In April 2022, Haivision closed the acquisition of Aviwest, an industry leader in mobile IP-based video contribution systems and a pioneer in the transmission of live video over cellular networks. The acquisition expanded Haivision’s video contribution solutions portfolio to include 5G transmission, mobile video contribution, and network bonding technology. Introducing SRT support to the Aviwest PRO, AIR, and RACK series now allows for interoperability with the complete Haivision product portfolio and other SRT-enabled solutions. This allows Aviwest devices to be used alongside other Haivision broadcast technology in a wide variety of broadcast production scenarios, including multi-camera remote production, cloud contribution and distribution, and collaborative decentralized workflows.
Originally developed by Haivision, SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) is an Emmy award-winning open-source video transport protocol that optimizes real-time streaming across unpredictable networks. Widely adopted by the media and entertainment industry, SRT provides television broadcasters with a secure and reliable solution for low-latency video contribution over the internet. SRT includes low-latency packet loss recovery and AES 128/256-bit encryption for end-to-end security.
Adding the SRT protocol for streaming over fixed IP networks to the two-time Emmy ® award- winning Aviwest Safe Stream Transport (SST) technology, designed for cellular transmission of high-quality live video, dramatically improves interoperability with live broadcast production equipment and remote production workflows that include a mix of mobile and wired video contribution.
