US sports OTT platform Zingo TV has announced a partnership with Streaming Global that it says will enable it to deliver live streams at sub-second latency, a delay that is 30-60 times faster than industry average.

According to Streaming Global its technology delivers streams directly to Cloud storage servers, eliminating the unnecessary parts of the conventional pipeline to allow the benefits of low delay, high scale delivery for live, linear, OTT and VoD streaming platforms.

It uses existing Cloud providers, such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, and private/custom Clouds.
