Reducing Stream Latency

Reducing Stream Latency (June 27, 2019)

June 27, 2019 (10am PST)

Consumers have been spoiled by traditional broadcast television—they sit on the couch, grab the remote, press the power button, and, WHAM, TV jitter free and without delay. But that’s not always the case with streaming video. Travelling over an unmanaged network like the Internet, streaming can be subject to an innumerable number of small events that can add up to a lot of latency. And, especially when it comes to live events like sports, any kind of latency can turn viewers off from the streaming experience. In this webinar, we’ll explore some of the ways that video distributors can reduce stream latency and a few of the best practices being employed by some of the biggest streamers on the planet.

Panelists for this webinar included:

  • Kevin Johns (CenturyLink)
  • Chris Sammoury (Charter)
  • Johan Bolin (Edgeware)
  • Patrick Gendron (Harmonic)
  • Fritz Seifts (Limelight Networks)
  • Richard Oesterreicher (Streaming Global)

This webinar was moderated by Jason Thibeault, Executive Director of the Streaming Video Alliance. You can follow Jason on Twitter @_jasonthibeault.
