About the Talk

Today’s CDNs aren’t optimized for real-time, scalable, multi-way live streaming. See how an XDN (Experience Delivery Network) helps deliver seamless interactive experiences for massive audiences by managing signal acquisition/ingest, latency, interactivity, and scaling in the cloud.

What You’ll Learn

  • When to use cloud services, edge compute, and traditional CDNs
  • Protocols that reduce live streaming latency
  • Monitoring strategies that deliver seamless viewer experience
  • Avoiding vendor lock-in by controlling your stack

This Talk Is Designed For

  • Software developers
  • Anyone that wants to build applications that offer live, interactive streaming
  • Broadcasters and businesses that use OTT (over-the-top communications)

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of how streaming is applied to cloud-based distribution and delivery to end users
