Quality matters, but despite advances made in video streaming technology, delivering great quality live video over the
Internet is still not easy. There are challenges with predicting the scale and potential audience location; challenges with
managing complex encoder and origin technology; challenges of delivering video securely and reliably over the Internet;
and challenges of protecting live streams. Add to that the range of devices, the complexity of live event production, and
the demand for HD and 4K image quality and you get a scenario that is more complicated than ever before.
Video quality can be measured in multiple ways, but the primary metrics – playback reliability and image quality – are
the most critical. Get these right, and content providers are on their way to winning the loyalty of online audiences and
driving monetization. Get them wrong, and viewers will defect in a heartbeat. For live-streaming events, such as sports,
where there’s can’t-miss fast action, the ante is raised even higher.
In this white paper, we’ll explore why online video quality matters and the specifics of how it should be measured. Get
a peek “under the hood” to understand the core elements of video delivery that contribute to high-quality viewing
experiences. Most importantly, see why the choice of a content delivery partner is essential to your online video success.
