AJA Video Systems has joined the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) Alliance, the company has announced in what it says is an “extension of AJA’s mission to meet increasing customer demand for secure, reliable streaming video pipelines across a host of industries”.
For the uninitiated, the SRT Alliance, founded by Haivision, is an open-source initiative to pool industry resources in the effort to overcome the challenges of low-latency video streaming through the collaborative development of the SRT Protocol. As a new member, AJA said it plans to explore improving its streaming offerings for customers by integrating the latest evolutions that the open source technology has to offer into its solutions.
“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,” explained AJA’s president, Nick Rashby. “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.”
The SRT Alliance now has more than 400 members and with widespread adoption of the SRT Protocol, is the fastest growing open source streaming project.
“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.”
In a world where businesses are increasingly turning to (corporate) video production as a means of marketing, communications, and corporate messaging, efforts to enable organizations with broadcast-grade technology solutions will continue to grow in demand. The move is reflected in ISE’s inclusion of a new broadcast technology section for the 2021 iteration of the event in Barcelona, scheduled for 1st-4th June next year.
