Ultra low latency

NexPlayer understands that users demand live content immediately. Unlike linear TV (traditional broadcasting) which normally has a latency of between 3 and 5 seconds, OTT streams’ latency generally falls between 30 seconds and a minute. This is simply unacceptable. NexPlayer is able to provide ultra low latency with sub 3-seconds latency across all OTT devices.

With NexPlayer’s proprietary low latency technology, we are able to provide you with ultra low latency using both HLS & DASH streaming, 无论设备, so that your users can experience sports, news, e-commerce, lectures and more, live.


Stream High Quality Content in

In collaboration with AWS Elemental and Videon, NexPlayer is able to produce sub 3-seconds ultra low latency in both HLS & DASH streams with universal Widevine DRM. This is done by using CMAF Low Latency Chunks (LLC) and optimizing the player at a local level by managing buffering and chunk sizes using NexPlayer’s proprietary streaming algorithm.

As much as 50% of the latency occurs at the local player level. By optimizing the local player, NexPlayer’s ultra low latency algorithm is able to significantly reduce latencies and provide stable and high quality video content.

Why choose nexplayer for streaming video?

Automatically Adjust Video Quality

Unlike outdated technologies such as RTP, RTSP, and WebRTC which are unsuitable for mobile delivery since they do not support adaptive bitrate streaming (ABR), NexPlayer uses its very own proprietary ABR technology to automatically adjust the resolution, based on users’ network conditions and the available bandwidth. This ensures minimal buffering and rapid start times, regardless of the network connection strength, and is supported by open standards to deliver content to viewers immediately.
