The HESP Alliance brings together streaming video vendors and media companies to standardize, advance, promote and commercialise the High Efficiency Streaming Protocol (HESP), a video streaming protocol that provides superior quality of experience at reduced cost. 

In this webinar HESP will be compared to other streaming protocols in terms of latency, bandwidth, scalability, zapping time and adaptive bitrate (ABR) functionality. Examples will be given, and the discussion navigates how HESP delivers true broadcast like video streaming experiences.  

Additionally, the HESP Alliance objectives and governance principles will be highlighted, and it will be clarified how members can benefit from and contribute to the HESP Alliance. The webinar will further focus on the first HESP solutions which will be brought to market and a timeline for proof of concepts will be shared, for operators, broadcasters and OTT service providers that would like to experience the HESP benefits first hand.
