MUMBAI: When Chad Hurley. Steve Chen and Jawed Karim created YouTube in 2005, little did they know their brainchild would spawn the phenomenon of user-generated video content. Today, more than 300 hours of video are uploaded by users on Youtube every minute resulting in billions of views per year. Ditto with social media outlets such as Twitter, Facebook, Twitter and hundreds of new entrants such as TikTok, Firework, Roposo etc.

What is the technical architecture that goes into making a successful UGC video service? What is their business model? How have they fared during the pandemic and what kind of challenges are they continuing to face?  What are the practices business executives and tech professionals have put in place to optimise and provide a best in class service? 

These and many other such questions will be answered by a stellar panel of executives who will be coming together for a virtual round table “The rise and rise of user-generated content and the tech that enabled the rise” organised by indiantelevision.com in partnership with CDN and security provider Akamai Technologies.

The virtual roundtable which is taking place on zoom and streamlined lined on indiantelevision.com social outlets will be moderated by Indiantelevision.com founder, CEO and editor in chief Anil Wanvari.
