SRT Alliance Welcomes Comcast Technology Solutions and Ooyala to Open Source Video Streaming Project

SRT Continues Momentum to Becoming the De facto Low Latency Video Streaming Standard.
Montreal, Quebec(11/14/2018) -

The SRT Alliance, supporting the SRT Open Source Project, announces continued momentum with new members Comcast Technology Solutions and Ooyala.

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 fast becoming the de facto low latency video streaming standard in the broadcast and streaming industries.

Since SRT became open source more than 18 months ago, over 170 + companies (including Microsoft, Comcast, EBU/Eurovision, Harmonic, Ateme, MediaKind, Brightcove, and Kaltura) have shown their support of the emerging standard by joining the SRT Alliance. For a current list of SRT Alliance members see srtalliance.org/members.  

To learn more about the momentum behind the SRT open source project, Haivision is moderating and hosting a panel session at Inter BEE Thursday, November 15 at 15:00 featuring Microsoft Japan, Riot Games, Cyber Agent, and Explorer.

A technical overview of the protocol and technology is also now available for download, detailing all aspects of SRT including its origins, packet structures, the sender and receiver operations, packet loss recovery techniques, handshaking mechanisms, timing and latency, and encryption.
