SRT Alliance Surpasses 450 Members
It has been a challenging year; industry leaders in broadcast technology, and video have been looking for the right tools and resources to help overcome the unique obstacles posed by 2020. And many have found that the open source SRT protocol has been an important part of many solutions, helping organizations connect and collaborate from anywhere, and over 50 industry-leading organizations have joined the SRT Alliance in the last three months.
As of today, the SRT Alliance now has over 450 members, including new members AJAJ Video Systems, Dalet, NTT TechnoCross Corporate, and Ross Video.
SRT Tuesdays are Back!
The growing popularity of the SRT protocol, and the number of exciting use cases with the open source protocol has led to the return of the popular SRT Tuesday webinar series. Hosted by the Haivision and the SRT Alliance, the SRT Tuesday webinar series features leaders in broadcast and video exploring how they are using the SRT protocol to create new and innovative solutions.
The next SRT Tuesday webinar will take place Nov. 3, with Easylive.io, exploring how they use SRT to stream sports fans’ reactions to stadium screens, online, and TV broadcasts with low latency video. Watch now – or visit the SRT Alliance website for more info.
We are excited to share that the next SRT Plugfest, hosted by Haivision and the SRT Alliance, will be taking place in December 2020. The three-day event will start with a kick-off webinar on Tuesday, Dec. 8. The Plugfest gives developers the opportunity test interoperability and compatibility between different technologies using the SRT open source video streaming protocol.
The last SRT Plugfest was hosted in May 2020 and was a great success. Thanks to the enthusiastic participation of the SRT Alliance community, over 378 individual “device to device” tests were performed over the 3 days. And what’s more, there was not one single failure, nor any incompatibilities detected using SRT.
