Response time.

Videon, as an AWS Elemental technology partner, is now enabling worldwide video distribution in under four seconds. This refers to the total time difference between video capture at the camera and playback on a screen such as a TV, phone, or tablet, also known as glass-to-glass latency.

The key to driving this latency, or video delay, lower is a fully integrated video pipeline. Thanks to the interoperability between Videon’s encoders and Amazon Web Services, this pipeline is more streamlined than ever before.

The process starts with a video signal that is encoded by a Videon Shavano encoder and sent directly to AWS Elemental MediaStore via HLS. From MediaStore, the video feed moves to Amazon CloudFront, the content delivery network (or CDN), for playback on a device like a phone or computer.

In our latency test video, we see this process take less than four seconds from source to screen, thanks to the integrated pipeline. When we tested this with other encoders using a different CDN, this glass-to-glass latency ballooned to 30 seconds or more, while also being highly variable.

Videon will demonstrate its entire line of live streaming encoding solutions, including Shavano, a 4K HEVC/H.264 encoder, during IBC 2018 from September 14th to 18th in Amsterdam at the RAI. Arrange a meet up with the Techex team and get product demonstrations with Videon’s team at booth 9.LP9.

About Shavano

Shavano is Videon’s 4K H.264/HEVC video encoder which allows creators to stream in native 4K to provide the highest quality video to viewers. Using HEVC compression, Shavano allows 4K video streaming on consumer grade internet, no special equipment required! At under $2k, there is now an affordable encoder that makes 4K video possible.

What They Say

  • Working with video over IP, it isn’t very long before you find yourself working with Techex. They are the Swiss Army knife you need in your toolbox.
    Tony MundaySky
  • I have had the pleasure of working with Techex on several complex broadcast projects over a number of years. In a world where over promising and under delivering is the norm, this is a breath of fresh air. When the going gets tough in a project as it inevitably does at some stage, Techex always pulls out the stops.
