HOVSP

HOVSP was developed by Zorachka as part of the Verona technology stack.It's similar to HLS and MPEG-DASH, but is distinguished by its extremely low latency of live video, zero overhead and easy integration into any ecosystem.
Benefits
Low overhead
  • Caching of metadata frames with subsequent full recovery in demuxer
  • Output stream that's smaller in size than the original raw data
Fast startup
  • No wait for the nearest key frame
  • No additional load on the server CPU
Streaming efficiency
  • Hybrid protocol combining chunking and flow
  • Does not need random access; uses segmented stream representation for efficiency
Primitive blocks
  • Optimized caching via the use of primitive blocks and removal of duplicate metadata storage
On-the-fly modifications
  • Tracks substitution on the fly with no need to reconnect
Self-described segmentation
  • Data blocks cognizant of adjacent segments
  • Fault tolerance and recovery mechanics
Time-bound metadata
  • Any extra metadata is tied to the presentation timestamp (PTS), which allows for its synchronization with video and audio tracks
Adaptive quality
  • Full support for dynamic bitrates with smooth automatic switching
Efficient muxing and demuxing
  • Minimal usage of CPU cycles to package and decompress data
  • GPU-based decoder
Bandwidth benchmarks
HOVSP reduces video stream size by up to 60% without loss of quality. The protocol allows for the instant use of video analytics on any device; works on iOS, Android and Web (compatible with HTML5).
