VideoLink Awarded U.S. Patent for EnhancedIP
Innovative Technology Makes Video Transmission Over the Internet More Reliable
NEWTON, Mass. – October 23, 2018 – VideoLink LLC, a leading provider of video services and technologies, announced today that its innovative dynamic buffer technology on an overlay network was granted patent number 10,075,357 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Internet transmission issues often result in poor video quality or long buffer times, neither of which are conducive to a positive viewing experience. With VideoLink’s technology, customers can quickly transmit and receive high-quality video with the lowest possible buffer time.
“Customers can confidently stream video, knowing that they have fast and reliable video transmission via the internet,” said Leigh Willis, vice president of engineering at VideoLink. “It allows our clients and in-house operations group to rapidly and efficiently create the video content that national television networks and Fortune 500 companies rely on every day.”
The technology is used within VideoLink’s groundbreaking EnhancedIP (EIP) transmission services. EIP transmits broadcast-quality video streams for live television and other live applications while maintaining low-latency and high-reliability.
The patented approach employed by EIP allows the system to precisely manage buffer sizes by allowing buffers to adapt as needed in response to changing internet conditions. VideoLink uses this technology to transmit nearly 8,000 live shots to broadcast networks each year.
