Global CDN provider and supplier of cloud and edge solutions, G-Core Labs, has joined the HESP Alliance and implemented the HESP protocol in their content delivery network. The firm is now allowing its clients to save money while distributing live video content in a low-latency manner to millions of consumers across the world. G-Core Labs claims to deliver live video content with delays of no more than two seconds.
HESP (High Efficiency Stream Protocol) is a new adaptive video streaming protocol. Unlike its forerunners, WebRTC, RTMP, HLS, and MPEG-DASH, HESP would be a low-cost protocol that allows enterprises to distribute video content to a large audience with little delay. HESP is a highly scalable technology as well that can be combined with the G-Core Labs content delivery network, making this feasible. More than 120 Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in more than 100 cities across the world make up the latter.
“With the media industry being a highly competitive environment, minimizing latency is your gateway to the future,” said Alexey Petrovskikh (aka Alex Peterson), head of the G-Core Labs streaming platform. “We are happy to join the HESP Alliance. We will explore cutting-edge technologies together and provide our clients with a modern solution for professional streaming and broadcasting. We are sure that the HESP protocol will complement our CDN very well. Our CDN has already demonstrated the highest performance values in Europe, North America, Latin America, and in the CIS countries.”
Businesses who want low-latency streaming and are looking to cut expenses may find the new technology particularly appealing. The HESP protocol, for example, enables cybersports organizations to provide video material to end consumers quicker than the HLS or MPEG-DASH protocols. It would enable MedTech and e-learning initiatives to have broadcasts with students and patients without the need for costly external solutions, as well as sports media to broadcast events in near-real time.
The new protocol’s capabilities might be valuable in businesses where broadcasting high-quality video is critical. This includes, for example, betting companies and auction houses. Furthermore, the new solution enables you to mix IPTV and OTT technologies to produce full-featured, high-quality broadcasts. It enables clients to broadcast video material to millions of people in real time at a reasonable cost.
The HESP protocol can be used for video streaming over the G-Core Labs content delivery network. As said, this CDN spans five continents and comprises over 120 Points-of-Presence in 100+ locations, all of which are situated in Tier III and Tier IV data centers. Clients of the company may send large amounts of video material practically anywhere throughout the globe using this technology. The effectiveness of this solution was put to the test by millions of users at the same time, according to the company itself.
