Essential Guide: Intelligent CDN For BroadcastersNovember 24th 2021 - 09:30 AM
Media streaming over the internet is unique. Packet switched networks were never designed to deliver continuous and long streams of media but instead were built to efficiently process transactional and short bursts of data. The long streams of video and audio data are relentless in their network demands and to distribute them effectively requires the adoption of specialist CDNs.
Latency is a fact of the internet, but to distribute and deliver OTT media we must keep it as low as possible. Although traditional CDNs help improve delivery, they tend to provide a general method of delivery for all internet traffic.
The new breed of specialist CDNs that have an appreciation of the intricacies of the unique video and audio attributes, especially when compression is considered, are improving the QoE and delivering the immersive experience users are demanding.
Sponsored by MainStreaming, this Essential Guide investigates the unique attributes of video and audio that makes internet streaming a challenge and discusses the solutions specialist CDNs deliver.
