How it works

Sye Service Capabilities

Ultra-low configurable latency

Sye Streaming Service solves the OTT latency issue where traditional streaming doesn’t cut it. Latency is always fixed, but configurable – set your latency to harmonize with the linear broadcast or set it to 3 seconds and be faster than TV.

Perfect synchronization across devices

With Sye Streaming Service you can synchronize your streams across all devices for the whole audience, with opportunity for multi-camera applications – giving your audience a high-quality, personalized and social broadcast experience.

Cloud-based platform

Sye Streaming Service is deployed on top of Microsoft Azure, an open and flexible cloud platform that is highly scalable, redundant and secure. With support from more than 54 Azure regions, Sye Streaming Service is ready to handle any flash crowds.

Sye Streaming Protocol

Sye Streaming Service is built around a resilient protocol crafted from the ground up. Optimized for live streaming, the Sye Streaming Protocol has minimum overhead and maximum network utilization if compared to traditional OTT streaming solutions, and maintains more than 40% higher video quality compared to file-based solutions. Based on UDP, it is insensitive to throughput degradation from RTT – making distance irrelevant. A perfect match for cloud streaming.

Stateful ABR

Sye Streaming Service includes a refined adaptive bitrate technology that is “state-aware” of the client’s available bandwidth. This stateful ABR continuously keeps track of each client’s available bandwidth, providing the highest possible ABR profile at any given time. As a result, Sye Streaming Service improves the customer experience in two ways – it maintains the highest possible picture quality longer and it provides TV-like instant channel changes.

Client SDK

The Sye Client is provided as an SDK – it handles networking, decryption, decoding, as well as rendering of the video streams. A well-defined set of cross-platform APIs are available for easy integration. The Sye client SDK supports AVC, HEVC and AAC codecs, closed captioning, and pass-through of ID3 tags. Supported platforms are iOS, Android and desktop Web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

QoE Reporting

Each streaming function reports native quality metrics. Data is gathered from ingest functions, streaming functions, and all the way from the client. The metric reports are extensive and include ABR levels, viewed channels, start time, duration, active streaming node, and network quality metrics – among others, packet loss, RTT and bandwidth.

Content Encryption

Sye Streaming Service includes content encryption based on the Common Encryption Scheme (CENC) using 128-bit keys and the AES algorithm in CBC mode. The streams are individually encrypted during ingest and decrypted in the Sye client CDM.

End-to-end Monitoring

Sye Streaming Service includes monitoring of alarms, log definitions and metrics, enabling the operator to get a complete and up-to-date view of the service at any given time.

Other Features

Sye Streaming Service also includes geolocation lookup and advanced load balancing, making sure that all clients are directed to the most beneficial playout location, to guarantee the best possible user experience.

Sye Additional Services

Synchronized Metadata

The Sye Streaming Service includes an endpoint for ingestion of metadata. Metadata notification messages are streamed through a protected data channel within Sye Streaming Protocol and are synchronized with the audio and video. The synchronized metadata feature enables decoupling of metadata and video, giving app developers new tools to create feature- and data-rich user experiences. It is no longer necessary to burn your metadata into the video – you can present graphics, gauges and numbers as overlays and provide a dynamic view that lets your users select what they are interested in. The potential is limitless: from leaderboards, UX graphics, tickers and social media integrations to interactive applications such as trivia apps, voting, polling, quizzes, betting and more. And remember, it is all in sync.

Sye-On-Prem

Sye On-Prem is an option for maintaining ultra-low latency and sync from the source all the way up to the cloud where the Sye Streaming Service resides. Depending on configurations this streaming contribution can sustain packet-loss up to 15%.  Sye On-Prem is a software package made to be installed on a PC-platform close to a transcoder, i.e. without packet-loss between the transcoder and the Sye On-Prem installation. Contact us to learn more about Sye On-Prem.
