Eurovision Services declared SRT Ready for internet transport
Eurovision Services has received official confirmation of its ‘SRT ready’ status from the SRT alliance. This status is reserved exclusively for SRT Alliance members who have integrated open source SRT into their solutions.
Specifically, Eurovision Services has developed its own SRT gateway, which is compatible with various third-party decoders, as well as its own SRT decoder, and has already deployed customer solutions that have been running for a number of months.
Eurovision Services joined the SRT alliance over two years ago, when it consisted of just 35 members. Today the Alliance is over 300 strong, with members working collaboratively in support of its mission to develop a freely available open-source video transport protocol and technology stack called SRT (Secure Reliable Transport).
“The tremendous growth in membership of the SRT Alliance since Eurovision Services joined in 2017 shows the power of open source protocols in taking our industry forward,” said Marco Tinnirello, CEO of Eurovision Services. “The recent announcement that Alibaba Cloud has become one of the latest members of the SRT Alliance is further confirmation of the protocol’s industry-leading status. We are proud to have been part of the SRT Alliance since its early days and the confirmation of our SRT ready status offers further proof that our Eurovision Global Network is equipped to handle low-latency streaming.”
“An enthusiastic SRT supporter from the outset, Eurovision Services has been both an early adopter of the SRT protocol and an active member of the SRT Alliance since it was formed in 2017,” said Suso Carillo, Director, SRT Alliance. “With this new SRT Ready status, Eurovision Services joins a fast-growing community of vendors, open source initiatives, and solution providers who are helping to set SRT as the industry standard worldwide. We look forward to our continued close collaboration.”
SRT is an open source video transport protocol and technology stack, developed and pioneered by Haivision, that optimises streaming performance across unpredictable networks with secure streams and easy firewall traversal, bringing the best quality live video over the worst networks.
The SRT Open Source Project, supported by the SRT Alliance, is a collaborative community of industry leaders and developers striving to achieve lower latency internet video transport by continuously improving open-source SRT.
