Despite driving the original innovation of live streaming media, the broadcast industry (like many others), has faced disruption in the age of the internet. Non-traditional methods of consuming media such as “Over The Top” streaming (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) have wrested audiences away from cable and emerged as strong contenders in the market. However, though some of us have cut the cord on cable, we've certainly all kept our televisions plugged-in. Cable is not synonymous with broadcasting. Speed is the name of the game right now.

If one isn't careful, placing a bid can be like walking into oncoming traffic. It's fairly obvious that when it comes to placing bids, timing is very, very important. All the more so, when creating an online live-auction with live video streaming. Long delays can create giant issues. Of course in this case, long is a matter of only seconds.
