ToolsOnAir: just:inlinux 5.0 features support for the SRT streaming protocol

The move comes shortly after the launch of version 5.0 of ToolsOnAir’s enterprise-grade just:in linux multi-channel ingest appliance, which adds full support for the SRT streaming protocol.

With the new version 5.0 of just:in linux, users can benefit from the combination of already existing baseband ingest recording capabilities over SDI and HDMI and the new addition of SRT and NDI input sources. Each incoming SRT stream can be recorded in real-time into industry-standard formats such as AVC-I, XDCAM, DNxHD/HR, ProRes and uncompressed, in matching MOV, MXF, MP4/MPEG-TS or AVI containers, up to UHD2 resolution, with full growing file support in qualified NLEs.

“During the roadmap design of IP streaming input support in our version 5.0, we looked at the specifications of SRT and soon agreed on the significant benefits that the SRT protocol would add to our flagship ingest solution to meet the expectations of future-oriented IP-based production workflows,” said Christian Schabasser, senior ingest product manager at ToolsOnAir.

“We’re excited that ToolsOnAir is joining the SRT Alliance community.” said Jesús (Suso) Carrillo, director SRT Alliance, Haivision. “By adding the SRT protocol into their just:in linux ingest solution, ToolsOnAir is providing its customers a best-in-class multi-channel recording experience.”
