Wowza Unveils Plan for ‘Ultra Low Latency’ Streaming Service
Whether gamers are looking for help beating the level, an online auction is taking place, or friends are having a video chat halfway around the world, there needs to be streaming that’s as close to real-time as possible — without delays, buffers, or drops.
Today’s streaming technology wasn’t designed with low latency in mind, and therefore can introduce 30 seconds or more of latency — which can result in poor user experiences, missed opportunities to engage, monetize audiences, service interruptions, and lag. To combat this, streaming professionals have had to choose between low-latency streaming or high-quality delivery at scale.
With that dilemma in mind, the Wowza Streaming Cloud service with Ultra Low Latency delivers with less than three seconds of end-to-end latency for audiences as big as you can assemble. Available now, this service provides a consistent user experience across devices and apps.
