Symphony - Native Video & Audio

When using the built-in video & audio options of Symphony, latency is typically under .5 seconds. When your audience size is a few hundred to a thousand attendees, account for .5 - 2 seconds of latency.

Symphony - RTMP & Embed

You may use external production platforms, such as StreamYard, Restream or Socialive, as well as online meeting platforms, such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams Live, to broadcast into Symphony through our integration with Mux RTMP or through embedding a player from a streaming platform such as YouTube Live or Vimeo Live Events. The average latency for these platforms is between 15-25 seconds.
