Tripleplay Delivers ‘Sub-Frame’ Encoding with Launch of New Low Latency IP Video Encoder

Low Latency Encoder LH2

London, UK, 15/04/2021; Tripleplay has today released its new Low Latency Encoder delivering a best-in-class streaming solution for live events or applications, where low latency is critical to optimize end-user experience when viewing live streamed content.

Tripleplay’s new Encoder ensures the time delay between video input and IPTV stream output is as low as possible, delivering sub-frame latency at 1080p60.  When used in combination with the optimized Tripleplay PLAY3R-SP1 player, an incredible glass-to-glass latency as low as 100ms can be achieved, a 60% improvement compared to Tripleplay’s existing low latency encoder.

Within key verticals, such as sports stadia, to achieve the expected experience for fans, the live TV stream shown on signage screens away from the pitch needs to be fully synchronized with the live action. All fans, whether they are pitch side or in the arena; want to view, hear, and celebrate key match moments at the same time with no discernible time lag, hence the encoder speed is critical.

Low latency encoders also have a key role within enterprises where town hall events or business critical information needs to be streamed to screens with very low latencies to avoid time lags, ensuring all employees receive key information at the same time.

Key Features of the Tripleplay Low Latency Encoder:

  • Glass to glass latency as low as 100ms can be achieved, with the encoder latency as low as 0.25ms.


  • The encoder offers two channels, each equipped with HDMI and SDI inputs.
  • Can be sited close to the input source, reducing the need for lengthy cabling back to the server room.

Steve Rickless, Tripleplay chief executive officer commented, “The release of our new Low Latency Encoder is a direct result of our long-term strategic investment in market-defining products. This new Encoder marks a significant step forwards in our technology innovation and is already proven to deliver exceptionally impressive results, helping to achieve an optimum end-user or fan experience.”

As a standalone hardware appliance, the Encoder is fully supported and integrated with the Tripleplay IPTV, signage and video streaming solution. Further information is available at or contact Tripleplay directly via
