SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Agora.io, a global leader in real-time communication (RTC) solutions, will be represented by Tony Wang, co-founder and head of emerging technology and markets, at NAB Show New York 2018, where he will speak on a key panel to discuss the shift from legacy cable TV to Internet-enabled streaming video.

The panel—'How Streaming Video Can Replace Cable TV at Scale and Quality'—will be moderated by Steve Miller-Jones, senior director of product management at Limelight Networks, and take place on Wednesday, October 17th from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM ET at the Jacob K. Javits Center (room 3D08) in New York City.

Joined by co-panelists Rob Dillon, digital operations manager at Tribune Media Company, and Pierre-Yves Maunier, distinguished network architect at Dailymotion, Wang will explore the current technological barriers in live streaming and how content owners can deliver high-quality, low latency live video at scale as consumers' TV viewing habits change.

Having recently crossed two billion installs for its real-time voice and video SDKs, Agora's RTC platform powers 300-500 million minutes of live communications per day for applications across a wide range of industries, including social discovery, social media, gaming, e-commerce, telemedicine, education, financial services, customer service, and more. Wang will bring his deep expertise in RTC technology and experience in bringing Agora's live streaming solutions to over 200 regions to the NAB Show stage.

"While live streaming technology has made significant progress in recent years, many content providers still struggle to deliver consistent real-time video quality to users at global scale. Live video is complex because latency becomes a bigger challenge as the number of concurrent viewers increases, but these are solvable problems," says Wang. "I look forward to sharing Agora's solutions to those challenges and how companies across different verticals can provide their viewers with live streaming experiences that surpass traditional video formats."

Agora's unique software-defined real-time network (SD-RTN™) utilizes a network of over 200 globally distributed data centers and a dynamic routing algorithm that optimizes network traffic in real time, resulting in 99.995% uptime and true quality of service (QoS) with an average end-to-end global latency of under one second at scale. Agora's robust communications infrastructure ensures high-quality, ultra low-latency voice and video no matter the user's geographic location or device.

"Internet-enabled live video is the medium of the future," says Reggie Yativ, Agora's CRO and COO. "We're excited about the innovations that live streaming technology has brought to mainstream media and we're proud to play a pivotal part in this movement as people across the globe gain access to entertaining, informative, and potentially life-changing real-time content without cords."
