Haivision has aquired Teltoo, a technology vendor that provides peer-to-peer (P2P) and WebRTC-enabled video delivery.

The acquisition will let Haivision apply its machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities against real-time network analytics to optimize edge-to-edge low latency video workflows.

Teltoo’s technology incorporates P2P, WebRTC and real-time network analytics to optimize video delivery for operators, media companies, and enterprises. The P2P algorithms, enabled by WebRTC for low latency browser support, reduce the reliance on CDN distribution to individual players and minimize buffering. Haivision will be integrating the Teltoo technology across its products.
