MainStreaming and Intel have joined forces to create what is described as the most advanced real-time high-quality video delivery network for the 2022/23 sporting calendar, enabling millions of concurrent sports fans across Europe to watch live streamed content.
MainStreaming has embedded technology as close to the end user as possible within its private video delivery network.
The technology is optimised for both live and on-demand and can run applications on the edge.
MainStreaming’s private edge video delivery service has incorporated the third generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, which enables up to 1.63x higher throughput, while maintaining optimised delivery for consumers at multiple screen resolutions.
The company added that the managed video delivery network has provided substantial power savings of up to 61 per cent.
“Consumers, and sports fans in particular, expect live streaming to offer the same quality as broadcasting but this just hasn’t been feasible until now”, said Antonio G. Corrado, CEO and founder of MainStreaming.
“Traditional CDN infrastructures were simply not designed with live content in mind so we’ve completely reimagined the approach from the ground up, focusing on how video should be delivered, not how to make the best out of legacy technologies,” he added.
