Produced in Partnership with Streaming Video Alliance

Latency is a hot-button issue in live sports streaming and a lot of effort is being poured into figuring out how to reduce it. The Streaming Video Alliance Live Streaming Working Group’s recent publication, “Best Practices for Reducing Live Streaming Latency” consolidates recommendations, from Alliance member companies, on ways to reduce latency throughout the streaming workflow. Join Jason Thibeault, Executive Director of the Streaming Video Alliance, and Patrick Gendron, VP of Innovation at Harmonic and Co-Chair of the Live Streaming Working Group, in a fireside chat to discuss the document, an upcoming proof-of-concept to test the recommendations from the group, and what the future of latency looks like in delivering high-quality live events at scale.
