Imagine Communications, Net Insight, Red Bee Media and Telestream among new SRT Alliance members
The SRT Alliance supporting the SRT Open Source Project has announced that 39 more companies have recently endorsed the SRT protocol for low latency video streaming, including broadcast industry participants Imagine Communications, Net Insight, Red Bee Media and Telestream.
SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) is an open-source protocol, developed by Haivision, which allows broadcasters and streamers to deliver high-quality, low-latency streams across the public internet. SRT is, the Alliance claims, fast becoming the de facto low latency video streaming standard in the broadcast and streaming industries.
“We are pleased to support SRT technology and join the SRT Alliance,” said David Heppe, commercial general manager, targeted delivery at Imagine Communications. “We see SRT as a valuable tool to help our customers more reliably transport their content into our cloud-based targeted advertising workflows.”
“We are increasingly distributing video for high value live events, often on a temporary basis for customers that demand high quality over secure and reliable networks,” said Steve Russell, head of media management and OTT at Red Bee Media. “SRT enables us to expand our customers’ reach while adhering to our preference for open standards.”
Since SRT became open source at NAB 2017 more than 200 companies, including Microsoft, Comcast, EBU/Eurovision, Harmonic, Ateme, MediaKind, Brightcove, and Kaltura, have shown their support for the emerging standard by joining the SRT Alliance.
