CacheFly and StreamGuys Unveil Groundbreaking Ultra-Low Latency Video Delivery Technology Advancement

Chicago, Illinois – March 11, 2024 –CacheFly, a global leader in content delivery network (CDN) services, in strategic partnership with StreamGuys, a trailblazer in media delivery solutions, announces a transformative breakthrough in streaming technology.

Experience the future of streaming with unrivaled speed and efficiency across all browser platforms, making high-quality, ultra-low latency streaming experiences universally accessible on PC, Linux, Mac, Android, iPad, and iPhone. This new advancement simplifies streaming processes globally for broadcasters and content providers by eliminating the need for dedicated mobile applications.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Synced Streaming Across All Devices:
  • Innovative ultra-low latency video distribution from CacheFly removes the need for specialized mobile apps. Users enjoy synchronized and flawless streaming in less than a second, regardless of device — PC, Linux, Mac, Android, iPad, or iPhone.
  • No more juggling different apps to distribute content to iOS devices. With its integrated technology, CacheFly guarantees a consistent experience on all platforms where customers watch video worldwide.
  1. Under 1-Second Global Live Events:
  • The browser-based video delivery provided with CacheFly’s global CDN is ideal for live streaming. Whether it’s a global event, sports match, or breaking news, viewers experience real-time action without delay or compromising quality.
  • With the capacity to handle over 1 million concurrent viewers simultaneously, CacheFly sets a new standard for scalability and throughput in the CDN industry and for media, entertainment, eLearning, gaming, gambling and streaming companies.
This new streaming protocol is based on WebSockets. Features are:
  • Nearly one second delay between origin and player. Hence the “Low Delay” in the name.
  • Codec-agnostic. Play whatever your end-user platform has: H.264, H.265/HEVC, AV1, VP8, VP9, video, AAC, MP3, Opus audio.
  • ABR real-time support. Switching channels takes just a GOP time and each channel may use its own codec.
  • Simultaneous synchronized playback among multiple browsers and mobile devices.
  • CEA-608/708 closed captions are supported with HTML5 Player SDK.
  • Buffer offset support for decreasing zap time (start latency).
  • Latency tolerance support to handle network glitches.
  • Audio-only Opus streaming on iOS to void audio transcoding from WebRTC
Besides eliminating the need for a separate app for iOS, this technology allows performing synchronized simultaneous playback in multiple player instances, browsers, and devices. This is important for cases like these:
  • One big screen with audio on individual devices.
  • A second screen application.
  • Multiple screens with a single source of sound.
  • Surveillance cameras are shown on the same page.
