YouTube has adopted Secure Reliable Transport, the video streaming transport protocol designed to connect two endpoints for the purposes of delivering low-latency video and other media streams across any network.
As part of the adoption, the company has also joined the SRT Alliance.
“Haivision is thrilled to welcome YouTube to the SRT Alliance,” said Mirko Wicha, chairman and CEO, Haivision.
“Seeing the adoption of our SRT technology by YouTube and other industry leaders has shown how ubiquitous the protocol has become for low latency end-to-end video transport. From contribution to distribution, with YouTube now a member of the SRT Alliance, some of the most influential global media and entertainment organisations are now leveraging SRT in their workflows. We’re looking forward to future industry innovations and collaborations.”
