Ultra-low latency video

Less than 3 seconds latency

Low latency is the next chapter in online video and live streaming. Simply put, it lets users see the content as it happens, not 30 seconds later. Ever heard your neighbours celebrate a point while the ball was still miles from the goal on your screen? That’s latency, and for live content, latency sucks.

By utilising state-of-the-art ULL-CMAF technology, Livery can provide so-called glass to glass latency of 1-3 seconds using regular Content Distribution Networks (CDN). This offers superior scalability and quality compared to other low latency solutions like WebRTC, at lower cost. Plus Livery is end-to-end optimised for low latency, meaning that encoder, CDN and player are all fine-tuned for the lowest possible latency.

So this 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 live streaming accessible to everyone and we believe that low latency should 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 no additional cost compared to any traditional, high latency form of professional streaming. This also means Livery offers more flexibility and lower total cost of ownership to other forms of low latency live streaming, without the compromises.

We can offer Livery for less by using standards that are designed to utilize the existing, very efficient distribution infrastructure of the internet. Unlike WebRTC for instance, Livery doesn’t depend on expensive data centers or dedicated cloud infrastructure – you truly only pay for what you use, wherever in the world your users may be, without any big commitments or upfronts which are the norm elsewhere. And because of the large volume of traffic Livery generates, we are able to offer usage based pricing at a price that requires substantial upfront commitments elsewhere. So even if you’re comparing Livery to high latency options, we’re confident we can give you a good deal. 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 while latency is crucial, synchronisation often matters even more. That’s why we’ve built an end-to-end solution into Livery than ensures every user sees the same picture at the same time. Regardless of where you are, what device type you use or how fast you internet connection is – there’s no cheating, no getting ahead.
From encoder to player, sync can be added to any Livery stream, and soon we’ll add full encryption to provide ease of mind for even the most sensitive live streams, where early access to information for the wrong people could mean a press conference ruined, a stock prize manipulated or many bets lost.

easy to start, easy to use

Start the magic in minutes

Sophisticated live streaming used to be complex. Encoders, CDNs, players, user authentication, analytics – how could anyone be sure the components they picked are a match made in heaven? Worry no more – Livery is set up in minutes, all settings and features are managed from a single, universally accessible web interface and it comes with everything you need to prepare, produce, analyze and monetize your interactive video.

And 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 make 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 built from the ground up and offered as an end-to-end solution 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 compared to regular latency streaming. 

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

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 partners like Akamai. And due to our scale, we are able to offer our customers rates that are more competitive than regular latency CDN solutions.

And Livery is not only substantially more affordable, 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. Whereas competing solutions suffer once 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 terabit/second
  • Peak concurrent live streaming capacity of over 25M (2019 Cricked World Cup)
  • 85% of 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. Our encoder 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).

HARDWARE ENCODER

  • Optimized for low latency streaming via ULL-CMAF
  • Multi Bitrate output up to 4k 50fps
  • H.264, H265, VP9 Compression
  • Online management portal
  • Public API
  • Build-in capture card SDI and/or HDMI
  •  Full redundant operations and fallback with a smooth transition between encoders (requires 2 encoders

ULL- CMAF

Low latency with the use of traditional infrastructure

Chunked CMAF is cost effective, has no scaling limitations, and is compatible with all major CDN’s.  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 the segment can be uploaded to the CDN. The CDN delivery adds additional hundreds milliseconds. Finally, the video player needs another couple hundred milliseconds or so to download the segment.

Instead, Livery decouples the segment size from the latency, chopping the video into even smaller pieces called chunks. Instead of pushing 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 know 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 like Skype or Zoom.

SCALABILTY

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 know video delivery protocols DASH and HLS, which means that know 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 delivery a high-end video experience. Livery collects data from 3 sources: encoder, CDN, and player SDK’s.
