The SRT Alliance, the open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming, has welcomed LiveU as their latest member.
The move, according to LiveU, is in line with the company’s commitment to support open standards and improve the reliability of video contribution and distribution across the public Internet. Working in conjunction with LiveU’s Reliable Transport (LRT), the protocols ensure that video is received at the highest quality and lowest latency possible as part of an end-to-end connected workflow within and beyond the LiveU ecosystem.
Avi Cohen, COO and Co-founder of LiveU, said, “We’re proud to join the SRT Alliance, helping to steer the open source development of the SRT protocol and ensure full interoperability and reliability across public internet video contribution and distribution.
“It brings together a very significant number of companies, further increasing cross-industry collaboration and future protocol development.”
Currently attracted more than 500 members, the SRT Alliance was founded by Haivision in 2017, with the stated mission to overcome the challenges of low-latency live streaming by supporting the collaborative development of the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol.
Describing LiveU as an “important new member of the Alliance”, Suso Carrillo, Director of the SRT Alliance at Haivision, added, “We’re pleased to see the SRT protocol being deployed by some of the world’s biggest broadcast and production companies as its adoption and industry-wide recognition continues to grow.”
