AJA Video Systems has joined the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) Alliance, an open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming.
An extension of AJA’s mission to meet increasing customer demand for secure, reliable streaming video pipelines across a host of industries, the announcement follows AJA’s recent launch of Bridge Live, a new multi-channel live video encoding, decoding, streaming and transcoding solution featuring support for SRT.
As a member of the SRT Alliance, AJA plans to continue exploring how it can improve its streaming offerings for customers by integrating the latest evolutions that the open source technology has to offer into tools such as Bridge Live.
The SRT Alliance, founded by Haivision in April 2017, is focused on overcoming the challenges of low latency live streaming by supporting the collaborative development of the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol. 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. With over 400 members in the SRT Alliance and widespread industry adoption, SRT is the fastest growing open source streaming project.
“SRT and the SRT Alliance are more relevant than ever, as organisations, businesses and institutions around the world have embraced remote working and production in 2020. Connecting with employees, customers, students, and other audiences on a global scale via video requires a secure and reliable transport mechanism, which is why we’ve built SRT support into Bridge Live,” said Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems. “We’re thrilled to join this growing alliance of technology innovators who share our passion for enabling more efficient, affordable live streaming workflows that answer modern security and reliability demands.”
“With support for the SRT Alliance continuing to grow, AJA is joining an industry movement to improve the way the world streams video,” said Jesús (Suso) Carrillo, director, SRT Alliance, Haivision. “We’re pleased to see AJA adopt the SRT protocol into their new solution to deliver its customers a best-in-class streaming experience.”
