Kaltura joins SRT Alliance

November 29, 2017

The SRT Alliance, an open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming, has announced that 33 new members have joined the initiative, the latest being video technology provider, Kaltura.

Now with 70 members, the SRT Alliance’s rapid growth is a strong indication that open source SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) is becoming a standard for low latency, secure, reliable streaming over the Internet, a natural alternative to RTMP. Many SRT Alliance members have already deployed SRT ready solutions on the market, and several others are developing and contributing to the SRT open source project to enhance the technology stack.

“Kaltura’s flexible platform is protocol agnostic, and yet we joined the SRT Alliance because we believe that SRT is the future of video streaming, offering our customers a better viewing experience at a lower cost,” said Yaron Reichert, director of product, video infrastructure at Kaltura. “Having an open source protocol that is addressing the issues of secure, low latency, reliable video over the Internet, will allow us to provide our customers with the utmost flexibility.”

“The adoption of SRT and the excitement in the industry about the technology and the alliance has been overwhelming,” says Sylvio Jelovcich, vice president of Global Alliances at Haivision. “As they say, there is power in numbers. The SRT Alliance has grown more than 80 per cent since IBC 2017 and we are well on our way to making SRT a standard.”
