Let’s get real about Real-Time Streaming
We’re making at-home viewing more engaging. With our Real-Time Streaming capability, broadcasters can deliver video streams in less than one half of a second behind live and engage viewers with interactive experiences such as co-viewing and commentary overlays. Viewers can also choose their viewpoint thanks to synchronized multi-camera streams.
New way to watch the game: Yahoo Sports “Watch Together"
The new Yahoo Sports “Watch Together” app, which debuted on September 10, enables four fans to watch an NFL game together on their mobile devices even when they’re apart. “Watch Together” leverages the power of Real-Time Streaming to bring the in-stadium viewing experience to fans and creates community during the game.
Enhanced Capability: Smartplay SSAI Now With Ad Profile Matching
When ads and content are encoded differently, it can disrupt the viewing experience. To overcome playback issues caused by mismatched video and audio quality, we’ve introduced Ad Profile Matching. This capability automatically matches the encoding profiles of ads and programs to guarantee broadcast-quality streams and ensure consistent quality as viewers transition between ad breaks and content. Ad Profile Matching is automatically activated for all customers using Smartplay.
