As a member of the SRT Alliance, AJA plans to continue exploring how it can improve its streaming offerings for customers by integrating the latest evolutions that the open source technology has to offer into AJA tools like BRIDGE LIVE.
Developed in partnership with Comprimato, BRIDGE LIVE offers a comprehensive platform for live video streaming to a range of content delivery platforms with support for SRT and a host of other protocols. It builds upon the production proven approach of AJA’s HELO streaming device, while also including flexible multi-channel HD inputs and outputs, UltraHD input and output, and encoding, decoding, and transcoding between codecs including MPEG-TS, H.264, HEVC, and optional JPEG 2000 support, wide bit-rate options, ABR with ladder profiles, comprehensive metadata, and content redundancy. The device also enables simultaneous encoding/decoding to/from SDI. While streaming to CDNs for direct-to-audience delivery, BRIDGE LIVE can also deliver different streaming protocols and packages with ad markers, closed captions to partners for remote workflows, back-hauling broadcast signals, OTT, transcoding, and more.
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.
