HESP Alliance Welcomes MediaMelon Membership

The HESP Alliance today announced that MediaMelon, provider of SmartSight streaming intelligence solutions, has joined the HESP Alliance. MediaMelon will offer its proven SmartSight analytics and streaming business improvement tools to extend the marketplace for high efficiency streaming services and will participate in activities shaping the future of scalable sub-second latency live streaming through the High-Efficiency Streaming Protocol (“HESP”).

The MediaMelon SmartSight solution now can provide tools for systematic improvement of high efficiency streaming experiences, including new latency dashboards for HESP services, in conjunction with other SmartSight streaming intelligence functionality. The SmartSight SDK has been integrated and tested in combination with HESP compatible video players and is a straightforward deployment option for media companies struggling with analysis of latency and channel change time variation across device types, delivery networks and stream configurations.

Alliance members can license the technology; integrate it into their video packaging and playback solutions; and develop and share HESP extensions to drive further innovation. A verification program for HESP solutions ensures interoperability across packaging, playback and CDN solutions and provides peace of mind for media companies deploying high efficiency streaming services.
