A poll by TV Technology's sister publication TVBEurope and MediaKind has found consistent broadcast quality across all devices is the most important element for an operator when delivering streaming services.

The poll was carried out as part of our "Live Streaming 2020—Shifting Consumer Habits" webinar.

The audience was asked to vote on what they thought is the most important element for an operator when delivering streaming services.

The options were, consistent broadcast quality across all devices; bandwidth and storage optimization; per user targeted advertising and content replacement; and QoE monitoring and analytics.

Consistent broadcast quality was the overwhelming the choice of the audience, receiving 65.8% of the votes cast.

It was followed by bandwidth and storage optimization, which received 18.4% of the votes.

Per user targeted audience gained 10.5% of the vote, while QoE monitoring and analytics had just 5.3%.

The webinar featured a number of topics, including how the coronavirus pandemic could change sports broadcasting, particularly in terms of remote production; what are the biggest hurdles when starting an event-based streaming service; and will there be an acceleration to HEVC in the next year to improve bandwidth utilization?

"Live Streaming 2020—Shifting Consumer Habits" is available to watch on-demand.
