Latency can kill

Mark Claypool, Kajal Claypool
2010 Proceedings of the first annual ACM SIGMM conference on Multimedia systems - MMSys '10  
While the effects of latency on specific games has been studied, knowledge about the effects of latency on classes of games and about the effects of latency on different player actions is lacking.  ...  Experiments with controlled amount of precision, deadline and latency support the classification.  ...  Acknowledgments A special thanks to Chris Burgess and Nathan Roy for their modifications to the BZFlag code and running of the experiments.  ...

2017 Proceedings of the 8th ACM on Multimedia Systems Conference - MMSys'17  
In addition, we study the expected latency reduction by near future technological development and show that its potential impact is bigger on the end-to-end latency than that of replication of the service  ...  We also perform a Europewide latency measurement study to find the optimal server locations and see how the number of server locations affects the network delay.  ...  Hence, our work differs from previous studies that have used latency limits whose effect on user experience have been characterized through Mean Opinion Score (MOS) scale ratings in subjective experiments  ...

This paper presents Kahawai 1 , a system that provides high-quality gaming on mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones, by offloading a portion of the GPU computation to server-side infrastructure  ...  In our evaluation, we show that Kahawai can deliver gameplay at an acceptable frame rate, and achieve high visual quality using as little as one-sixth of the bandwidth of the conventional thin-client approach  ...  To characterize latency, we measure the time elapsed between when Kahawai samples an input event and when Kahawai shows the frame reflecting the effect of that input event.  ...
