The best live video streaming technology
How many of you have ever used the very popular Flash video streaming technology to do live video streaming for real? I guess very few. Do you know what the best live video streaming technology is today? This could be an expensive question because, once you have invested in a wrong technology, chances are you will stick to it. As a result, you will pay a big price later in many senses.
Live video streaming is widely used in distance education, Web conferencing, online movie delivery, broadcast and so on. Knowing the answer to this question is important to streaming video producers and their companies, schools, government agencies, or organizations. Unfortunately, the answer to this question is not available.
Right now, we are conducting a study to compare eight popular or not-so-popular live video streaming technologies. Please help us help you get the answer. It’s our promise that the process of filling out the questions while watching the live streaming video via each technology will be fun.
Our study is being conducted for the sake of gaining knowledge of live video streaming technologies. We are not interested in promoting any technology being investigated. This is an independent study unfunded by any company.
Although your participation in this study is totally voluntary, we are eager to have you included in our study. Your participation and honest response are crucial to the success of the study and subsequently to the large community of multimedia producers.
We will publish the findings and conclusions from the study online this summer and will notify you right after the study is posted together with the tutorials of how to do live streaming via each of these eight technologies.
