Learn how to deliver web video with the quality and reliability of HDTV. Dramatically increase viewing times and repeat visits using this scalable online video delivery technology.
Standard video on the Web is plagued by 2 major issues: the quality of the video (either too small or too blurry) and the reliability of the playback (constant rebuffering or stuttering). These two variables are interrelated: increasing the quality requires higher bandwidth, and using less bandwidth to minimize rebuffering sacrifices video quality.
Smooth Streaming solves these issues by dynamically modifying the bandwidth of the video stream based on available bandwidth and individual PC performance. This process is invisible to viewers; they just connect to the live event. If bandwidth drops, the video seamlessly transitions to the next lower stream. When the bandwidth recovers, the stream will automatically use the higher bandwidth. This enables the viewer to watch the live event in the best possible quality at all times, without pauses or interruptions in the video stream.
During this webcast, you will learn about Smooth Streaming from two industry experts, who will teach you:
- What Smooth Streaming is and why it is the future of online video delivery
- How Smooth Streaming delivers HDTV-quality experiences
- How it has been successfully implemented for major live events
- How to start delivering your content with Smooth Streaming
