RECORD BREAKING RESPONSE TIMES – FASTER AND MORE VERSATILE THAN INDUSTRY NORM
10X FASTEST CHANNEL CHANGE SPEED
TV Channel Change speeds have plagued the industry for too long. Subscribers want ultra fast, reactive TV content instantaneously. Avoid subscriber frustration and eradicate the time lag with Qarva’s powerful FastSwitch technology. Qarva’s proven acceleration solution significantly improves the industry ‘Zap Time’ norm by a factor of 10 from 2-5 seconds to just 0.2-0.5 seconds. Combined with powerful Packet Loss Recovery technology to stop content from blocking or freezing, the Quality of Experience (QoE) and Quality of Service (QoS) dramatically increases for subscribers and minimises churn.
LONG RANGE LIVE TV STREAMING WITH LOCAL INTERNET BANDWIDTH
Don’t want subscribers to experience a 20-40 second time delay on poor quality live TV streaming? Then cut out the need for a Content Delivery Network (CDN) and utilise the subscribers’ local internet connections to deliver HD quality content over long range at a speed of 32 Mb/s with Qarva’s unique MultiPipe OTT Streaming technology. Capitalising on the TCP/IP protocol, the MultiPipe OTT solution uses local internet bandwidth and connections to worldwide multiple streaming servers to receive and aggregate data so subscribers no longer suffer with low quality content and slow buffering and partners don’t get hit with high CDN costs.
