Haivision Systems. a provider of mission-critical, real-time video networking and visual collaboration solutions, has announced the latest developments for the SRT open-source video streaming protocol at IBC.
During the show, Haivision announced the release of SRT 1.5 with new features to meet the growing need for decentralised remote workflows. The company also announced that Canon has joined the SRT Alliance, a collaborative community of over 575 broadcast industry leaders and developers striving to achieve lower latency video transport over the internet by continuously improving the SRT transport protocol and technology stack.
Canon will leverage SRT to enhance the interoperability of its video broadcast equipment, devices, and cloud services, which are widely used for streaming and live broadcasting, and make content distribution more convenient for its customers.
“With the increasing demand for remote production, there is a growing need for efficient, high-quality, low latency delivery in network workflows,” said Hiroto Okawara, Unit Executive, Image Solutions Business Unit, Canon Inc. “By joining the SRT Alliance and strengthening our systems by linking SRT protocol-compliant devices and cloud services with Canon’s video equipment, we believe we can respond to customer needs in creating and delivering low latency, high-quality, and secure images.”

Originally developed by Haivision, SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) is an open-source video transport protocol that optimises real-time streaming across unpredictable networks. The new features implemented in SRT 1.5 are designed to enhance the transport of live video over the public internet and improve decentralised workflows for broadcast production, remote contribution, and content distribution.

“SRT continues to fuel the decentralised remote productions that many broadcasters have implemented in recent years in order to remotely present low latency, high-quality video in today’s market,” commented Pablo Hesse, VP of Strategic Initiatives, Haivision. “These new features and improvements ensure that users can depend on SRT to successfully transport video with more stability and reliability over unstable networks than ever before.”
