A fast video streaming accelerator.
Giraffic is the world’s first Peer-to-Peer Video on Demand Network (P2P-VoD), which enables content providers to instantly deliver over the internet Video on Demand and other rich media, regardless of how popular it is, or the geographical location of the end user.
Giraffic is based on an advanced, patented technology which turns your end users into valuable resources through the enrichment of their own user experience. The core of the solution is a new streaming technology that can retrieve data from multiple sources simultaneously, without latency, at a fraction the cost of existing content delivery solutions.
Giraffic is a robust peer-to-peer network, leveraging the universal presence of end-users, together with sophisticated data and streaming management algorithms. Get Giraffic Video Accelerator and take it for a spin to see what it can actually do for you!
Here are some key features of "Giraffic Video Accelerator":
· Redundancy and High Availability are integrated into the data itself, eliminating reliance on replication/caching of content on the network.
· Pro-Active Seeding pushes content to users in the network and manages it using a reliable and secure global storage pool.
· Coded Multiple Source Streaming enabling simultaneous delivery of content from multiple sources, using progressive downloading or streaming. This is done by the effective leveraging of aggregate bandwidth resources, robust streaming technologies, and inherent load balancing.
· Scalable Indexing and Fast Search enabling efficient data storage over a P2P network, and latency-free, near real-time retrieval.
· Automatic Provisioning of Content and Self-Healing of Data across the network. As end-user computers or media devices go offline, Giraffic automatically monitors the network and creates more sources, on the fly, for every piece of content.
· Automatic Adaptation to Extremely Popular Content so that when a content item becomes popular, Giraffic's management system automatically caches it on a large number of users' devices making it immediately available to new users.
· Cross-Platform and Very Low Footprint - installable on PCs, set-top-boxes and mobile devices (on our roadmap).
· Considerate and non-disruptive within a user's environment. Giraffic consumes resources mainly when a user's PC or device is idle.
· Comprehensive Management, Control and Reporting enabling a real-time view of network performance as well as aggregate statistics on user consumption behavior, network efficiency, content distribution and more.
