#smwest session: Latency Still Sucks: So What Can You Do About It?

As live event streaming explodes in popularity, latency—whether time to first frame or end-to-end—is the elephant in the room. Live event streams are competing not only with broadcast and cable, but also with social media, and viewers’ tolerance for long latency times is dwindling. At this session at the Live Streaming Summit, part of Streaming Media West show taking place on Nov. 2/3, you’ll learn about the various ways to reduce latency at all points in your live streaming workflow, from acquisition to delivery to video player.
