SRT Adoption Skyrockets
There’s no doubt about it, SRT is changing the way that companies work. And amid the Coronavirus pandemic, SRT is proving to be more critical than ever, providing broadcasters with the security and confidence required to power their remote, at-home workflows. SRT has been a critical component to their success, connecting remote employees and broadcast centers with live interviews, and enabling at-home contribution, and production monitoring.
SRT Alliance: An Active and Engaged Community
Founded just three years ago at NAB, the SRT Alliance has rapidly expanded and counts among its member organizations from all over the world including broadcast solution providers, video streaming technology developers and vendors as well as live event production companies An important goal of the SRT Alliance is to make new features available to the open source community. Community-contributed open source SRT functionality is available to any developer and new developments by SRT Alliance members will migrate back into open source SRT on a regular basis.
In a testament to the SRT Alliance member’s cross-industry collaborative efforts, the SRT Plugfest event earlier this year, allowed developers to put their respective technologies through their paces with a series of interoperability tests between vendors around the world.
Today, SRT is used by thousands of organizations globally in a wide range of industry applications, from IP cameras, video encoders and decoders to gateways, OTT platforms, and CDNs. SRT has also been adopted by leading industry open source technologies including VLC by VideoLAN, GStreamer, Wireshark, FFmpeg, Libav, and most recently, OBS Studio. In addition, SRT is being used and endorsed by industry heavyweights across the globe such as Microsoft, Avid, and Telestream to name a few.
