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.

Webinar: The Game of ‘Live’. Strategies for Success

Date: 4th September 2018, 15:00 BST

In this webinar, CSG will explore the world of ‘live’. Particularly live events like the World Cup, the Olympics, live sport and live concerts. Using real-world examples CSG will provide strategies for how non-digital and digital natives looking to expand services can quickly and easily create immersive, interactive and personalised experiences that generate loyalty, grow bottom lines and leave competitors in the dust.

The days of conforming to TV programming are long gone. Connected lifestyles enable viewers to watch how and when they choose…and that includes live events. Leading technology companies, and particularly those focused on social, mobile, analytics and cloud (SMAC) are continuously raising the bar when it comes to consumer engagement and developing a devoted fan base. Undeterred by industry or geographic borders, these organizations are pros at capitalising on events that bring together millions of fans across the globe and then, retaining their loyalty long after.
