THEO Technologies designs hesp.live: an HTTP-based video streaming solution running over the HESP protocol
THEO Technologies has recently launched hesp.live, a HTTP-based real-time video streaming infrastructure that reaches sub-second latency at scale. The company has created this solution leveraging the High Efficiency Streaming Protocol (HESP) that enables live interactivity at scale for industries such as sports, betting, auctioning, gaming and live events.
THEO Technologies was an early adopter of low latency streaming protocols such as LL-DASH and LL-HLS in THEOplayer, and invented HESP to further lower latency. HESP is an HTTP-based streaming protocol that works over standard CDN internet infrastructure.
hesp.live is an end-to-end cloud-based HESP service that covers the pipeline from video ingest and distribution over a global CDN to video playback and extensive scaling. The solution is designed to make real-time streaming at scale. It’s an API-first solution, which brings the video infrastructure of large media companies to any developer.
“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.live has the ability to stream ultra-fast and cost efficiently to thousands or even millions of concurrent viewers without any scaling challenges.”
