First SRT Virtual Plugfest yields more than 50 successful “SRT Ready” interoperability tests including contribution encoders, cameras, gateway products, decoders, multiviewers and players
MONTREAL, CANADA – June 6, 2018 – The SRT Open Source Project, the fastest growing open source video streaming movement, announces that Ericsson and BrightSign have joined the SRT Alliance, bringing the total number of members to 127.
Ericsson Media Solutions, a leading provider of broadcast video solutions, joins the SRT Alliance leveraging SRT with their distributed cloud contribution solutions. BrightSign, global market leader in digital signage players, joins the alliance to enable their endpoints to receive and display high-quality, low-latency video from remote sources. Other members that have joined recently include Anevia, Cinemassive, DaCast, and Marshall Electronics. The complete list of SRT Alliance members can be found here.
With the wide adoption of SRT, now implemented within more than 40 products on the market, the SRT Alliance held its first Virtual Plugfest on May 15 and 16 in order to test interoperability of SRT streams amongst different vendors. The event yielded outstanding results with more than 50 successfully completed tests from 15 manufacturers, validating SRT streams between cameras, encoders, decoders, gateways, multiviewers and players. The two day event was hosted by SRT Alliance co-founders Haivision and Wowza, from testing facilities in Chicago, Montreal, Denver and Germany. Participants included AppearTV, Arbor Media, BrightSign, Cabletime, Camstreamer, Cinegy, Cogent, D2D, Haivision, Lumens, Matrox, Radiant, T21, Telvue, Teradek and Wowza.
“The SRT ecosystem is growing by the day, as evidenced by some new top tier members joining and the success of the plugfest. It’s exciting to see the breadth of new SRT Ready solutions that are continuously being launched in the streaming and broadcast community,” says Sylvio Jelovcich, vice president of global alliances at Haivision. “With proven interoperability, users can feel confident in deploying SRT throughout their workflow, ensuring the delivery of secure, high quality, low latency video content.”
At InfoComm 2018 in Las Vegas on June 6-8, Matrox is hosting an SRT Alliance Pavilion (booth N1322), demonstrating multi-vendor SRT Open Source interoperability, with the following products:
