Downingtown, PA, July 15, 2021 – – PTZOptics, leading manufacturer of affordable broadcast-quality robotic cameras, today announced that they have joined the SRT Alliance, the open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming.
As part of their overall strategy to provide broadcast-quality cameras and control devices that work on any network infrastructure, PTZOptics has steadily expanded the local area network control and distribution options for its entire product line. Now, as a member of the SRT Alliance, PTZOptics will be helping to define the use cases and technical requirements for secure live streaming and video production over wide area networks.
The SRT Alliance, founded by Haivision in April 2017, already has more than 500 members. Its mission is to overcome the challenges of low-latency live streaming by supporting the collaborative development of SRT (Secure Reliable Transport), the fastest growing open source streaming project. 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.
“Our customers want to be able to live stream without limitations,” says Paul Richards, Director of Marketing, PTZOptics. “We are proud to join the SRT Alliance in developing an open-source protocol that will provide security, reliability, and quality for low-latency streams on unmanaged networks.”
“With the SRT Alliance, PTZOptics is joining an industry movement to improve the way the world streams video,” said Suso Carrillo, Director of the SRT Alliance for Haivision. “We’re pleased to see the SRT protocol being actively implemented by some of the world’s most trusted broadcast technology providers as its adoption and industry-wide recognition continues to grow, becoming the de facto standard for low latency internet streaming.”
PTZOptics is a manufacturer of robotic pan, tilt, zoom camera solutions for a variety of broadcast applications, including both video production and live streaming. Established in 2014, PTZOptics disrupted the professional audiovisual industry when a group of engineers from a highly respected systems integration firm created the first in a portfolio of cameras that was a part of their vision to create an innovative solution for the complex needs of broadcast landscapes. Headquartered in Downingtown, Pa., the start-up quickly eclipsed some of the biggest brands in the growing PTZ camera category. With global distribution in more than 50 countries, PTZOptics has produced industry leading resources, including the StreamGeeks livestream series. PTZOptics is the sister-company to HuddleCamHD, manufacturers of professional video conferencing cameras. Learn more at www.PTZOptics.com.
