We're excited to share that's Real-time Streaming has won the Best in Media APIs category at the 2022 API Awards. With, we provide this WebRTC-based real-time streaming service to enable sub-second latency, broadcast-quality color and sound, global scale, and end-to-end encryption — all with native support for web browsers and Internet-enabled devices.

Real-time Streaming with Sub-second Latency

Latency is the time it takes for a live stream to get from the point of capture such as live feed from a video camera to the device where the stream is being viewed. Latency is important whenever this glass-to-glass video feed is time-sensitive and viewers must receive the content in a short and predictable amount of time.

Real-time video streaming is especially important for live events, online auctions, AR/VR virtual worlds, sports, gaming, remote production, live-streaming and other scenarios where time-to-delivery is mission critical in creating live human interaction. These experiences must be less than 1 second from the source to the viewer to be effective. For creating 2-way interactivity the target is even faster at 100-500 milliseconds to support a full round-trip.

With Real-time Streaming you are in control of the experience for your audience. You can broadcast to massive audiences with immersive and interactive applications that rival the real world. The Streaming APIs have integrations for OBS, Unreal Engine, and Client SDKs to support whatever platforms you want to build. Best in Media APIs Award
