SyncWords Joins the HESP Alliance to Deliver Streaming Language Translations

SyncWords, the leader in closed captioning, subtitling, and translation for virtual live events, is excited to announce its membership in the HESP Alliance. 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. With zapping, start-up, and seeking times well under 100ms, it achieves experiences better than existing broadcast solutions.

SyncWords and THEO Technologies are already in an official partnership, offering SyncWords professional services and automated solutions via THEOplayer, committed to making streaming video better than broadcast. 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.
