I work in video post production. As many of us, I’m now looking at ways to stream my production monitor to a client who watches on a iPad or laptop. Ideally we would keep latency to 1-2s max. However, in my initial test with Wowza, I’m seeing latency of 22s. I’m hoping I’m doing something wrong and there is an easy answer.
Setup is client monitor SDI connection into BMD MiniMonitor as input to OBS. OBS streams via SRT to Wowza Cloud. Form there I have tried both the hosted page and just the HLS URL in an HMTL5 video tag.
In all cases the streams work as expected. But between me doing an event on my color app that changes the screen, and that same change appearing in the player I can count 22s.
I’m on a Gigabit broadband connection, so network latency should not be an issue. I’ve done direct SRT streams from another city with maybe 2-3s latency.
