Near real-time (also next-to-real-time)

pertains to the delay introduced, by data processing or network transmission, between the occurrence of an event and the availability of the processed data, e.g., for display or feedback and control purposes. For example, a near-real-time display depicts an event or situation as it existed at the current time less the processing time.[1]
[p]ertaining to the timeliness of data or information which has been delayed by the time required for electronic communication and automatic data processing. This implies that there are no significant delays.[2]

Overview Edit

The distinction between near real-time and real-time varies and the delay is dependent on the type and speed of the processor or transmission.
