Anevia Partners with Viaccess-Orca for Ultra-Low Latency Live Streaming

Anevia, a provider of OTT and IPTV software solutions, partnered with Viaccess-Orca to provide audiences with an ultra-low latency live streaming solution at this year’s IBC.

The collaboration saw Anevia provide the encoder side of the solution, while Viaccess-Orca, a leading global solutions provider of OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, part of the Orange Group, will be supplying the secure video player.

The combination of Anevia and Viaccess-Orca software has been optimised and integrated to reduce latency and allow streaming at as close to real time as possible. The solution, driven by user frustrations at watching live broadcast such as sporting events on a slight delay, will allow audiences to live stream everything with sub-second delay. This is in stark contrast to the up to eight-second broadcast standard delay and the between 30 to 60 seconds with other traditional OTT systems.

Thanks to this partnership, viewers will be able to keep latency low while live streaming from any device and watch events before receiving related tweets from their friends.

Discussing the collaboration, Damien Lucas Anevia CTO and Co-Founder said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Viaccess-Orca on this solution. It is a great opportunity to unite our products and provide customers with a unique solution to their streaming problems.

“The solution will be available for anybody wanting to reduce latency when streaming which will ultimately enhance their overall live viewing experience.”

“Video ecosystems are technically more and more complex; reducing playback delay on OTT devices greatly improves end-user experience; it can only be offered through a joint work between back-end and front-end top-expert providers, said Chem Assayag, EVP Marketing and Sales at Viaccess-Orca. This is what is achieved through our cooperation with Anevia.”
