The Wowza Streaming Cloud™ service allows you to deliver live streams to viewers over three protocols: RTMP and RTSP directly from the transcoder, and Apple HLS from a CDN endpoint. If latency is your primary concern, direct RTMP and RTSP playback is the faster option, but the number of concurrent viewers who can watch your stream this way is limited. Apple HLS delivery from a CDN endpoint, on the other hand, allows you to reach more viewers--and more geographically dispersed viewers--but the latency is greater.
