Samsung Smart TVs Now Accelerated With Giraffic's Adaptive Video Acceleration™ Technology

TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--

Giraffic announced today that Samsung (News - Alert) has selected its technology to enhance HD Streaming on 2014 Samsung Smart TVs and BluRay players.

Giraffic is the pioneer of Adaptive Video Acceleration(AVA), a technology that virtually eliminates re-buffering for a reliable, high quality, streaming media experience over any Internet connection. Device manufacturers and OTT service providers can use AVA for all HTTP-based playback and rich media downloads.

With accelerated performance measured by Samsung, Giraffic and Samsung have set to resolve one of the content industry's most pressing problems, including buffering interruptions, suboptimal video resolution and inconsistent quality-of-service for HD video streaming.

"We're thrilled to be partnering with a company that has shown true commitment in bringing broadcast quality to over-the-top TV," said Giraffic CEO and founder Yoel Zanger. "With Giraffic's Adaptive Video Accelerator, Samsung's customers can now enjoy a differentiated experience with their favorite online video applications at the highest quality available."

Giraffic's Adaptive Video Acelerator is a client-side only software solution without any server-side integration, and is agnostic to the content source. It accelerates content that is streamed or downloaded to the device's native video player without any further integration or implementation required by the content provider.

AVA provides a better streaming experience by analyzing throughput and maximizing TCP bandwidth utilization, intelligently managing and monitoring downloads on the device from almost any standard HTTP-based content source, and by monitoring and shaping playback.

Giraffic's AVA enables device manufacturers and OTT providers to boost the video streaming performance over any Internet connection. Supported on all major operating systems, and compatible with all HTTP-based streaming protocols including HLS, MPEG-DASH and Smooth Streaming, the technology can run on any device, including IP set-top boxes, smart TVs, smartphones and tablets.

Giraffic's AVA technology is currently available on Samsung 2014 Smart TVs and BluRay players. For further information about AVA, including side-by-side live demo and benchmarks, please visit http://www.giraffic.com
