During IBC 2017, one of the largest broadcasting conferences worldwide, Akamai showcased the new developments in regards to Media Delivery. One of the core products we were showcasing was low-latency streaming made possible with Media Services Live 4.
What you can see at this booth are three screens.
- The screen of the left showcases the Media Services Live 4 ingested stream and delivery by Akamai with Adaptive Media Delivery including the encoding time.
- The screen on the right is was a terrestrial broadcast of the same channel.
- The Mac screen showcased the current time.
With this demo we showcased that streaming with Akamai has a similar latency as broadcasting and in total there was a 6-7 seconds hand-waving latency. (Low Latency is under 10 seconds latency streaming)
Attached is the short 10 second video that showcases the actual latency.
