The SRT Alliance has announced it now has the support of 600 members with Paramount, Cloudflare, Dolby.io, Chyron, JW Player, THEO Technologies, EVS, BuyDRM, Blackbird, Backlight, and Barco recently joining.
Haivision originally developed SRT in 2013 to enable low-latency video connectivity over the public internet between its products. In April 2017, the company made the SRT protocol and supporting technology stack open source and freely available, and formed the SRT Alliance to support its adoption.
“SRT continues to influence the way that the world is streaming video,” said Pablo Hesse, VP of strategic initiatives, Haivision. “Now 600 vendors strong, the SRT Alliance continues to champion the adoption of SRT as the gold standard that global streaming, technology, and broadcast organisations trust for their complete broadcast workflows.”
Speaking about Blackbird’s decision to join the Alliance, chief marketing officer Adrian Lambert said: “SRT is integrated into Blackbird to enable our customers to leverage the benefits of SRT streams for fast, efficient cloud-native editing and publishing. SRT has been important for fostering partnership opportunities and enhancing content creation and delivery workflows throughout the broadcast and media industry.”
“SRT is a true enabler for EVS’ Balanced Computing approach,” added Laurent Petit, SVP markets and business alliances, EVS. “Its real-time streaming capabilities make it ideal for recording video feeds over public networks with high reliability and security.”
