IoT Thrust Seminar | Unifying Real-Time Communications and Content Delivery with Media-over-QUIC Transport

2:00pm - 3:00pm
Offline Venue: E1 – 102. Meeting ID: 938 937 7956 Passcode: iott

Over-the-top live sports has led sports broadcasting to a new level. Yet, there are still some challenges. For example, nobody wants to hear a neighbor’s cheers when a goal is scored before seeing it on the screen, making low-latency transport and playback indispensable. Synchronization among all viewing devices and social media feeds is also essential. The IETF recently started developing a QUIC-based low-latency delivery solution for media ingest and distribution. The Media-over-QUIC work is still in its infancy but could be a game-changer. In this talk, we will discuss the architectural design issues and present preliminary results from our implementation.
