4K & TV Quality Live Streaming Services

In order not to lose viewers, all 4K content needs to be optimized for fast loadability.

At the same time, viewers who are unable to load or sustain a 4K version without re-buffering need to be able to load lower bitrate versions of the stream.

Multi-bitrate delivery via global CDNs is critical in order to build and sustain growing viewerships.
