    [EN] Akamai: 10-second latency

    PR: Akamai bridges gap between live streaming & broadcast television

    New version of Akamai's Media Services Live adds liveOrigin capabilities to address the challenges of streaming always-on linear television channels

    LAS VEGAS, April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Akamai Technologies, Inc., the world’s largest and most trusted cloud delivery platform, is bringing the consistency and reliability of broadcast television to the Internet. The next generation of its Media Services Live system for delivering 24/7 live/linear online video capabilities is designed to support over-the-top (OTT) video service providers, broadcasters and telcos that are operating or launching full-time television channels online.

    Media Services Live includes four new components, together known as liveOriginTM, that operate in concert to support the same level of quality for linear video streaming that is expected of traditional broadcast television:

    Broadcast-Quality Ingestion: The transfer of video from its origination point to the delivery network is a crucial step in linear streaming. Akamai has built a highly distributed ingestion network using the Company’s proven mapping technology to match encoders to the most optimal entry point, creating a system that can automatically route content to different entry points with no viewer impact if the connection is interrupted. Those capabilities are complemented with ingest acceleration, based on Akamai’s Media Acceleration technology, to support throughput of higher bit rates and also mitigate and circumvent poor network connectivity.

    Low Latency: Akamai is introducing 10-second latency as part of Media Services Live, addressing the need for online and broadcast content to play back for viewers near-simultaneously. Particularly important for broadcasters and live sports and news providers, the feature dramatically reduces what has traditionally been a 30-second-or-more delay between broadcast signals and online streams.

    Self-Healing Network: Akamai has incorporated multiple layers of redundancy into Media Services Live in which content is replicated to multiple locations across the network. The design allows for immediate failover if performance is in any way degraded.

    Monitoring & Reporting: Akamai’s new Media Services Live includes near real-time reporting that affords customers critical insights into content and ingest performance. The capabilities replace the minutiae and time inherent to pouring over log files with at-a-glance visualizations of critical, stream-level metrics such as average bitrate, latency, packet loss and error rate among others. Users can set custom thresholds for key metrics that activate alerts when exceeded.

    As a whole, the CDNs still can't seem to deliver true low-latency solutions. Akamai just announced 10-second latency. Still too long.

    Watch Now: First Live 4K Video from Space, Streamed by AWS

    NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson is now broadcasting live from the International Space Station, 250 miles off the Earth in what the space agency says is the “highest-resolution video ever broadcast live from space.”

    The live stream is enabled partly by Amazon Web Services’ Elemental, using AWS CloudWatch, Amazon Route 53, and Amazon CloudFront. These services are providing public access to the stream in both 4K and HD, according to Amazon.

    The stream is taking place in conjunction with the 2017 National Association of Broadcasters conference in Las Vegas.

    The broadcast started at 10:30 am Pacific and will end at 11:30 am. Take a look here:
