Webinar: How Live Streaming is Introducing New Opportunities for Broadcasters

Date: 28th March, 2018

Live internet streaming brings new use cases and business models that are not possible with traditional broadcast TV services due to their geographic coverage restriction.  With rapid changes in the types of online video content viewers are consuming, it’s likely there will be a higher percentage of live video data over the next 2 years.

This webinar will discuss these new use case opportunities and their potential for generating significant revenue:

  • The largest sports events broadcasting including Soccer World Cup and Olympics, are  live streamed to audiences who don’t have access to the broadcast, or who prefer to watch on their mobile device. Key to delivering a great experience is reducing the typical 40 second latency of the live stream compared to the broadcast. Learn how to reduce latency to just a few seconds, and even to less than 1 second.
  • Online gambling is drawing large numbers of players today. Learn about new technologies that deliver an improved user experience for players by providing interactivity for betting. Speeding game play by lowering the online video stream latency provides players with the best experience, and drives increased revenue for casinos and video delivery.
  • Live auctions, and many types of games are now possible online that leverage the interactive capabilities and low latency of the newest live streaming technologies.
  • Language-based programming is becoming very important. We see many services available for German or French, etc. language programs to reach Ex-Patriot audiences living outside their country. Delivering language programming anywhere in the world is not possible with traditional TV broadcasters. Using the internet to deliver the video means there are no geographic boundaries. This use case is growing rapidly, and is expected to become a major market opportunity.
