracy, while StarzPlay, who has emerged as one of the biggest winners during the Covid-19 pandemic, will share their numbers and strategies. A special panel discussion will also take us through some tactical and technical strategies that global and regional players are undertaking to address piracy.
