Teradek Launches ART: The Lowest Latency Streaming Protocol Over The Internet

  • Teradek designs and manufactures high-performance video solutions for broadcast, cine, medical, and general imaging applications.

IRVINE, Calif. — Teradek recently launched ART: a new streaming protocol that delivers secure, ultra-low latency (ULL) audio and video over the public internet. With latency clocking in at sub-100 milliseconds over a WAN – despite +5% packet error rates – ART breaks new ground and raises expectations for ultra-fast live video delivery.

ART was created to address two of the most persistent problems with point-to-point video over the public internet: latency and packet loss. What sets ART apart is that it utilizes Joint Source-Channel Coding (JSCC) to evaluate video content and network characteristics simultaneously: optimizing for both in one step. The result is a highly-resilient, blazing-fast video stream in even the most challenging network conditions.

The protocol was jointly-developed by Teradek and Amimon using the same zero-delay technology behind Teradek’s Emmy and Academy Award-winning Bolt wireless video system.

“ART is without a doubt the most impressive video transport protocol available today,” remarked Michael Gailing, Teradek’s General Manager of Live Production. “No other protocol can deliver broadcast-quality, real-time performance over a WAN like it.”

With end-to-end AES-256 encryption, easy firewall traversal, and no re-transmission delays, ART is trailblazing a new standard for broadcast, live event, and remote monitoring needs.

Teradek will be showcasing ART for the first time in Europe at IBC 2022 from September 9-12. Watch an exclusive demo live at IBC 2022.
