Another approach that seems to incorporate both the advantages of using a standard web protocol and the ability to be used for streaming even live content is adaptive bitrate streaming. HTTP adaptive bitrate streaming is based on HTTP progressive download, but contrary to the previous approach, here the files are very small, so that they can be compared to the streaming of packets, much like the case of using RTSP and RTP. Reliable protocols, such as the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), guarantee correct delivery of each bit in the media stream. However, they accomplish this with a system of timeouts and retries, which makes them more complex to implement. It also means that when there is data loss on the network, the media stream stalls while the protocol handlers detect the loss and retransmit the missing data. Clients can minimize this effect by buffering data for display. While delay due to buffering is acceptable in video on demand scenarios, users of interactive applications such as video conferencing will experience a loss of fidelity if the delay caused by buffering exceeds 200 ms.
Given Nvidia’s prowess in the desktop GPU market, it comes as little surprise that the X1’s GPU—which is based on the company’s desktop Maxwell architecture—packs quite the performance punch. Coupled with the similarly sprightly 64-bit ARM CPU with four Cortex A57 big cores and four A53 little cores, the X1 is one of the most powerful chips in an Android device today. Google has even given the chip its seal of approval by using it in its upcoming Pixel C tablet. Performance is helped by the fact that in the Shield the X1 isn’t constrained by battery or the poor thermal dissipation of a smaller chassis, allowing it to run at full speed for longer without throttling.
Thanks for your help Tim! It would be nice if there were reviews for the different price points like…under $50, under $100, under $200, under $300. There are so many to choose from it’s hard to understand (for newbies) why to spend the extra cash.
