Broadcast streaming 8k around the globe

Low-latency 8K Live Internet Streaming

Combining the low-latency configuration of the encoder(h.265 on Intel Xeon) and the low-latency settings in the transport protocol(HLS, AWS cloudfront) it was possible to transmit 8K live video streams with a glass-to-glass latency between 1 and 2 seconds.

We measured the end-to-end latency from Poznan to the different playback locations using synchronized clocks. The table below presents the end-to-end latency measurements and the contribution of the different components in the pipeline.

Viewing locations included NHK Technologies in Tokyo, Globo in Rio de Janeiro, Intel in Portland Oregon, and Spin Digital in Berlin.
