Transcodes in the cloud in an instant
Net Insight announces a three seconds end-to-end latency, one-click streaming workflow inclusive of transcoding together with Media Excel and Microsoft Azure.
Net Insight’s Sye Streaming Service combines “ultra-low latency and perfect sync, bringing a TV-like experience to the OTT audience.” Deployed on top of Microsoft Azure, Sye Streaming Service is scalable to more than hundreds of thousands of viewers, and is claimed aperfect fit for live trivia, live sports, or auctions among others.
“With this new partnership, Sye Streaming Service will deliver a one-click service that makes it easy to connect, transcode and stream,” says Filippa Hasselström, VP Streaming Solutions at Net Insight. “As a result, the customer onboarding is highly improved, making it quick and effortless, enabling any customer to be up and streaming in minutes.”
The service will be available in Q2.
Media Excel’s HERO Cloud virtual transcoding software solution is hosted on Azure, integrated with Sye. “HERO Cloud, with Sye Connect and Sye Streaming Service, enables a full end-to-end, one-click service ready to ingest, transcode and stream content from any location to viewers across the globe, all under 3 seconds,” says Hasselström.
“The versatility of our HERO Cloud platform enables a fully virtual ultra-low latency streaming workflow, both in a pure cloud environment and in a hybrid cloud architecture such as Microsoft Azure Stack and Azure,” says Nikos Kyriopoulos, VP Product and Business Development at Media Excel.
The integration between the two solutions is enabled with Azure Kubernetes Services.
The relationship will also enable a new Sye Software-as-a-Service, supporting one-click provisioning of an entire Syestreaming cluster and a Media Excel HERO Cloud transcoder. This new SaaS will enable anyone to start operating or managing their own live streaming service, including transcoding. The new SaaS will also support hybrid cloud environments through Azure Stack, suitable for the Telco vertical. It will be available in Q2.
“With this new offering we will not only enhance our existing Sye Streaming Service but we will also – together with Media Excel and Microsoft Azure – enable a complete end-to-end live streaming offering, especially suitable for a hybrid cloud-Telco environment,” Hasselström, VP.
