Mission, Vision, Overall description of product / company
Viblast is an innovator operating in the online video industry that improves on last-mile delivery, stream quality and playback. The company’s software technology steps on WebRTC and HTML5 and solves complex problems such as client-assisted delivery and HLS & DASH playback in HTML5 without the use of plugins.
Its flagship product Viblast PDN (short from peer-assisted delivery network) is the winner of Best Innovation 2014 at WebRTC Global Summit 2014. It optimizes video delivery to large numbers of simultaneous viewers through patent-pending peer-assisted technology. It scales real-time, improves QoE parameters and relieves last-mile video traffic congestion while reducing reliance on costly streaming infrastructure.
Targeted at broadcasters and content providers, Viblast PDN enables the delivery of live and on-demand high-definition video to any device and platform in a massively scalable and cost-effective way, achieving bandwidth savings of up to 70%. The technology seamlessly complements existing delivery solutions (CDN/in-house deployments).
Viblast Player is the company’s solution to the challenge of HLS & MPEG-DASH playback in HTML5 plugin-free. It is one of very few available technologies able to play adaptive bitrate (ABR) streams without Flash in HTML5. Besides ABR playback of live and on-demand content, it handles encrypted HLS and DRM-protected DASH streams.
Viblast is especially well-timed with the introduction of 4K, which will generate substantial traffic when adopted on a mass scale.
