The fastest-growing open-source streaming project: SRT turns 1

It’s been just over a year since Haivision and Wowza teamed up at the 2017 NAB Show to announce the founding of the SRT Alliance and the open-source availability of the SRT™ (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol.

In that time, SRT has grown tremendously, with the alliance now boasting over 100 members. At this year’s NAB show, both Haivision and Wowza discussed SRT’s growth, how it’s being used today and what the future of SRT might look like.

Enabling the delivery of secure, high-quality and low-latency video across the public internet—even over suboptimal networks—SRT is now being implemented across a diverse range of use cases. Here’s a look at how SRT has grown over the past year.
