Published On: 4 October 2021

Zest Technologies is proud to add their support as a dedicated member of the SRT Alliance, the open-source initiative overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming.

The SRT Alliance, founded by Haivision in April 2017, already has more than 500 members. Its mission is to overcome the challenges of low-latency live streaming by supporting the collaborative development of SRT (Secure Reliable Transport), the fastest growing open-source streaming project. SRT is a free open-source video transport protocol and technology stack originally developed and pioneered by Haivision, which enables the delivery of high-quality and secure, low-latency video across the public internet.

“All of us at Zest have been strong proponents for the adoption of SRT since its inception,” says Lorna Garrett, Managing Director of Zest Technologies. “When we formed Zest earlier this year, officially signing on to the Alliance was vital to our strategic mission to ensure our customers maintain their competitive edge through the use of the latest and best solutions and industry standards. SRT implementation into the solutions we provide is critical to many of our broadcast and media customers, and our team is well positioned to provide them with the advice and support they need in this area.”

“By being part of the SRT Alliance, we can share with our customers the expertise and information they require about the needed SRT technical standards,” says Zest’s Technology Manager, Osman Sen-Chadun. “In addition, we can share with them details of future enhancements and changes, allowing them to plan for advancements in their offerings. In turn, we share our learnings with other Alliance members to aid in the continuous improvement of the SRT protocol. It’s all about improving the industry for all.”
