Announcement: THEO's HESP is now an IETF Specification
by THEO Technologies on June 8, 2021
THEO's High-Efficiency Streaming Protocol (HESP) has been made available as a draft informational via the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). This significant milestone was achieved through works done by the HESP Alliance working groups, essentially describing the first version of …
High Efficiency Streaming Protocol (HESP): Reducing Bandwidth Consumption by up to 20%
by THEOplayer on May 18, 2020
We are streaming more and higher quality video. Overall, time spent in viewing streaming video has increased rapidly to between 60 and 100 minutes per person per day in 2019. Also, video quality is going up as we are increasingly streaming HD and 4K content. Hence, bandwidth is an eve …

HESP: Comparing Zapping Times
by THEOplayer on September 26, 2019
With the introduction of digital television, zapping between different channels becomes noticeable. Where zapping between channels on an analogue television took only a few milliseconds, switching between digital channels could add up to a few seconds. Zapping times have been improved …
High Efficiency Streaming Protocol : Bandwidth Usage
by Steven Tielemans on September 5, 2019
We compared the streaming bandwidth between the HESP and CMAF-CTE streams from the test setup. Bandwidths were measured when delivered to the client by measuring the total amount of data transfered over a period of 10 minutes for a live channel distributing a few different types of co …
High Efficiency Streaming Protocol : End-to-end latency compared
by Steven Tielemans on September 4, 2019
In order to compare latency achievements of the HESP protocol, we designed a test scenario where HESP is compared with CMAF-CTE, using the same encoding settings, and a selected set of chunk and segment sizes for the CMAF setup (meaning a changing GOP size).
What is the High Efficiency Streaming Protocol (HESP) and why does the video industry need it?
by Steven Tielemans on August 28, 2019
The media industry is constantly pushing to innovate in order to improve viewer experience in an attempt to attract and tie customers to their service. This is however hampered by technical hurdles like high- latency, mind boggling video start times and bandwidth constraints. With the …
