Primestream Joins SRT Alliance

Primestream, a provider of asset management and automation software solutions is joining the SRT Alliance in support of low-latency live streaming.

With its Media IO live ingest, playout, and transcoding solution, Primestream has a solution that enables operators to integrate SRT streams into live production and distribution workflows without ever having to touch baseband video.

The vendor explains that with Media IO, operators can ingest multiple SRT streams from IP encoders, remote surveillance cameras, or drones and monitor the sources without the use of video monitors or a routing switcher. Each stream can be transcoded in real time into house formats such as AVC, H.264, XDCAM, DNxHD, or ProRes, enabling editors to preview and edit live sources on the spot.

“IP-based stream production workflows are the wave of the future for all types of media enterprises, but a critical success factor is the ability to transport high-quality, low-latency video in a secure and reliable manner,” said Claudio Lisman, president and CEO. “That’s why we are happy to be working with the SRT Alliance in its groundbreaking efforts to create an open-source video transport protocol and to introduce SRT solutions like Media IO.”

SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) is a free, open-source video transport protocol and technology stack originally developed and pioneered by Haivision that enables the delivery of high-quality, secure, low-latency video across the public internet. There are more than 400 members in the SRT Alliance.
