Founded by THEO Technologies and Synamedia, this collaborative community of industry leaders strives to improve the quality of experience of online viewers. The High Efficiency Stream Protocol (HESP) enables sub-second end-to-end latency, as low as 400ms.

This technological collaboration provides seamless integration of live captions and subtitles in THEOplayer, serving hundreds of Pay TV and OTT service providers, broadcasters, and publishers worldwide.

SyncWords is extending this valuable partnership by joining the HESP Alliance . An important HESP use case is sub-second latency live streaming, while scaling over standard CDNs. This means SyncWords can provide live captions and translations, with real-presence effect, immersive UX-advanced experience, easy language navigation, switching, etc. All this, in real-time, through reliable infrastructure, with high video quality at scale globally, and professionally handled flash crowds.
