Why Live Streaming Matters

More people are working remotely than ever before. Many of us routinely rely on video conferencing and other forms of live streaming to carry out our work. After sitting through countless incomprehensible video calls, we’ve decided to look at live audio quality more closely. To fix this issue, we have to be able to diagnose it, on a large scale. We’re currently working on an application that can be embedded into various live streaming and video conferencing platforms to rate the quality of a viewer’s experience and identify sources of error in real-time.
Ultimately, we want to make live streaming and video conferencing a much more enjoyable experience.

Who We Are

LiveSensus is a team of students within the Alchemy Technology Foundry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We are working on building an application that can be used to assess live streaming quality in real-time so that it can be improved. With over 42% (and growing) of the U.S. workforce working remotely and routinely relying on technologies like video conferencing and live streaming, understanding how people perceive live streaming quality is our top priority. Currently, we are gathering audio quality data through this survey. If you would like to contribute to our mission, please consider taking it.
