Originally developed and pioneered by mission-critical, real-time video streaming and networking solutions provider Haivision, SRT enables the delivery of high-quality and secure, low latency video across the public internet. Haivision made the SRT protocol and supporting technology stack open source in 2017 and formed the SRT Alliance to support its adoption.
