SRT Open Source Celebrates Four Years of Industry Adoption for Low Latency Video Transport; SRT Alliance Welcomes 500th Member, Lumen Technologies

Haivision (TSX: HAI), a leading global provider of mission-critical, real-time video streaming and networking solutions, today announced that the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol has garnered the support of over 500 solution and service providers within the first four years of its open-source availability.

Haivision originally developed SRT in 2013 to enable low latency video connectivity over the public internet between its products, specifically the Makito low latency series of video encoders and decoders. Having proven the technology within its own products during the NAB conference in April 2017, Haivision made the SRT protocol and supporting technology stack open source and freely available to all market participants and formed the SRT Alliance to support its adoption. During the past four years, almost every major streaming service, cloud platform, and broadcast solution provider has supported and adopted SRT.

Lumen Technologies, a global CDN provider that delivers industry-leading Vyvx® managed fiber solutions for multi-point video distribution, is the latest organization to join the SRT Alliance, becoming the organization’s 500th member.
