The SRT Alliance Adds 14 New Members
The SRT Alliance, an open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming, has announced that 14 new members have joined the initiative including Eurovision Media Services, Matrox and Telvue.
Now with more than 35 members, the SRT Alliance’s rapid growth supports continued adoption and development of the low latency SRT open source video transport protocol across a variety of industries. Founded by Haivision and Wowza, the SRT Alliance is focused on developing SRT to be an alternative to proprietary and expensive transmission protocols by offering an open source solution that can deliver low-latency video with greater reliability and performance in sub-optimal networks.
The new SRT Alliance members represent a broad range of use cases, vertical segments, and geographies, illustrating the intrinsic value of the SRT transport protocol in delivering highly reliable, low-latency point-to-point video links over the internet for companies globally.
“Eurovision Media Services is proud to join the SRT Alliance to help develop an open-source video transport protocol that addresses the main challenges our clients face when it comes to providing high performance, low-latency streaming in a secure and reliable way across the public Internet,” says Graham Warren, chief operating officer of Eurovision Media Services.
“As we increasingly look to IP networks to transport video content, it is standardized and open technologies that will lay the foundation for lasting and transformative solutions,” says David Chiappini, vice-president research and development, Matrox Graphics Inc. “Through implementation of the SRT protocol, Matrox expands its commitment to open, interoperable streaming products, without sacrificing end-to-end security and the low-latency that users expect from modern encoders.”
“TelVue is pleased to be a member of the SRT Alliance along with other forward thinking broadcast equipment and service providers,” says Paul Andrews, senior vice president of sales and marketing at TelVue. “Our customers are innovative and take their broadcast video quality seriously. The promise of SRT to provide reliable, resilient, high bandwidth, low latency video distribution across the public Internet is very exciting. TelVue is pleased to help bring SRT to our customers.”
“Our new SRT Alliance members are joining an industry movement to improve the way the world streams video,” says Sylvio Jelovcich, Vice President of Global Alliances, Haivision. “We’re looking forward to seeing the SRT protocol be actively implemented in some of the world’s biggest streaming solutions, and anticipate more SRT adoption and developments in the coming months.”
“SRT reinforces live streaming workflows across unstable or dirty networks, and allows people to deliver anywhere in the world with superior reliability,” says Carlos Perez, Chief Revenue Officer at Wowza Media Systems. “The growth of the alliance to include every part of the streaming ecosystem, is a testament to the need for open-source solutions that can collectively form a standard for delivery across the technology spectrum. ”
