Hibernia Networks, Haivision offer low latency video streaming solution

Global telecommunications services provider Hibernia Networks and enterprise video and streaming solutions provider Haivision are jointly providing a live RTMP streaming solution for The Video Call Center (VCC), the companies said.

The VCC is a technology and content development company devoted to handling large numbers of IP video remotes-by-smartphone and putting them on the air in professionally produced video-caller television programs. The VCC´s leading-edge video production and distribution solution takes advantage of Hibernia Networks´ low latency CDN services with Haivision´s state-of-the-art Makito X encoding appliances.

The Hibernia Networks and Haivision combined offer allows The VCC to reduce propagation delay below one second, achieving industry-leading performance that results in an improved viewer experience of live content distributed by The VCC over the Internet. Ultra-low latency is critical to The VCC´s Caller Queue, its virtual “green room in the cloud,” where video callers are held until they are brought onto the live show. Improved latency ensures that those callers view live shows in real-time, enabling them to engage instantaneously when they join “on air” conversations.

Hibernia Networks´ CDN Services provide customers a high performance turn-key video streaming solution, while retaining ease-of-use and direct control features. With points of presence in 27 major cities worldwide, it leverages custom-built software, an industry leading low latency global fiber infrastructure, and an IP backbone to maximize performance and availability of content moving across the globe.

Hibernia Networks owns and operates a global network serving more than 100 markets and spanning 25 countries.

Haivision, a private company founded in 2004, provides media management and video streaming solutions that help the world´s leading organizations communicate, collaborate and educate.

The VCC offers an innovative platform that enables content creators to deliver live television programs that bring celebrities, experts and regular viewers into shows through their smart phones and laptops to create truly social television.
