2019: A Year in Review
by THEOplayer on December 19, 2019
It's been a year filled with innovation, collaboration, development and accolades for THEO Technologies in 2019. Here are just some of this years highlights:
High Efficiency Streaming Protocol (HESP)
In April 2019 at the NAB show in Las Vegas, THEO Technologies introduced HESP. With the HESP, a massive leap forward in video streaming is made possible. The new HTTP protocol enables a 20% bandwidth cost reduction at the same quality and interactive user experience with sub-second low latency. HLS and DASH still introduce intrusive and noticeable delays between switching channels, but with HESP zapping times are drastically reduced. These improvements allow you to push the viewer experience and engagement to the next level.
