SRT Alliance announces 2021 SRT InterOp Plugfest
June 17, 2021
The SRT Alliance, the open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming, today announced that this year’s SRT InterOp Plugfest will take place from Monday, June 21 – Friday, June 25. The annual event will kick off with a webinar featuring a special guest speaker from AWS Elemental, at 11am EST/5pm CET on June 21.
The SRT InterOp Plugfest provides a unique opportunity for participants to virtually engage and collaborate in testing with vendors across the industry to confirm their solution’s SRT compatibility. By testing and validating interoperability with SRT, developers can achieve “SRT Plugged” status.
During the Plugfest kick-off webinar, Andy Robinson, Senior Solutions Architect at AWS Elemental, will discuss the AWS experience with SRT and the impact its adoption has had for AWS Elemental. Other speakers will include Suso Carrillo, Director of the SRT Alliance, and Mahmoud, J. Al-Daccak, CTO & EVP product development, Haivision.
Haivision will provide SRT infrastructure for the Plugfest, including access to streams from Makito X4 video encoders and decoders, and SRT Gateways will be deployed in the public cloud of the participants’ choosing, including AWS. Participants can also request a free trial of the new Haivision Hub to use in interoperability tests for the duration of the Plugfest.
Last year’s Plugfest saw over 40 leading broadcast and streaming vendors—including Sony, Avid, and Telestream—successfully test interoperability between products, services, and solutions that support SRT. In all, more than 700 product compatibilities were confirmed.
