Re: Live streaming havng the right technology
mhhf1ve - I think that's always the hope with each new generation of technology, but the more capacity you make available, at least so far, the faster traffic grows to fill it. That being said, there are differences in the way 5G is being designed in order to try and rely not only on capacity and throughout.

Re: Live streaming havng the right technology
dcawrey - It's an awkward issue for operators. On one hand they want more video, more traffic on their network, because it makes their product more valuable. On the other hand, it can't grow too big too fast, because they can't keep investing in infinite capacity. So network traffic should grow just about in line with their business case, and no faster. That's an exquisite balance that is hard to organize.

What the human community has always been spiritually, it may soon be literally. Dust off all the 1940-70 literature about how phony everyone is....

mhhf1ve  - there's something to be said for that approach even in real life.

Re: Live streaming havng the right technology
If you remember the Jetsons cartoon, they thought of some of these problems with live video calls... and solved it with "masks" that a caller could put on so the other end saw a perfectly coifed version of you. I assume with cgi augmented reality, we'll have real time digital avatars that hide our true physical selves....

Re: Live streaming havng the right technology
Well, even in the real world we all learn ways to be there/not there with our eyes open and appearing to be engrossed while actually thinking about anything else in the universe. If live teleconferencing really does become the main way of doing business, it will probably evolve a similar set of defense mechanisms.

Re: Live streaming havng the right technology
Yeah, the dream of constant live video conferencing is probably something no one really wants. It's just too taxing to be "on" for a live performance and attentive all the time.

Re: Live streaming havng the right technology
mhhf1ve,

The real demand is probably for catch-up-able live streaming, being able to have both a "wht's happening now" screen and a "highlights from earlier" screen.  The latter can be chunked and selected and doesn't have to be super-fast, so the window for the former can be really, really narrow (maybe just a few seconds, maybe even "true live.") At an offhand guess some such arrangement will probably mean that there's just never much of a bandwidth problem, especially since "live" is less of a selling point to younger viewers.

Re: Live streaming havng the right technology
I really is only a matter of time -- so that the tech can catch up. Maybe when 5G is fully deployed (along with the underlying infrastructure improvements)? 

It's not like live streaming requires two-way live streaming? That'll be next, though, I'm sure.

Re: Live streaming havng the right technology
Live streaming is already being used for broadcast events. Think about the NFL on Twitter or the Super Bowl. Sure, not everyone is watching online yet, but I think it's only a matter of time.
