CDNetworks announced a new WebRTC-based low latency streaming solution that features high compatibility and ultra-fast transmission speed, cutting the latency to less than 500 milliseconds.

The new solution is built on the revolutionary benefits of the most popular peer-to-peer communications protocol – Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) – to achieve almost instant streaming delivery while breaking its limitations to improve the audio and video quality and supportability. It also transforms the way global audiences experience live shows and empowers content producers in all sectors to create highly immersive and interactive real-time videos at scale.

Highlights of CDNetworks’ Low Latency Streaming:

- CDNetworks optimizes standard WebRTC and upgrades traditional CDN network architecture to cut latency to below 500ms eliminating the multi-second latency problems that used to hinder the innovation and business possibility for companies that rely on live streaming content.

- Thanks to its powerful distribution capability made possible by over 2800 PoPs (Points of Presence) across the globe, CDNetworks’ media platform ensures high compatibility and supports the whole set of traditional live streaming features including transcoding, recording, and watermarking.

- Multi-platform SDKs (Software Development Kits) support for stream pulling makes the deployment of the solution cheaper and easier than ever. CDNetworks provides SDKs for Android, IOS and H5 to cater to the diverse needs of end users. CDNetworks also provides a proxy version SDK that allows users to use their own players or third-party players to deliver a time-synchronized streaming experience without the extra need for any modifications.

“Our 20 years of expertise in media acceleration technologies has culminated in the launch of this new solution which is integrated with a plethora of upgrades to unlock the potential of WebRTC protocol. We optimized the standard WebRTC by adding the support for AAC, H.265, and B frame to further slash latency and ensure non-disruptive playback. We have solved the problem of higher handshake times and transmission bandwidth caused by DTLS encryption, and provided CDNetworks’ proprietary security strategies that reduce transmission consumption and latency, meaning that the audience can enjoy a lightning-fast, secure, and super reliable viewing experience,” said Doyle Deng, Head of Product Management of CDNetworks.

“The launch of CDNetworks’ Low Latency Streaming solution, which has already been adopted by numerous industry players in entertainment, gaming, sports, online education and e-commerce to bring interactivity at scale, marks another breakthrough for the media delivery technology. We enable the media content to be delivered to the devices of end users at unparalleled speed anytime, anywhere,” Deng added.

With this new milestone, CDNetworks will continue to explore the technology that enables interactive live streaming to achieve lower latency and higher reliability. Leveraging its global resources and streaming distribution technology, CDNetworks is also committed to enhancing the stability and security of media acceleration technologies for VoD services. Backed by its innovations in both live streaming and VoD, CDNetworks aims to bring next-generation media solutions to companies worldwide.
