SRT, which stands for Secure, Reliable Transport, is a video
streaming technology developed by Haivision that can
deliver the best quality live video over the worst networks.
It accounts for packet loss, jitter, and fluctuating bandwidth,
maintaining the integrity and quality of your video. SRT has
a number of key features that make it a better choice for
video transport over the internet:
• Media Agnostic: SRT is audio/video format agnostic,
meaning it can transport any type of codec, resolution or
frame rate. This is important because it can future proof
your workflows by working transparently with MPEG- 2,
H.264 and HEVC.
• Low Latency Transport: SRT’s latency is configurable
to accommodate a user’s deployment conditions. SRT
leverages proprietary real-time IP communications
development to extend traditional network error recovery
practices. SRT is fast – it delivers media with a fraction
of the latency introduced by TCP/IP, while offering speed
without the disadvantage of standard UDP transmission.
• Firewall Traversal Made Easy: With flexibility to
accommodate different network configuration scenarios,
SRT is firewall friendly. An encoder can call the decoder,
the decoder can call the encoder and both can “meet” on
the network, thus minimizing the need for IT intervention.
• End-to-End Video Workflow: SRT is a compact,
optimized, self-contained library, allowing for ease of
integration into a variety of applications running on a
range of Haivision platforms from embedded systems to
Haivision SRT is integrated across Haivision’s technologies –
from encoders, through gateways, transcoders, and media
management systems, and to our decoders, set-top boxes,
soft players, and mobile applications. This helps bring you the
advantages of SRT while avoiding the frustration of dealing
with complex workflow compromises needed when working
with multiple vendors.
Low Latency Video Delivery Across the Public Internet Is Achievable
You don’t have to stand by and watch latency ruin your
live-streamed video events. With the right planning and
technology choices, video system designers have the tools
and options available to build high-quality, low-latency live
video streaming workflows for delivery over the internet –
even for the most mission critical or interactive scenarios
found in broadcast, remote collaboration, enterprise live
events, defense and many other scenarios.
