This is an exciting and important step for the streaming industry, stated Richard Oesterreicher, CEO of Streaming Global. Viewers demand low sub-second latency for streamed events like live sports, but the industry needs a reliable, scalable and cost effective solution to thrive and grow. We've never seen a solution as forward-thinking or as perfectly designed for accelerating this industry at scale as HellaStorm's hardware-accelerated server platforms.
How was this possible? The combination of Streaming Global's patent-pending streaming delivery technology and HellaStorm's patented hardware-accelerated servers provides unequalled scalability, high sustained throughput and low Total Cost of Ownership for streaming service providers who require the lowest possible latency. The solution delivers video over standard HTTP, requiring no special or custom delivery protocols, specific codecs or custom encoder steps.
Brent Yates, CTO of HellaStorm added, Today's demonstration is just the beginning. Streaming Global's technology enables scalable low latency live streaming using standard cloud architecture. HellaStorm's hardware-accelerated cloud services stack further reduces the latency and increases the ROI at scale. Together Streaming Global and HellaStorm will change the way live streaming is implemented world-wide.
Oesterreicher also says, Sub-second latency has become a holy grail of sorts. We just demonstrated it in front of a live audience over the public Internet in a building and network we don't control.
