Prevent Jitter & Packet Loss on an Unstable Network with SRT

SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) brings the best-quality live video over even the most unpredictable networks. It accounts for packet loss, jitter and fluctuating bandwidth, maintaining the integrity and quality of your stream. Benefits include:

  • Pristine Quality: Provides professional, high-grade video across any network.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Replaces expensive satellite networks or rigid MPLS networks with the more affordable and flexible internet.
  • Operational Flexibility: Allows you to deliver two-way, interactive video from anywhere with an internet connection.
  • Low Latency: Enables real-time IP communications as fast as UDP with the reliability of TCP/IP.
  • Media-Agnostic: SRT is merely a wrapper around your content—be it MPEG-2, H.264 or even HEVC.
  • Secure: Industry-standard encryption for security over the Internet.

Wowza Streaming Engine can both ingest and deliver an SRT stream.

Here is our full step-by-step SRT tutorial where we use Wirecast as the encoder. You can use any encoder you want, but it must support SRT.
