Synchronized video

Ultra-low latency video

Less than 3 seconds latency

Low latency is the next chapter in online video and live streaming. Without lag time, users see the content as it happens, not 5, 10, or 30 seconds later. 

Have you ever heard your neighbors celebrate a point while the ball was still miles from the goal on your screen? That’s latency. To truly immerse yourself in live content, latency sucks.

By utilizing state-of-the-art ULL-CMAF technology, Livery can provide so-called glass-to-glass latency (the time it takes for the action to get from the camera lens to the computer or TV screen) of 1-3 seconds using regular Content Distribution Networks (CDN). This offers superior scalability and video quality compared to other low latency solutions, like WebRTC, at lower cost. Plus Livery is end-to-end optimized for low latency, meaning that encoder, CDN and player are all fine-tuned to ensure the lowest possible latency.

Livery lets you see sports faster than any type of traditional terrestrial, cable or satellite television. More importantly, latency this low opens up a variety of opportunities, especially in interactive video.

Great value

Low latency at no additional cost.

We aim to make livestreaming accessible to everyone. We believe that low latency should be standard–not carry a cost penalty or require sacrifices in scalability or picture quality. That’s why we are proud to offer end-to-end live streaming at prices comparable to more traditional, slower, solutions. 

All things considered, Livery offers more flexibility and a lower total cost of ownership to other forms of low latency live streaming, without the compromises.

Here’s how that’s possible:

Livery doesn’t depend on expensive data centers or dedicated cloud infrastructure. We can offer Livery for less by leveraging the efficiencies of the existing distribution infrastructure of the internet. Unlike our main competitors, you truly only pay for what you use.

You can reach your users, wherever in the world they may be, without the big contract commitments or upfront payments that are the norm elsewhere. Livery can offer usage-based pricing at an abnormally low per-user rate (one that would require a substantial upfront payment to reach elsewhere).

The bottom line: even if you’re comparing Livery to inferior (high latency) options, we’re confident we can compete on price. Check our configurator and see for yourself!

Synchronized video

The same frame at the same time

We’ve worked on more than 100 interactive projects and counting. Through experience we’ve learned that while latency is crucial, synchronization often matters even more. That’s why we’ve built an end-to-end solution into Livery that ensures every user sees the same picture at the same time. Regardless of where you are, what device you use, or how fast your internet connection is – there’s no discrepancies, cheating, or getting ahead.

From encoder to player, sync can be added to any Livery stream. We also plan to add full encryption to provide peace of mind for even the most sensitive live streams, where unintended early access to information to the wrong people could mean a press conference ruined, a stock price manipulated, or many bets lost.

easy to start, easy to use

Start the magic in minutes

Sophisticated live streaming used to be complex. You had to learn to use and ensure compatibility between encoders, CDNs, players, user authentication, analytics. It’s a wonder anyone found compatible components to operate effectively.

 

Worry no more–Livery is set up and ready to use in minutes.  All of Livery’s robust settings and features are managed from a single, universally accessible web interface. This intuitive dashboard comes with everything you need to prepare, produce, analyze, and monetize your interactive video.

Unlike other solutions, with Livery you truly only pay for what you use. No fixed license, hidden fees, mandatory service contracts, or obscene pay-as-you-go pricing until you finally give in to year-long commitments. It’s simple, it’s end to end, it’s easy to start – and if, for whatever reason you stop streaming, it’s just as easy to stop.

Architecture

Ultra-low latency video
at scale

Livery is an end-to-end solution built from the ground up to ensure every step in the video chain is optimized to deliver ultra-low latency video at scale. It is the first platform that combines the ULL-CMAF (Ultra Low Latency) protocol with synchronized and interactive video experiences at no additional cost when compared to regular latency streaming. 

As a result, Livery offers you more flexibility, control, and features for truly interactive livestreaming across iOS, Android and Web apps.

The architecture  of livery

Global & Scalable

Unlike WebRTC, Livery is ready to reach millions in seconds

ready to reach millions

Large, larger, largest. We scale to the max, together with your ambition.

Livery is based on ULL-CMAF and we’ve made sure it runs perfectly on regular CDN infrastructure. This means that Livery can offer quality and consistency around the world, backed by trusted partners like Akamai. Due to our scale, we are able to offer our customers rates that are more competitive than regular latency CDN solutions.

Livery is not only substantially more affordable than its next closest competitor, it can scale to volumes beyond anything WebRTC can reach. In fact, due to the edge network it runs on, the more users Livery has, the better data is distributed and cache is spread. Our streams get stronger with size. Competing solutions suffer as audiences explode; Livery thrives.

Scalable and reliable

Livery is powered by the world’s most established and powerful CDN Akamai, which offers:

  • Total traffic capacity of over 100 terabits/second
  • Peak concurrent live streaming capacity of over 25M (2019 Cricket World Cup)
  • 85% of the internet’s users are within a single “network hop” of an Akamai CDN server

HARDWARE & CLOUD

Livery Encoder

The Livery encoder provides reliable encoder technology. It is built from the ground up to provide the highest video quality with the lowest possible latency, all in perfect sync. Based on your needs Livery can provide an on-prem encoder or a cloud encoder–both provide full support for scaling, transcoding, transmuxing, and adaptive bitrates (ABR).

ULL- CMAF

Low latency with the use of traditional infrastructure

Low latency with the use of traditional infrastructure Chunked CMAF is cost effective, has no scaling limitations, and is compatible with all major CDNs.  You can also protect your video by applying any of the common encryption standards.

With traditional HLS & Dash, the encoder has to encode a full segment worth of video before it can be uploaded to the CDN. Next, the CDN delivery adds hundreds of milliseconds on top. Finally, the video player needs another couple hundred milliseconds or so to download the segment. These milliseconds add up.

Instead, Livery decouples the segment size from the latency, chopping the video into even smaller pieces called chunks. Instead of pushing entire segments, Livery pushes chunks to the end users, lowering the player’s overall latency and startup time.

What to use?

Livery's ULL-CMAF vs WebRTC

Cost

ULL-CMAF is based on the known video delivery protocols and does not require a special server setup. The price for ultra-low-latency video is similar to the VOD price points, making it about 4-8X cheaper than WebRTC. Livery works with a fixed global price point per GB.

Latency

ULL-CMAF is able to achieve a glass-to-glass latency of 1-3 seconds, depending on the location, accommodating 90% of all low latency use cases. WebRTC is a better fit for use-cases where a sub-second latency is required, like video conferencing solutions such as Skype or Zoom.

SCALABILITY

ULL-CMAF is designed as a “one-to-many” solution, able to scale to millions of concurrent users and more than capable of handling spiky traffic behavior.

Flexibility

ULL-CMAF is based on the known video delivery protocols DASH and HLS, which means that video features used for VOD content, like DRM or advertisement insertion, can be adopted to your ULL-CMAF live stream.

REAL-TIME INSIGHTS

Detailed analytics

Analytical data is crucial when you want to deliver a high-end video experience. Livery collects data from 3 sources: the encoder, CDN, and player SDKs. All data is collected in a Redshift database and powers Livery’s real-time dashboards. Livery provides an in-depth understanding of your audience’s viewing behavior, helping you make real-time decisions and allowing our engineers to quickly provide support whenever and wherever they’re needed.
