Telstra Broadcast Services has joined the SRT Aliiance. 

Founded in April 2017 by Haivision, the SRT Alliance now has over 500 members, with Telstra joining the likes of Sony and others

The SRT Alliance aims to covercome the challenges of low-latency live streaming by streaming by supporting the collaborative development offree open source video transport protocol and technology stack SRT (Secure Reliable Transport). SRT aims to enable the delivery of high-quality and secure, low-latency video across the public internet.

The move comes after Telstra acquired MediaCloud in June 2021, taking control of a suite of significant software-defined and cloud-based capabilities, including the Internet Delivery Network. Joining the SRT Alliance will complement a further push into the cloud.

Head of Telstra Broadcast Services Andreas Eriksson said: “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.”

Peter Maag, CMO & EVP of strategic partnerships at Haivision, added: “With the SRT Alliance, TBS is joining an industry movement to improve the way the world streams video. We’re pleased to see the SRT protocol being actively implemented by some of the world’s biggest broadcast and enterprise streaming workflows; as its adoption and industry-wide recognition continues to grow, becoming the de facto standard for low latency internet streaming.”
