German-based audio network specialist DirectOut and the Italian IT system-provider Vivivaldy have revealed that they are to use SRT for ViViD, which is a customised service that permits audio professionals to easily set-up remote productions using standard internet connections.
The two companies have joined the SRT Alliance in order to follow the strategy of providing easy and reliable remote production solutions.
SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) is a free open-source AV transport protocol and technology stack originally developed and pioneered by Haivision that enables the delivery of high-quality and secure, low-latency audio/video across the public internet. With over 450 members in the SRT Alliance and widespread industry adoption, SRT is the fastest-growing open-source streaming project.
Luca Di Chio, CEO of Vivivaldy, comments: “As Vivivaldy we’re proud to join the SRT Alliance to implement the open-source AV transport protocol into our VPN routers. We think it’s a way to bring additional value to our clients. As the three pillars of ViViD are simplicity, low latency and reliability, SRT helps us to guarantee a steady, glitchless audio transmission to open new scenarios and possibilities to live and broadcast streaming events via public internet infrastructures.”
Jan Ehrlich, CEO of DirectOut adds: “Reliability has always been an important principle for DirectOut. Our hardware is built to be solid and to grant high quality and the same concept stands for our AoIP implementations. The SRT Alliance follows the same approach of secure and reliable network transmission for maximum quality, so joining the alliance perfectly matches with our company goals.”
“With the SRT Alliance, DirectOut and Vivivaldy are joining an industry movement to improve the way the world streams audio and video,” says Jesús Carrillo, director of SRT Alliance at Haivision. “We’re pleased to see the SRT protocol being actively implemented by some of the world’s biggest broadcast and enterprise streaming workflows, as its adoption and industry-wide recognition continues to grow, becoming the de facto standard for low latency internet streaming.”
