Video streaming apps are all the rage and continue to demonstrate rapid growth in usage and creative implementations. Every vertical market has the need for video apps. So, you want to learn how to build a video streaming app, but you don’t know where to get started or you are not a video expert? Or maybe you are just curious about video technology? Then, this session is for you!

To build a live-streaming app for Android, you don’t have to be a video expert. Using a mobile SDK and cloud streaming service can help you quickly and easily integrate live video into an existing app or service or build a livestream app from the ground up. Using these tools, you can build anything from a basic one-way broadcasting platform to a fully interactive live-streaming app that allows users to create and share their own videos. This is referred to as user generated content. It’s all about the tools, huh?

What about the need for speed? More and more apps demand real-time streaming delivery—such as those for gaming, financial trading, auctions or interactive experiences like HQ Trivia—you need an API that’s built for speed. Learn how to send live streams to destinations around the world with the goal to minimize the latency time it takes to display a live video from glass to glass. That is, from the glass of the recording device glass to the glass of the end viewer’s screen.

Join Russ Fustino, Wowza Developer Evangelist, in this informative session and see how easy it is to get started building Android apps using video streaming with actual latency in the sub 3 second range anywhere on the globe. Times are changing. Keep up with the times. Hope to see you at the session!

What you will learn in this session:

How to use video streaming in Android apps.
How to use video streaming sample code.
How to reduce latency of the stream.
Learn about video streaming basics.
API code and Video SDK.
