Streaming providers are raising the technology bar in the competition to capture live sporting events viewers — but providing consistent high video quality continues to be a challenge.
That’s the takeaway from “The State of Live Sports Streaming,” a webinar panel discussion with Thomas Edwards, Principal Solutions Architect, Global Accounts, at Amazon Web Services. Dr. Abddul Rehman, CEO, CTO, and Co-Founder of SSIMWAVE, and moderator Jason Thibeault, Executive Director of the Streaming Video Alliance.
Across streaming providers and numerous sports, the panelists looked at the leaders and laggards in streaming quality and why visibility into streaming workflows is critical to correcting issues before they impact the viewing experience.
Watch the webinar recording to hear the panelists’ thoughts on the current state of sports streaming, how innovations, including helmet cams and 4K and 8K displays, can actually reduce viewer experiences, what issues are driving churn and impacting providers, and how using the SSIMPLUS perceptual quality metric can help you deliver the best quality stream no matter what device your viewers are watching the game on.
