Google Cloud has announced that it had finally decided to become a member of the SRT Alliance, a collaborative community of over 500 product, service and solution providers supporting the adoption of the open-source Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) video streaming protocol.
Declaring Google Cloud’s commitment to helping media organisations around the world transform their audience experiences, Anil Jain, Managing Director of Media & Entertainment Industry Solutions at Google Cloud, added, “We are delivering on that commitment by innovating alongside partners like Haivision and the SRT Alliance, and helping drive the adoption of new technologies such as the SRT protocol that supports our continuously expanding portfolio of solutions for the media and entertainment industry.”
Originally developed and pioneered by Haivision, SRT enables the delivery of high-quality and secure, low-latency video across the public internet. In 2017, Haivision made the SRT protocol and supporting technology stack open source and formed the SRT Alliance to promote its adoption.
Mirko Wicha, President, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Haivision, said, “Haivision’s team of SRT developers collaborates with engineers from the most progressive organisations, both within the open-source community and within standards organisations, to better the technology stack and expand its application areas.
“Together, with Google Cloud, we’re thrilled to advance our commitment to help overcome the challenges of mission-critical, low-latency video streaming.”
