In this webinar, the challenges with delivering low latency video are discussed. We also take a deeper dive to look at what causes latency, the WebRTC protocol and how Limelight Networks delivers real-time streaming at global scale. Topics discussed during this webinar include: Challenges delivering low-latency video Various approaches for reducing latency (small chunk HLS, peer-to-peer, WebRTC) Encoding and codecs Stream access and security How to implement interactivity into live streaming video Speaker: Ernest Russell - Technical Product Marketing Manager at Limelight Networks [bc_video video_id="6016397350001" account_id="4229317768001" player_id="BkgkXSCcOM" embed="in-page" padding_top="56%" autoplay="autoplay" min_width="0px" max_width="640px" width="100%" height="100%"]
Last year, Ben Schwarz, the owner of CTO innovation, and Jérôme Blanc, EVP Compression Products at Anevia, co-authored an eBook about why low latency is important. Streaming live events was one big driver.
Now, part 2 of the eBook – the quick tech tour that explains how to achieve it – is out. It explains how to reduce latency to less than 5 seconds. It delves into new technology trends in OTT such as virtualisation, edge processing, and MEC, and the impact they have on latency and delay.
This business-focused eBook is the first of a two-part series. Part 2 will address the technology aspects of stream delay reduction.
Over the past eight years, more and more people have watched FIFA world cup football matches over the Internet, reaching new highs every year. But this year, it’s not just the growth that was spectacular, but absolute numbers: online streaming of FIFA 2018 smashed all records with 70 million viewers in a country like India, where football isn’t a national sport.
Aperi’s V-Stack – a new kind of live production infrastructure
James Stellpflug – VP Product Marketing, EVS Remote production is one of the most significant benefits of IP infrastructure but along with it comes one of the biggest challenges of an IP-based live media workflow. James speaks about the importance of implementing sophisticated routing and control systems for IP flows to ensure that IP feeds aren’t affected by any latency and can be controlled and delivered for playout – as securely and with the highest quality as point-to-point/SDI networks.

Software and system developers have learned to minimize latency and jitter when writing to physical NICs, but what are the parameters for virtual NICs in virtual machines? This presentation by Thomas Burns (CTO, Media & Entertainment, Dell EMC) will explore select variables in hardware and software packages for virtual production.

In this presentation Ed Calverley (Product Director, Suitcase TV) looks at how the current standards work is enabling true end-to-end IP-based production and how standards such as SMPTE ST 2110 enable systems to interoperate in a much more flexible way than was possible with SDI. The options for extending the IP studio architecture to support remote production are discussed including the issues of latency and how new architectures can successfully compensate for any delays ensuring frame accurate production regardless of the distances between sources and operators. The presentation ends by looking at a real-world example where a time compensated 2-stage switching solution was used during the Euro 2016 football tournament to provide frame accurate switching over a limited-bandwidth link.
