Driven by user frustrations at watching live broadcast such as sporting events on a slight delay, OTT and IPTV software solutions provider Anevia is contributing encoder technology to a project with Viaccess-Orca for what they call ultra-low latency live streaming.

anevia 16March2018Orange Group subsidiary and content protection and video platform firm Viaccess-Orca will be supplying the secure video player to a combination which the partners say has been optimised and integrated to reduce latency and allow streaming at as close to real time as possible.

The solution is designed to allow audiences to live stream everything with sub-second delay. This the two companies say is in stark contrast to the up to eight-second broadcast standard delay and the between 30 to 60 seconds with other traditional OTT systems. They add that thanks to this partnership, viewers will be able to keep latency low while live streaming from any device and watch events before receiving related tweets from their friends.

Commenting on the collaboration, Anevia CTO and co-founder Damien Lucas said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Viaccess-Orca on this solution. It is a great opportunity to unite our products and provide customers with a unique solution to their streaming problems. The solution will be available for anybody wanting to reduce latency when streaming which will ultimately enhance their overall live viewing experience.”

“Video ecosystems are technically more and more complex; reducing playback delay on OTT devices greatly improves end-user experience; it can only be offered through a joint work between back-end and front-end top-expert providers, added Chem Assayag, EVP marketing and sales at Viaccess-Orca. This is what is achieved through our cooperation with Anevia.”
