Aiming to redefine and optimise end-to-end video streaming and workflow management, Haivision has bought LightFlow Media Technologies, the media optimisation business of Epic Labs.

The acquisition adds artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to Haivision’s portfolio to form the basis for advances in content-aware video encoding, content indexing, object detection, as well as optimisation of video contribution, distribution, and delivery for low latency live feeds or video on-demand.
LightFlow’s technology suite also gives Haivision an advanced media cloud orchestration architecture, a foundation to accelerate the company’s cloud strategy of creating an ecosystem of modular video streaming and management technologies.

The companies believe that by applying artificial intelligence in different layers of the video workflow, they can harness the combined power of the cloud and edge processing to reinvent the way broadcast and media organisations produce, deliver and monetise content.

Epic Labs is a cutting-edge innovator in cloud development and AI for video streaming,” said Mirko Wicha, founder and CEO of Haivision. “By bringing our visions together, we are poised to enable the delivery of revolutionary new end-to-end media solutions that will transform low-latency streaming workflows – from contribution and distribution, all the way to delivery and monetisation.”

“LightFlow brings a vast expertise and technology to improve video workflows leveraging artificial intelligence,” added Epic Labs founder and CEO Alfonso Peletier. “LightFlow finds in Haivision the scale and reach of the world leader in performance streaming. The joint team and technologies will accelerate our shared vision of delivering revolutionary cloud workflows to the market and the community.”
