Under the terms of the agreement between the two parties, Anevia will supply the encoder side of the solution while Viaccess-Orca will supply the secure video player.
The combination of Anevia and Viaccess-Orca software has been optimised and integrated to reduce latency and allow streaming at as close to real time as possible.
The solution, driven by user frustrations at watching live broadcast such as sporting events on a slight delay, will allow audiences to live stream everything with sub-second delay. This 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.
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.
Commenting on the development, Damien Lucas Anevia CTO and co-founder 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.”
Chem Assayag, EVP marketing & sales at Viaccess-Orca, added: “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.
This is what is achieved through our cooperation with Anevia.”
Anevia and Viaccess-Orca are currently showcasing low latency for live broadcast on stands 5.B66 and 1.A51 at IBC.
