Using the same 128/256 bit AES encryption trusted by governments and organizations around the world, SRT ensures that valuable content is protected end-to-end from contribution to distribution so that no unauthorized parties can listen.
No matter how unreliable your network, SRT can recover from severe packet loss and jitter, ensuring the integrity and quality of your video streams.
LOW LATENCY ERROR RECOVERY
SRT’s stream error correction is configurable to accommodate a user’s deployment conditions. Leveraging real-time IP communications development to extend traditional network error recovery practices, SRT delivers media with significantly lower latency than TCP/IP, while offering the speed of unreliable UDP transmission without the disadvantages.
EASY FIREWALL TRAVERSAL
The handshaking process used by SRT supports outbound connections without the potential risks and dangers of permanent exterior ports being opened in a firewall, thereby maintaining corporate LAN security policies and minimizing the need for IT intervention.
Unlike some other streaming protocols that only support specific video and audio formats, SRT is payload agnostic. Because SRT operates at the network transport level, acting as a wrapper around your content, it can transport any type of video format, codec, resolution or frame rate.
OPEN SOURCE COLLABORATION
SRT can be implemented using a free, open source code base, keeping costs low for all parties. There are no royalties, long-term contracts or monthly subscription fees required. Being open source encourages SRT’s widespread adoption, ensures both interoperability and longevity for end users, and accelerates innovation through continuous collaborative development.
