Secure Reliable Transport (SRT)

Learn more about Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) in this video where you’ll find out how it was developed and why this new streaming video protocol is being adopted so widely in this video.

SRT stands for ‘Secure Reliable Transport’, and is an open source video transport protocol and technology stack. SRT uses secure streams and easy firewall traversal to optimize streaming performance and deliver high-quality video over even the most unreliable networks.

The SRT protocol uses end-to-end 128/256 bit AES encryption to ensure that content is protected from contribution to distribution. It also provides the ability to configure specific controls that allow users to correct for specific network challenges in order to deliver low latency video and protect against jitter, packet loss, and bandwidth fluctuation.

The SRT Open Source Project is largely driven by the SRT Alliance, which was founded by Haivision and Wowza. The collaborative efforts of the alliance bring together industry leaders and developers with the goal of continuing to improve open-source SRT and achieve lower latency internet video transport.

Other notable members of the SRT Alliance include Ericsson, Brightcove, Dacast, and Limelight.
