NEW NPAW White Paper: “The Challenges of Streaming Live Sporting Events”

Any true sports fanatic will tell you that we are in a Golden Age of easy access games. The video revolution has moved audiences away from their television sets and cable boxes, to their phones and tablets where live-streaming content is an app’s click away. Unlike VOD, Live video streaming faces different challenges along the digital supply chain. It is with this in mind, we are pleased to announce the release of a new NPAW white paper entitled, The Challenges of Streaming Live Sporting Events.  

In the white paper, readers will find interesting points about the outstanding challenges online video providers experience when streaming Live Sporting events. Some of these challenges include the degree to which Quality of Experience influences an end user’s tendency to remain engaged with a video, how Live VR streaming is affected by delivery disturbances, and how real time data collection and analytics can help to optimize the delivery of any online content.

It also elaborates on the chief technical challenges that live streaming presents. Then about how content and service providers can start zeroing in on the streaming problems and overcoming technical and other challenges, by improving their ability to monitor their video delivery networks, track issues as they develop, and gather data that can help them resolve those issues as soon as possible.

So, whether a media company which streams live sporting events, a similar content provider interested in perfecting its webcasting capabilities, or just someone interested in how big data is revolutionizing the way video content is sent from provider to end user, all are welcomed to read our new white paper. It is available for download here, free of charge.  

Just another thing to think about from us here at NPAW.
