There are many streaming use cases in which latency plays a critical role. Sports. Gaming. Gambling. And each of those use cases presents different technical challenges because they have different demands on how quickly bits are returned to a viewer’s request. In this webinar we’ll pull from the recently published Alliance document, Best Practices For Reducing Live Stream Latency, to explore the different kinds of latency and some of the best practices for tackling the various technical challenges to achieving a better live streaming experience. Panelists will be announced shortly. This webinar will be moderated by Jason Thibeault, Executive Director of the Streaming Video Alliance.
