Taking the next step in its strategy to make professional Internet media transport more open
Stockholm, Sweden – Net Insight today joins the SRT Alliance, endorsing interoperable professional media transport and will participate in a NAB 2019 panel about leveraging SRT and cloud broadcast services to accelerate production in the Microsoft Azure ecosystem.
High quality professional media transport over the Internet is maturing rapidly, creating the need for open ecosystems in which multiple vendors can interoperate. SRT is a free open source video transport protocol and technology stack that is available for anyone to use, today endorsed and implemented by many vendors in the industry.
“SRT has a large following and is implemented in everything from encoders and decoders to cloud platforms such as Microsoft Azure,” says Love Thyresson, Head of Internet Media Transport at Net Insight. “Joining the SRT Alliance is in line with our strategy to embrace open technology for transporting professional high-quality media content over the Internet.”
As part of embracing SRT, Net Insight is joining more than 190 other members in the SRT Alliance, an organization with the mission to facilitate the adoption of SRT.
“We are very happy to see Net Insight, one of the pioneers of reliable Internet streaming of professional media content, joining the SRT Alliance,” says Sylvio Jelovcich, SRT Alliance Leader and Vice President of Global Alliances, Haivision. “It is yet another proof point for the value of industry partnerships and collaboration as well as open protocols and technology stacks.”
