Description

There is plenty of market interest in how edge computing can be used to deliver next generation OTT viewing experiences with low latency. Traditional HTTP streaming formats such as HLS and MPEG-DASH have gained wide acceptance, making it relatively easy to reach viewers on almost any viewing device at global scale. However, these formats have significant limitations when used in traditional live streaming workflows, including slow startup, stream latencies, and latency drift over time. By utilizing edge compute resources, new methods and formats are emerging to address these limitations and improve the experience for viewers and content distributors.
