Separate categories like ultra-low latency and near real-time streaming have emerged and these refer to latency coming in under one second, or sub-second latency.
- Near real time for video conferencing and remote devices
- Low latency for interactive content
- Reduced latency for live premium content
- Typical HTTP latencies for linear programming and one-way streams
It's important to remember to balance latency with quality and if you go too low, you can risk some buffering or streaming issues.
