NAB makes every effort to deliver high quality streaming video. There are some cases where the stream may not work and you will experience buffering issues.
The minimum bandwidth required to view the live webcasts is 2 mbps. The recommended optimal bandwidth is 5 mbps. Due to other Local Area Network security within your organization, such as your corporate firewall or web content filtering, you may run into quality issues that may cause lowered bandwidth or prevent internet streams from working properly at all.
NAB recommends that you take these steps prior to watching the live webcast stream:
If your station does not have adequate bandwidth to watch the live webcast stream, it is recommended that you wait for the webcast archive to become available. The archived webcasts require less bandwidth than the live sessions. Archives are typically uploaded within 24-hours following the live presentation. An email is sent to webcast subscribers as soon as the archive is available.
