Live streaming has boosted the physical delivery of live games

Oliver Lietz, CEO for nanocosmos, outlines a new era for live streaming, where live video and audio has turned away from broadcast towards two-way or multi-direction communication.

Interactive live streaming is a growing trend, but the challenge is on to deliver this content ‘Flash-free’, in low latency, and with playback on any device or browser.

Whether it’s a webcaster seeking live feedback during a presentation, a blogger wanting to share experiences with a social media following, or a bidder who wishes to participate in the best auctions around the world, everyone wants to tell a story without delay.

For the gaming industry, this is of course no different.

Take Live Casino as an example, where live streaming has become an effective tool for companies to expand on their physical delivery of live games by involving a wider audience.

Many of these ‘remote’ players are more easily reached through a mobile or tablet, which requires a significant advance on the outdated Flash technology.

For truly interactive live streaming, every second counts. Quite literally for nanocosmos.

This is because for the nanoStream Cloud, including nanoStream H5Live Player, high quality transmission of live video streams with low latency means bringing the game to the viewer around the world in one second.

Ultra-low latency is a hallmark of the new live streaming era, in which speed and security is facilitated by a cloud based service designed for scaled-up audiences.

‘Flash-free’ has now been trumped by the nanoStream H5Live Player technology that allows the ‘plugin-free’ integration of low latency live streams into any browser, including Safari on iOS.

Given the array of different standards, formats, operating systems and browsers, the challenge is still on, but the infrastructure provided by nanoStream Cloud is in place to convince the doubters.

A Berlin-based company with more than 20 years of experience in communication software and services, nanocosmos team will be at ICE London 2018. To arrange a meeting, contact sales@nanocosmos.de, or to test the nanoStream cloud, go to www.nanocosmos.de/demo.
