Best Practices for Reducing Live Streaming Latency
Over-the-Top (OTT) video streaming is accelerating towards a tipping point where broadcasters are simulcasting their content to both OTT and traditional broadcast customers. This has raised concern with the latency delta between broadcast and OTT streams. In addition, new OTT use cases have emerged that demand the lowest possible latency. This paper explores techniques available to streaming video distributors to reduce the latency of their streaming content from encoder to screen.
Goals and Objectives
- Analyzing the entire streaming workflow, identifying all components or technologies, and addressing their potential impact to the overall latency of the streaming experience
- Recommendations for improve latency through the optimization of components or technologies within the workflow
- An analysis of the use cases driving the desire to reduce live streaming latency
- A detailed look at the different technologies and components within the streaming video workflow and what their contribution to the overall latency might be
- Recommendations of best practices for optimizing different technologies and components within the streaming video workflow to remediate latency
- A recommendation of one specific technology over another to mitigate latency
