Open Broadcast Systems Releases High-performance SRT Implementation

Open Broadcast Systems has released a high-performance SRT implementation in its encoders and decoders. This implementation has been developed fully in-house using modern software-development techniques.

By adding SRT support to its encoders and decoders, the company can now bridge SDI and ST-2110 environments on the ground, with cloud processing environments that use the SRT protocol. SRT support sits alongside the company’s support for Zixi and RIST, allowing customers to use a wide range of industry supported formats.

The implementation has been extensively tested against numerous third-party products for interoperability.

“Many content providers are using the SRT protocol to send and receive video over the internet,” said Kieran Kunhya, Founder and CEO of Open Broadcast Systems. “By creating a highly sophisticated in-house implementation, we are able to provide the highest reliability possible for our customers.”
