In the latest update to its Media Composer editing software, Avid has added support for the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol.
According to the company, the addition enables editors to securely stream video and audio output from Media Composer over the internet to anyone, anywhere using an SRT-enabled decoder, set-top box, video player or mobile device to view the playback in real time.
While SRT ensures secure streaming of content with end-to-end 128/256-bit AES encryption, Avid | Edit On Demand can also restrict client access to Media Composer output, said Avid.
Teams can connect to a Haivision Gateway on premises or in the cloud to enable stream replication and firewall traversal so that devices behind a firewall can access streams without breaching network security.
“In-person over-the-shoulder access for content review and approval has always been essential to successful workflows and now SRT ensures this is possible in remote and distributed editorial workflows,” said David Colantuoni, VP, product management for video and media solutions, Avid.
“Avid | Edit On Demand provides large and small teams with a virtual turnkey post production facility in the cloud that provides even greater agility, flexibility, and security to complete and deliver projects on time and within budget.”
