Minerva YourTV Now, powered by Com Net’s video head-end, now features a new low-latency streaming service which is said to be deal for the OTT delivery of live sporting events. Anevia’s low-latency video processing technology is claimed to be able to remove the lag between broadcast TV and live streaming which is typically in the 15-20 second range. Minerva YourTV Now is said to be the first service in North America offering such ultra-low latency streaming capabilities.

“Service providers have now one more reason to upgrade their legacy television offering,” said Jean-Georges Fritsch, CTO at Minerva Networks. “With Minerva’s YourTV Now service, operators can now deliver a superior experience to their subscribers on a full range of devices, including STBs, connected consumer devices (BYODs), tablets and mobile phones.”

“We are thrilled we can now support low-latency streaming, allowing services like Minerva’s YourTV Now to compete effectively against traditional broadcast delivery systems,” added Anevia CTO and co-founder Damien Lucas. "When it comes to live sporting events, Minerva’s customers can now offer television services comparable to those delivered by cable TV and IPTV systems.”
