Red Bee Media has claimed to have reached record low latency of 3.5 seconds on its live over-the-top demo feed at NAB – faster than traditional broadcasting feeds.
Red Bee is showcasing its Managed OTT Offering at the show and said it achieved the low-latency speeds on its live OTT feed using cloud-based, open source standard technology and an open internet connection.
The company is transmitting a live camera feed from the NAB trade show floor to its European cloud via the web using the open standard SRT transport protocol.
The live signal is then processed by the Red Bee Media Channel Store and pushed back to Las Vegas across the Content Delivery Network using the open and low latency Chunked CMAF standard.
At the start of NAB Red Bee said it showcased latency at around 10 seconds, but it has since brought the speed down to as low as 3.5 seconds, hailing the achievement as a “true milestone” for the company and its Managed OTT Services offering.
“We are very proud to have achieved latency this low, using only open standard technology and it really shows the strength of our team and our offering,” said Steve Russell, Head of OTT and Media Management at Red Bee Media.
“We can now deliver video to OTT faster than traditional television. We are determined to drive OTT as a premium viewing experience.”
