Participating companies included AJA, Avid, Evertz, Grass Valley, Imagine Communications, JVC, LTN, NetInsight, Sony and Telestream.
The SRT Alliance, a community of over 450 solution providers supporting the SRT Open Source project, announced the completion of the SRT InterOp Fall 2020 Plugfest.
Hosted by Haivision and the SRT Alliance, the Plugfest attracted more than 40 broadcast and streaming vendors who successfully tested interoperability between products, services, and solutions that support the SRT Open Source protocol for low latency video streaming. In all, more than 700 product compatibilities were confirmed. Participating companies included AJA, Avid, Evertz, Grass Valley, Imagine Communications, JVC, LTN, NetInsight, Sony and Telestream.
SRT (Secure Reliable Transport), originally developed by Haivision, is a video streaming protocol which enables remote and cloud-based high-performance video workflows.
Highlights of the SRT InterOp Plugfest include:
Haivision provided the core SRT transport infrastructure, including Makito X4 4K low latency video encoders, SRT Gateway cloud instances on Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, and Alibaba Cloud, and Haivision Hub for global low latency stream connectivity.
Telestream provided its latest Cloud Stream Monitoring Service to assure the network and video quality for IP video streams shared between participants.
The latest SRT developments were presented, including new enhancements to the IETF Internet Draft submission. Results showed near 100 percent compatibility amongst vendor solutions with over 700 positive interoperability tests.
“SRT is a key enabler to multi-vendor global cloud workflows,” said Kenneth Haren, Director of Product Management for Cloud Channel & Monitoring Services at Telestream. “We designed our Telestream Cloud Stream Monitor to establish probes easily at any point in an SRT workflow regardless of cloud platform so broadcasters can inspect any stream and be alerted to performance outside of pre-determined tolerances.”
“SRT, as an open source, secure and reliable transport is directly addressing today’s needs in broadcast,” said Ray Thompson, Director of Market Solutions for Broadcast and Media at Avid. “With SRT, enabling field contribution, remote collaboration and cloud production delivering from anywhere to Avid Production environments is now possible and affords significant cost savings and flexibility.”
“SRT open source has rapidly evolved based on the needs and the contributions of the community,” said Marc Cymontkowski, VP, Product Development, Cloud, Haivision. “It is great to see so many broadcast vendors taking part in our testing event and working together to address a common industry challenge.”
