SRT has clearly become the de facto low-latency video streaming standard in the broadcast and streaming industries.
“The adoption of the SRT open source protocol as a defacto standard across the broadcast and streaming industry has been nothing less than astonishing,” said Sylvio Jelovcich, VP Alliances at Haivision. “Watching the community effort on Github towards progressing the technology is remarkable – the top developers in leading organizations are solving some of the toughest challenges in advanced broadcast workflows.”
To learn more about SRT and recent developments, Haivision and Microsoft are hosting the SRT Technical Panel at IBC2019 featuring video experts from Bridge Technologies, Globo, Haivision and Red Bee Media. The panel is designed for current and future SRT developers and will outline the applications and workflows that SRT solves, the technical roadmap, and implementation stories.
