The Alliance was formed after NAB 2017 where it saw an opportunity to address three challenges.
Jelovich explained: ”Streamers needed a replacement for RTMP (real-time messaging protocol). Broadcasters needed a replacement for proprietary expensive protocol and global transport for cloud.
“So we saw the opportunity to address these challenges with SRT and that is why we made it open sourced.”
The Alliance is looking to take its SRT Hub technology to the “next level” for media routing in the cloud based on SRT.
