Webinar: Deliver global sub-second live streaming experiences to increase viewer engagement

Date: Thursday March 21st, 2019
Time: 15:00 GMT

With live online viewing delayed by up to 30 seconds or more compared to broadcast TV, enriching the viewing experience with online content, while ensuring that all viewers see the action at the same time, is a significant challenge. To provide viewers with engaging online experiences that keep them coming back for more, service providers need true real-time streaming.

This webinar will cover questions such as:

  • How important is latency for live online streaming?
  • Which live streaming workflows offers the greatest opportunity to generate additional revenue?
  • What are the main challenges faced by online video service providers when live-streaming major events such as sports tournaments?

Being a webinar from Limelight, you will also hear

  • How Limelight realtime streaming minimizes latency
  • How to reach the widest audience with native browser support
  • How to enable new business models with interactivity
  • How to reach viewers everywhere

All this along with key findings from DTVE’s industry survey, showing that industry executives believe live streaming could ultimately supplant broadcast technology, but challenges remain.

Video: VP9 Transcoding for Live eSports Broadcast

VP9 is a well-known codec, but it hasn’t seen many high-profile, live deployments which makes Twitch’s move to deliver their platform using VP9 in preference over AVC all the more interesting.

Here, Yueshi Shen from Twitch, explains the rationale for VP9 by explaining the scale of Twitch and looking at their AVC bitrate demands. He explains the patent issues with HEVC and VP9 then looks at decoder support across devices and platforms. Importantly, encoder implementation is examined leading to Twitch’s choice of FPGA to provide live encoding.

Yueshi then looks at the potential of AV1 to Switch_Frame to provide low-latency broadcast at scale.

Video: Using CMAF to Cut Costs, Simplify Workflows & Reduce Latency

There are two ways to stream video online, either pushing from the server to the device like WebRTC, MPEG transport streams and similar technologies, or allowing the receiving device to request chunks of the stream which is how the majority of internet streaming is done – using HLS and similar formats.

Chunk-based streaming is generally seen as more scalable of these two methods but suffers extra latency due to buffering several chunks each of which can represent between 1 and, typically, 10 seconds of video.

CMAF is one technology here to change that by allowing players to buffer less video. How does this achieve this? An, perhaps more important, can it really cut costs? Iraj Sodagar from NexTreams is here to explain how in this talk from Streaming Media West, 2018.

Iraj covers:

  • A brief history of CMAF (Common Media Format)
  • The core technologies (ISO BMFF, Codecs, captions etc.)
  • Media Data Object (Chunks, Fragments, Segments)
  • Different ways of video delivery
  • Switching Sets (for ABR)
  • Content Protection
  • CTA WAVE project
  • Wave content specifications
  • Live Linear Content with Wave & CMAF
  • Low-latency CMAF usage
  • HTTP 1.1 Chunked Transfer Encoding
  • MPEG DASH

Webinar: The Power of Now: Enriching TV with sub-second latency for live streaming


Date: Today, Jan 30th, 2019 15:00 GMT / 10am EST

Limelight, Streaming Video Alliance and Videonet come together to discuss the introduction of WebRTC’s sub-second latency for live streaming which is opening the way for a ‘better-than-broadcast’ experience – enabling new ways to engage viewers and monetise them.

WebRTC provides real-time video delivery and can now be implemented in a CDN environment for large-scale distribution and has extremely low latency.

This webinar covers:

  • Making WebRTC part of your workflow
  • Browser compatibility
  • Compression, DRM & ad insertion
  • Redundancy
  • Innovation opportunities for broadcasters and challenger OTT providers
  • Special focus on increasing viewer engagement
  • creating new revenue streams.
  • New business partnerships
  • Optimisation for multiscreen television & connected TV devices
