Example Questions

Getting content from storage to client takes more than just a server and some bandwidth. It requires specialized software and infrastructure to optimally deliver the right content, to the right device, at the right time.

Network operators, infrastructure providers, content owners, and distributors are all faced with tough questions as they seek and implement solutions to deliver online video content:

  • “How do I scale my infrastructure quickly to meet the demands of flash crowds?”
  • “How do I ensure the resiliency of delivery in the face of unplanned outages?”
  • “How do I reduce latency through end-to-end delivery?”

The Streaming Video Alliance is focused on developing the best practices and specifications that will enable infrastructure providers and other delivery value-chain participants the ability to provide an efficient, scalable, resilient, and flexible solution.
