General Considerations

  • Dedicated or semi-dedicated bandwidth is important for the highest-quality streaming performance.
  • Wired Internet connectivity is recommended as it tends to be more stable. Wireless will work if the quality of the connection is good.
  • During testing and event, we recommend disabling public Wi-Fi hotspots sharing the same Internet connection.
  • For organizations, segmenting your network traffic, disabling other access completely, or setting up QoS (Quality of Service) will help ensure that the playback machine gets preferred bandwidth.
