CatonNet Video Platform (CVP)

High quality, real-time video transport over any IP network
CatonNet Video Platform (CVP) is designed as a high availability, ultra-low latency and secure service that dynamically transports and receives videos locally, regionally and globally. The video is transmitted and received with real-time visibility without compromising quality, security or speed. 

With broad coverage of point of presence (PoP) in over 60 countries worldwide, this fully managed end-to-end service delivers superior video with up to 99.999% stream availability. All while enjoying significant cost savings compared to traditional network services. 

CVP is powered by Caton Transport Protocol (CTP), an industry-leading protocol that mitigates network challenges by recovering data loss of up to 50%. The continuous pursuit of quality, stability and speed has spurred the development of Multipathing to strengthen the architecture of PoP network. 

The intelligence of this advanced technology, with traffic-shaping capabilities, enhances the resilience of each transmission. It ensures that the most optimal route is automatically selected even in the most challenging network conditions, delivering the highest transmission quality. The multipathing feature also allows users to customize and prioritize different paths for different streams based on various needs to achieve the most efficient workflows and cost savings.
