And the Emmy® Goes to… Haivision!
You read that right – we won an Emmy®! We are thrilled to announce that Haivision has been awarded a 2018 Emmy® Award for Technology and Engineering from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS).
Haivision was recognized by NATAS’ Technology and Engineering Achievement Committee for our excellence and engineering creativity –for “Pioneering Reliable Transmission Method for Live Contribution and Distribution TV Links.” The technology behind that recognition is SRT (Secure Reliable Transport), an open-source protocol, developed by Haivision, which allows broadcasters and streamers to deliver high-quality, low-latency video streams across the public internet.
And to compound the excitement at Haivision, this announcement comes on the heels of even more recognition. Only yesterday at Streaming Media West, Haivision picked up two 2018 Reader’s Choice Awards. The Haivision Video Cloud won Best Live Streaming Platform and the Makito X Video Encoder Series won Best Encoding Hardware.
It has certainly been a good week, and we are so honored to see our hard work recognized. Our team works tirelessly to solve the video streaming challenges that our customers face on a daily basis. To have this work recognized with something as prestigious as an Emmy® Award shows that our efforts are improving video streaming workflows across the broadcast industry.
“We’re very proud of our engineering and development teams that have dedicated themselves to innovating the SRT technology and bringing it into the world as the industry’s best open source option for low latency video streaming.”
Mirko Wicha, President and Chief Executive Officer of Haivision
The award-winning SRT is fast becoming the de facto low latency video streaming standard in the broadcast and streaming industries. As a result of the fast pace of adoption, we recently published the SRT Protocol Technical Overview. This document gives an explanation of the technical aspects of the open-source SRT protocol as well as an overview of its implementation.
