The SRT Alliance Continues to Strengthen

Since being developed by Haivision, SRT continues to be adopted by the biggest names in the industry. SRT enables the delivery of high-quality, secure, low latency video across the public internet. To encourage widespread adoption so that more companies and customers could benefit from SRT, Haivision released the protocol on GitHub in 2017 as an open-source technology stack and founded the SRT Alliance. The SRT Alliance now has over 500 members made of a strong community of industry leaders and developers who are focused on addressing the challenges of low latency streaming through the collaborative development of SRT.
