Telstra Broadcast Services joins SRT Alliance
December 7, 2021
Telstra Broadcast Services (TBS), a global media services provider, has joined the SRT Alliance, a collaborative community striving to achieve lower latency internet video transport.
The SRT Alliance, founded by Haivision in April 2017, already has more than 500 members. Its mission is to overcome the challenges of low-latency live streaming by supporting the collaborative development of SRT (Secure Reliable Transport), the fastest growing open source streaming project. SRT is a free open source video transport protocol and technology stack originally developed and pioneered by Haivision, which enables the delivery of high-quality and secure, low-latency video across the public internet.
Head of Telstra Broadcast Services, Andreas Eriksson, added: “At TBS our goal is to provide broadcasters of any size the most flexible, cost effective and robust ways to manage their content. Our collaboration with the SRT Alliance and Haivision supports us in delivering the right solutions for broadcasters through driving new technologies, like the open-source video transport protocol. This tackles some of main issues our broadcast clients face when it comes to high-performance, low-latency, streaming in a secure and unfailing way across the public internet”.
The announcement follows TBS’s acquisition of MediaCloud in June 2021 and expansion into global broadcast capabilities and operations.
