- Customer Tests Demonstrate that the Giraffic Video Acceleration Cloud is Accelerating and Offloading 65-80% of Customer’s Video, Eliminating End-Users’ Re-Buffering Pauses and Reducing Bandwidth Costs Dramatically -
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL – JUNE xx, 2011 – Giraffic Inc., dedicated to the development of the Next Generation Intelligent Fully Distributed Video-on-Demand Acceleration Technology, today announced that it has reached over 500,000 end-users in less than three months since launch in March and is gaining over 10,000 new users per day.
The company also reported that initial tests at the half dozen installed sites show that the Giraffic Video Acceleration Cloud is accelerating and offloading 65-80% of total user base traffic from customer’s networks onto Giraffic’s Fully Distributed Video Streaming Cloud. Some of the other promising results shown in recent deployments include:
Giraffic was the first VOD technology to support Fully Distributed multi-source Seek Forward functionality so that a user can jump ahead in the video, but still gets data from dozens of sources simultaneously. While some previous P2P technologies can either enable seek-forward for the user to jump ahead in the video by falling back on the server or CDN for delivery, only Giraffic’s technology commits entirely to peer based video seek, making Giraffic’s Seek-Forward an industry first. More features demonstrating Giraffic’s unique focus on Fully Distributed Video on Demand requirements - are expected to follow in the near future.
“We are thrilled and delighted with the strong initial adoption of Giraffic’s Video Accelerator among pioneering video publishers and end users alike,” said Yoel Zanger, CEO and founder of Giraffic. “We remain committed to providing the best possible creative and timely solutions for the needs of our ever-growing customers. This year’s developments have exceeded our expectations and we are very excited by our prospects in the coming future in the fast-growing VOD Acceleration industry.”
Giraffic provides the solutions for media companies, content distributors, video sharing sites, software game developers, social networks, and device manufacturers to the benefit of all users’ online media experience. Giraffic solves one of the most important issues in online video streaming today – the need to effectively deliver massive scale online movies at High Definition, without re-buffering pauses and at manageable bandwidth costs.
