Blackbird is the latest technology vendor to join the SRT Alliance, which aims to overcome the challenges of low-latency live streaming by supporting the collaborative development of SRT (Secure Reliable Transport).
Blackbird said the move is in line with its commitment to support open standards and the reliability of video creation and distribution.
SRT allows for the use of unpredictable networks for content delivery and protects against packet loss, as well as provides secure encryption for high value content, added the company.
Huw Dymond, director of product and operations, Blackbird said: “Blackbird sits at the core of our customers’ video creation and publishing workflows and as a leader in internet based and cloud native video editing we are proud to join the SRT Alliance.
“Integration of the SRT protocol is complete and as such the benefits of security and resilience it can bring for customers looking to leverage SRT for their workflows now have a seamless bridge from live streaming to the power of our cloud native editing platform.”
