Haivision is adding support for SRT to its Aviwest IP video contribution solutions in a move it says gives broadcasters more options than ever before for contributing real-time content for coverage of premium live events, news, and sports.
Haivision acquired Aviwest earlier this year.
According to the company, introducing SRT support to the Aviwest PRO, AIR, and RACK enables interoperability with the complete Haivision product portfolio and other SRT-enabled solutions.
It means Aviwest devices can be used alongside other Haivision broadcast technology in a wide variety of broadcast production scenarios, including multi-camera remote production, cloud contribution and distribution, and collaborative decentralised workflows.
Adding the SRT protocol for streaming over fixed IP networks to the Aviwest Safe Stream Transport (SST) technology, designed for cellular transmission of high-quality live video, dramatically improves interoperability with live broadcast production equipment and remote production workflows that include a mix of mobile and wired video contribution, added Haivision.
“With the introduction of SRT outputs as a complement to our SST technology, we are further expanding the scope of what is possible by offering our customers the best in reliable, low-latency video transmission over any network and to a wide range of receivers, gateways, and cloud workflows,” said Ronan Poullaouec, VP engineering remote and wireless systems, Haivision.
