Colorfront is offering sub-second latency reference quality secure video streaming.

For customers with in-facility Transkoders, On-Set Dailies and Express Dailies systems on Windows, Colorfront has enabled high-quality and low-latency remote video output. For cloud-based workflows, Colorfront has leveraged its many years of practical experience with Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure cloud services, to offer multi-GPU Transkoder instances in the cloud with remote video output.

The same remote streaming technology is also available for any live SDI video source using Colorfront's Remote Streaming Server solution.
