Sydney to Boston is quite a ways to travel; 10,091 miles in fact (or for those that enjoy a more logical measurement system: 16,239 km). Despite that, our end to end WebRTC latency still holds steady at 500ms (give or take a few hundredths) That's 20,182 miles per hour or 32,478 kilometers per hour (I'm just the marketing guy so I won't blame you if you stop to check my math). Not too shabby if we do say so ourselves. Of course, for the absolute best performance you can use our clustering solution to set up…

A New Kind of Vision

Soldiers and poets; ordinarily the two occupy different worlds. That is, until live-streaming gets involved. Thanks to the extraordinary developers at Good Company they have enabled a soldier, blinded in combat, to once again connect to his surroundings. Wearing a pair of WiFi enabled iVue glasses and earphones, Major Scott Smiley sent a live-stream to poet Matthew Dickman who could then describe what the glasses were seeing in real-time.
