To bring broadcasters more options than ever before for contributing real-time coverage of premium live events, news, and sports, Haivision has introduced SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) video streaming support to Aviwest IP video contribution solutions.
Haivision acquired Aviwest in April 2022 to expand its video contribution solutions portfolio to include 5G transmission, mobile video contribution, and network bonding technology.
Now integrated with SRT support, the Aviwest PRO, AIR, and RACK series can be interoperable with the complete Haivision product portfolio and other SRT-enabled solutions. This allows Aviwest devices to be used alongside other Haivision broadcast technology in a wide variety of broadcast production scenarios, including multi-camera remote production, cloud contribution and distribution, and collaborative decentralised workflows.
Originally developed by Haivision, SRT is an open-source video transport protocol that optimises real-time streaming across unpredictable networks. SRT provides TV broadcasters with a secure and reliable solution for low-latency video contribution over the Internet, and includes low-latency packet loss recovery and AES 128/256-bit encryption for end-to-end security.
Adding the SRT protocol for streaming over fixed IP networks alongside Aviwest Safe Stream Transport (SST) technology — designed for cellular transmission of high-quality live video — improves interoperability with live broadcast production equipment and remote production workflows that include a mix of mobile and wired video contribution, said Haivision.
Ronan Poullaouec, VP Engineering Remote & Wireless Systems, Haivision, added, “With the introduction of SRT outputs as a complement to our SST technology, we are further expanding the scope of what is possible by offering our customers the best in reliable, low-latency video transmission over any network and to a wide range of receivers, gateways, and cloud workflows.”
