Evertz joins SRT Alliance for low latency video streaming
Evertz has joined the SRT Alliance, the open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming. Evertz’s affiliation with SRT Alliance comes at a particularly critical time. Demand for remote work solutions that require low latency, reliable and secure technology to deliver video has spiked, with many customers forced to transform their homes into makeshift office spaces.
Evertz has recognised this as an opportunity to help our customers avoid any obstructions to their vital workflows. Evertz has invested its efforts to implement industry recognised and widely accepted open source SRT protocol. As a result, the SRT protocol is added to our existing compression products. It has also been offered as a bulk and single instance SRT processing unit to both on-prem and in the cloud workflows.
Additionally, Evertz has developed an end-to-end video delivery solution based on SRT delivery protocol, which streams video from origination to user desktops or mobile players by utilising the customer’s own cloud server to reproduce one stream to many clients.
The SRT Alliance, founded by Haivision in April 2017, already has more than 350 members. Its mission is to overcome the challenges of low-latency live streaming by supporting the collaborative development of SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) Open Source, the fastest growing open source streaming project.
SRT is a free open source video transport protocol and technology stack originally developed and pioneered by Haivision that enables the delivery of high-quality and secure, low-latency video across the public internet.
