Majority of us relate 5G to better video reception. And, thus overlook the real potential of video production, distribution and live video experience. Low latency, guaranteed bandwidth, location accuracy are some of the other key benefits that comes with 5G.
Parks Associates Data reports that 41% of US broadband households watch broadcast TV, and 72% subscribe to a pay-TV service that offers live, linear channels. And since this percentage is only going to grow, how can content producers leverage 5G to get a bigger market share?
We spoke to Olivier Suard, Vice-President of Marketing, Nevion, about the company’s leading role in the EU’s VIRTUOSA project which aims to take advantage of the potential of 5G in live production.
Find out more about Broadpeak’s BaM Award Winning solution, nanoCDN™ with Ultra Low Latency and Device Synchronization.
“Broadpeak’s nanoCDN solution improves live streaming experiences thanks to decreasing the latency. Latency measured in a perfect condition network of a lab, will be the same as a real-life system. It won’t depend on the network condition at a given time. IPTV moving to a full ABR system is a true breakthrough for operators.”
Steve Miller-Jones (VP of Product Strategy, Limelight Networks) discusses video delivery
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.
