Real-time streaming for sports and e-sports is key to avoid spoiler effects. Seeing a goal 30 seconds after you have received a notification on social media or a text message from friends is a fiasco for many sports fans. The same is true for viewers who watch live streaming of e-sports. Of course online video games also require real-time streaming for the gamers, to be able to interact with other gamers, and to make sure that they are not behind the enemy!
Having a virtual seat at the table of a casino requires high-quality video and fluent interaction with the other players. When these two elements are not present, it will affect the user experience. Also, real-time streaming will ensure that all players see the turn of the cards in real-time, and can place bets more quickly, which ultimately increases the number of hands that can be played.
Auctions move fast, and even latencies of 2 or 3 seconds in the online bidding process could result in someone being outbid by persons physically attending the auction. For live auctions real-time streaming is also important to make sure online biddings are recorded on time for the auctioneer to be able to take them into account.
Events such as fairs, conferences, sports activities, music concerts etc. are not just organized physically anymore. Over the last years virtual events have gained a lot of interest, either as an alternative to physical events, or to further extend the physical audience with a virtual audience, bringing hundreds or thousands of additional participants. Real-time streaming enables these virtual participants to easily interact with other participants and presenters, avoiding delayed speeches, and allowing for questions & answers.
Remote education is increasingly used by teachers, and has boosted since the start of the COVID pandemic as teachers have been streaming lessons to their students as an alternative to classroom courses. However, if you want to make digital learning experiences a success, students and teachers should be able to ask live questions and interact with each other. Real-time streaming is key in enabling this interaction.
