THEO Technologies is launching hesp.live, which it describes as the first HTTP-based real-time video streaming infrastructure that reaches sub-second latency at scale.
The company says the solution is currently the fastest HTTP-based video live streaming solution and has the ability to stream ultra-fast to thousands or even millions of concurrent viewers.
“The real game changer here is not only the sub-second latency, but also the unprecedented scaling abilities to reach your entire audience,” said Steven Tielemans, CEO at THEO Technologies. “We questioned our technology partners, clients and peers about their greatest video and streaming challenge, and live low latency at scale was seen as the number one priority.”
HESP is an HTTP-based streaming protocol that works over standard CDN internet infrastructure. According to the company, it can bring interactivity at scale, something which is complex and expensive to achieve with non-HTTP based streaming protocols.
hesp.live is an end-to-end cloud-based HESP solution that covers the full pipeline from video ingest and distribution over a global CDN, to high-quality video playback and extensive scaling. THEO Technologies said it is designed to make real-time streaming at scale easy.
“Live streaming is booming, and we see an increasing need for real-time interactivity at scale, whether it’s to enable live sports betting experiences, to make sure online bids are recorded on time during live auctions, to host virtual events such as conferences, or for gaming, for example. This is exactly the market we’re targeting with hesp.live, and for each of these use cases, challenging the status quo has never been easier,” added Tielemans.
