Playbox Technology UK Ltd joins SRT Alliance

PlayBox Technology UK Limited has joined the SRT Alliance, the open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming.

The move comes as part of PlayBox Technology UK Limited’s overall strategy to increase the options and features available to broadcasters through open source initiatives. The SRT Alliance, founded by Haivision in April 2017, is focused on overcoming the challenges of low latency live streaming by supporting the collaborative development of the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol. SRT is a free open source video transport protocol and technology stack originally developed and pioneered by Haivision that enables the delivery of high-quality and secure, low-latency video across the public internet. With over 400 members in the SRT Alliance and widespread industry adoption, SRT is the fastest growing open source streaming project.

“PlayBox Technology UK Limited is incredibly proud to have joined the SRT Alliance, where we will work directly with our customers to implement SRT protocol in our broadcast and playout automation solutions. We’re all about giving our customers limitless options when it comes to their playout, and we’re immensely excited to see what the future holds for us as part of the SRT Alliance,” said Phillip Neighbour, Chief Operating Officer at PlayBox Technology UK Limited.

“With the SRT Alliance, PlayBox Technology UK Limited is joining an industry movement to improve the way the world streams video,” said Jesús (Suso) Carillo, Director SRT Alliance, Haivision. “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 defacto standard for low latency internet streaming.”
