ATLANTA , Oct. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — SURREAL Events and Streaming Global announced today that they have entered into a strategic 3-year agreement to provide remote-rendered, real-time pixel-streaming and GPU Multitenancy to users of SURREAL XP.
Efficiently and cost-effectively scaling cloud infrastructure is one of the biggest challenges with metaverse experiences and spatial commerce. Current cloud rendering for high fidelity, low latency metaverse platforms, such as SURREAL XP, leverages WebRTC protocol for pixel-streaming – which equates to one (1) GPU to one (1) concurrent user (CCU). However, SURREAL is partnering with Streaming Global to bring multitenancy to the GPU, scaling at least nine (9) times the current capacity at lower rates and higher fidelity.
“We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Streaming Global to bring this revolutionary GPU Multitenancy solution to the market,” said SURREAL CEO Josh Rush. “Streaming Global has once again demonstrated how they are revolutionizing and scaling streaming technology, and solving the largest infrastructural challenge of streaming high-resolution multiplayer experiences.”
In addition to producing superior performance and scale advantages, Streaming Global’s SG-RT pixel-streaming protocol improves visual quality and reduces the resources required for deployment.
“The blue-chip brands and clients that trust SURREAL to deliver best-in-class immersive experiences and spatial commerce make them the ideal partner,” said Streaming Global CEO Richard Oesterreicher. “We look forward to collaborating with SURREAL to enable scale in earnest and paving the way to superior unit economics for the market.”
SG-RT pixel-streaming protocol combines the world’s fastest and most reliable remote-rendering delivery to every screen type with a simultaneous data back channel for input, enabling users to consume and interact with realtime rendered immersive experiences without the need for a dedicated GPU on their client device. This technology is immediately available in the latest release of SURREAL XP.
