HESP Alliance members EZDRM, Mainstreaming, Synamedia, THEO Technologies and Videon will demo their HESP-ready solutions, covering different components of the video ecosystem, including packaging, CDN, playback and DRM. Participants will be introduced to use cases such as fast channel change, secure high efficiency streaming, HESP scaling over a standard CDN and real-time streaming to any audience size. It is the first time that five Alliance members will physically gather in the same venue since its constitution in 2020.
The HESP Alliance aims to accelerate standardization and large-scale adoption of high efficiency streaming through HESP. Alliance members can license the technology; integrate it into their video packaging and playback solutions; and develop and share HESP extensions to drive further innovation. A verification program for HESP solutions ensures interoperability across packaging, playback and CDN solutions and provides peace of mind for media companies deploying high efficiency streaming services.
HESP can bring sub-second latency live and interactive streaming experiences at scale, ideally suited for use cases such as live sports and betting, e-sports, virtual events, online gaming and e-learning. High efficiency streaming additionally enables operators to bring a leanback TV experience over OTT to their viewers, as HESP can provide for fast channel change, as low as 100ms, in addition to its ultra-low latency capabilities.
