A webinar on the WHAT, the WHY, and the HOW of HTTP-based Low Latency Streaming Protocols

With video streaming on the rise, video player solutions face a growing need for an efficient and scalable approach that is adaptable to variable network conditions. Viewers are becoming increasingly demanding when it comes to streaming online video, as latencies and zapping times are expected to be as low as in classic (or even analogue) technologies. 

In this webinar, THEO's CTO and Co-Founder, Pieter-Jan Speelmans and VP of Innovation, Johan Vounckx, will explore the current low latency streaming implementations, namely Low Latency HLS  (LL-HLS); Low Latency DASH (LL-DASH), and THEO's very own High-Efficiency Streaming Protocol (HESP) that not only optimizes latency but also viewer experience. They will also explore how to best pick the right protocol with the right encoding parameters and configurations, evaluating each of the streaming protocols through a real-live comparison next to each other.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to choose the best encoding parameters;
  • How to choose the most suited streaming protocols;
  • How to best configure the streaming protocols.

This webinar also includes the Q&A session from the Live session.
