NAB Demo: Low Latency Technology Comparison

At NAB 2019, MainConcept showed an exciting side-by-side comparison of various low-latency technologies. On our booth we compared CMAF and ultra low-latency WebRTC with the common OTT MPEG-DASH format, encoding and sending the data from our headquarters in Germany to the show floor in Las Vegas with less than 2s latency glass-to-glass.

There was a live screen capture displaying the current time in Aachen, Germany, and the content was transcoded on the same system. The resulting stream was delivered to the MainConcept booth at NAB in Las Vegas via WebRTC over the public internet. On the receiving PC, this stream was transcoded and packaged live into CMAF, MPEG-DASH and WebRTC using one of the award-winning MainConceptⓇ 2GO microservice modules. The resulting formats were played back in the browser on the same system using the renowned THEOplayer showing the different latencies of these technologies.


As expected, MPEG-DASH showed the highest latency and is not suitable for any live or near-live experiences. CMAF showed extremely good results and already hints that it is capable of low-latency streaming. However, in the end ultra low-latency WebRTC beat them all and it is only a matter of time until it finds its way into OTT streaming workflows.
