Video quality can be measured in multiple ways, but the primary metrics – playback reliability and image quality – are
the most critical. Get these right, and content providers are on their way to winning the loyalty of online audiences and
driving monetization. Get them wrong, and viewers will defect in a heartbeat. For live-streaming events, such as sports,
where there’s can’t-miss fast action, the ante is raised even higher.
In this white paper, we’ll explore why online video quality matters and the specifics of how it should be measured. Get
a peek “under the hood” to understand the core elements of video delivery that contribute to high-quality viewing
experiences. Most importantly, see why the choice of a content delivery partner is essential to your online video success.
This paper, which has been jointly developed by Akamai and Wuaki.tv —
an OTT service provider — covers the importance of satisfying viewer
expectations for a broadcast-quality experience by quickly and reliably
streaming video online. It explains why it is challenging to do so and outlines
best practices for online video delivery. It also explores the option of splitting
traffic across multiple content delivery networks (CDNs) versus tightly
integrating video player technology with a single CDN in order to improve
online video delivery in a strategic manner. Finally, the paper shows how
Wuaki.tv chose the latter option and boosted customer retention, customer
referrals, and revenues as a result.
