Best Practices for Measuring Performance of Streaming Video

At the Streaming Media West show next week, (#smwest) Nathan Dye, Software Development Manager at Amazon Web Services, will demonstrate the best practices for measuring and monitoring the quality of your videos streamed to end-users. Nathan will provide practical guidance using external agent-based measurements and real user monitoring techniques, and discuss CDN architectures and how they relate to performance measurement. Finally he’ll walk through real-world CDN performance monitoring implementations used by Amazon CloudFront customers for video delivery.
