How to handle linear HbbTV broadcast with Python for 10 TV stations
a talk by Lukáš Kokoška
DVB broadcast is linear, HTTP is not. HbbTV is a standard binding world of linear broadcast and stateless HTTP together.
There are many challenges to correctly handle web content in TVs, especially with a completely different approach from broadcasters.
I will show you, how to serve advertisements and measure traffic to hundreds of thousands always connected devices on the single server. With just 40% of devices capable of WebSocket, you have to find ways to get performance elsewhere. Ad targeting and caping in shared memory for linear subscribers on 10+ years old devices with Python and uWSGI.
This talk is aimed at advanced Pythonistas. (While it might be interesting for beginners we recommend them to choose another talk.)
I've started my Python career with Python version 2.3 making SMS messaging and content management. As years passed I've worked on many projects in Seznam.cz and other companies.
My current title is Head of research and development and I'm working on topics like payment gateways, content repository, hi-perf messaging and HbbTV.
