Low Latency Streaming is an advanced live streaming solution designed for live content providers who require ultra-low latency video streaming. By leveraging and optimizing WebRTC, CDNetworks Low Latency Streaming reduces live streaming latencies to below 500 milliseconds, allowing viewers to experience live video content in real-time. Meanwhile, the global content delivery network resources of CDNetworks make large-scale WebRTC streaming a reality without buffering.
WebRTC is the most popular streaming protocol for peer-to-peer communications. It uses UDP as the transport layer protocol and has a significantly lower transmission latency than traditional streaming technology protocols. Built on WebRTC, CDNetworks’ Low Latency Streaming is a media delivery solution that slashes live streaming and glass-to-glass video latencies to under 500 milliseconds. Offering ultra-fast streaming content delivery improves interactivity between live streamers and viewers to create lightning-fast, high-quality, and reliable end-user experiences.
CDNetworks’ Low Latency Streaming is uniquely positioned to support live streaming at a global scale. CDNetworks owns over 200,000 deployed servers, more than 2,800 PoPs, and 400+ edge computing PoPs in over 70 countries and regions, enabling real-time, high-quality live stream viewing for a large number of people. Our globally distributed resources can easily manage massive content streams concurrently and ensure that all streams are delivered to users regardless of content size, user location, and viewing device, provided enough bandwidth is available.
CDNetworks’ products reduce costs in many ways. For example, WebRTC is natively supported by mainstream browsers. CDNetworks provides a free SDK for iOS and Android terminals. This allows you to integrate our products without having to incur additional research and development. In addition, CDNetworks’ SDK supports unencrypted transmission during low-latency streaming to lower transmission consumption dramatically while guaranteeing security without any tradeoffs.
By optimizing and upgrading the standard WebRTC technology, CDNetworks’ Low Latency Streaming integrates seamlessly with the CDN platform and inherits all media processing features. Since its launch, CDNetworks has provided WebRTC streaming services to live content providers in e-commerce, online education, sports, and many other industries. With our rich customer experience and robust technology, we guarantee a secure and reliable service that will meet customer demands and take your business further.
As more and more sports events migrate to OTT platforms, latency and live interaction remain clear challenges for the viewing format. One study estimates that nearly 15 million viewers of soccer (football) games missed goals due to the latencies of the live-action broadcasts they were watching.
CDNetworks Low Latency Streaming effectively solves this issue by reducing streaming latencies to mere milliseconds, enhancing viewing experiences.
Like Media Acceleration Live Broadcast, CDNetworks’ Low Latency Streaming delivers streaming content to end users worldwide using our globally distributed content delivery network. However, Low Latency Streaming innovatively supports WebRTC for both stream pushing and pulling. We also support RTC for stream pushing.
CDNetworks provides more than standard WebRTC. Our WebRTC supports H.265 and B frame passthrough for video, and AAC passthrough for audio. This level of support is not available in standard WebRTC streaming. By utilizing our Low Latency Streaming, there are no additional transcoding costs involved and save time on transcoding when delivering your original stream with H.265, B frames, and AAC to your audience.
