THEOlive - The first HTTP-based Real-Time video API at Scale

We have questioned our technology partners, clients and peers about their greatest video and streaming challenges and live low latency at scale was seen as the number one priority. Low latency solutions are in high demand, especially for online betting, auctioning, live sports, gaming, e-learning and virtual events, as it requires interactivity. Sub-second latency, or real-time streaming, is therefore a must. 

But mastering real-time streaming at scale is not easy. While there is a trend in the industry to lower latency, many HTTP-based streaming solutions still bring latencies of multiple seconds. Non-HTTP-based streaming solutions can bring sub-second latency, but are complex and expensive to scale. That’s where THEO steps in. 

We’re excited to announce that we’re launching THEOlive, the first HTTP-based real-time streaming solution at scale. Leveraging the High Efficiency Streaming Protocol (HESP), it creates cost-efficient real-time and interactive live video experiences to any number of viewers.
