Can’t We Do Better Than TCP? Streaming High-Quality Live Content With RTMP, HLS or DASH Over Aspera FASPStream
10:30 a.m. - 10:50 a.m.

Successfully stream high-quality near-live content over the Internet can quickly become a near impossible task. Bad network conditions, latency and distance are known to dramatically impair video streaming. Various products and services have been introduced, such as forward error correction over UDP, peer-to-peer distribution and CDNs. However, none provide the same universal quality and "zero-delay" transmission needed for a great experience. Aspera FASPStream is the first open video transport solution capable of live streaming high-quality video globally over commodity Internet networks with low buffering and negligible start-up time. This session will outline how to integrate the Aspera software suite with standard RTMP, HLS and DASH workflows on browser, desktop, mobile and set-top box platforms.

B102 - How To: Identifying Real-World Options for Live Streaming Playback

Considering Adobe’s recent announcement providing an end of support date for Flash, you need to be ready for a Flash-less world. HTML5 has had plenty of time to play catch up and surpass Flash capabilities—or has it? In this session, learn which transport technologies from HTTP, WebRTC, RTSP, and even RTMP work best, when to use them, and where to put your development dollars for maximum return.Programming in UHD has gone up tenfold, although only a relatively Platforms small amount is still available. More media enterprises are coming online with UHD broadcasts, and standards have arrived to a certain degree, with initial support for content and devices. But we are still far from pervasive UHD-ready facilities and end-to-end workflows. This session cuts through the hype to look at what realistically can be accomplished in UHD today and experiences thus far in deploying UHD. The panelists also cast an eye to the future, with discussion around topics such as live UHD event production and streaming and the potential for high dynamic range (HDR).

D103 - HOW TO: Building a More Robust Cloud Encoder With FFMPEG & More

With the speed of technology today, one of the most important parts of software is adaptability. By taking control of your own encoding and packaging, you can greatly reduce cost and maintain high adaptability and agility to meet your needs now and in the future. When working with cloud encoding, there are several transcoding and packaging options, and the APIs for these options will change over time. We talk about how to build a more dynamic cloud encoder that can use the best tool for a specific job by decoupling the tools from the core application, as well as how to mix and match multiple operations concurrently on a single encoding task. Operations include WebVTT and AAC sidecar manifests, DASH assets, metadata, video quality, and stream muxing/demuxing. This session covers some of the strategies we’ve used to handle dynamic cloud encoding and packaging for live and VOD delivery.
