Asset management and broadcast automation solutions provider Primestream has announced it has joined the SRT Alliance.
The Alliance was founded by Haivision in April 2017 and is “focused on overcoming the challenges of low-latency live streaming by supporting the collaborative development of the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol”. SRT is a free, open-source video transport protocol and technology stack (originally developed by Haivision) that enables the delivery of high-quality, secure, low-latency video across the internet.
“IP-based stream production workflows are the wave of the future for all types of media enterprises, but a critical success factor is the ability to transport high-quality, low-latency video in a secure and reliable manner,” said Claudio Lisman, Primestream’s president and CEO. “That’s why we are happy to be working with the SRT Alliance in its groundbreaking efforts to create an open-source video transport protocol and to introduce SRT solutions like Media IO.”
Jesús (Suso) Carrillo, director SRT Alliance at Haivision, added, “We’re excited that Primestream is joining the SRT Alliance. By adding SRT into their suite of products, Primestream is providing its customers with flexible, robust, and easy-to-use tools to manage multiple streams from capture through to distribution.”
