Streamworks International, a global specialist in live video over IP, has partnered with Immersive Media, a provider of 360º and full spherical, interactive video experiences. Under the new partnership, Streamworks will provide back-end encoding and delivery for Immersive Media’s front-end streaming of various 360º live video projects, which includes music concerts and other live events.
By working with Immersive Media on this partnership, Streamworks will encode Immersive’s live 360º video using the company’s proprietary compression technology, enabling Immersive’s work to be viewed on any device, anywhere. This technology will provide a better user experience for viewers, with Streamworks delivering Immersive’s 360º live video using less bandwidth, consequently minimising latency and buffering. In turn, Streamworks’ technology, which optimises Immersive’s breakthrough video expertise, will now give the company a “missing link” technology with an efficient, cost-cutting delivery system.
