Telstra Broadcast Services (TBS), a leading global media services provider, today announced that it has joined the SRT Alliance, a collaborative community of industry leaders and developers striving to achieve lower latency internet video transport.
Today’s announcement follows TBS’s recent acquisition of MediaCloud in June 2021 and expansion into global broadcast capabilities and operations. Through that deal, TBS took control of a suite of significant software-defined and cloud-based capabilities, including the Internet Delivery Network. Being involved in the SRT Alliance complements TBS’ continuing expansion into cloud-based services; and enables TBS to provide much greater flexibility to broadcasters.
The Telstra Internet Delivery Network (IDN) platform is dedicated to the real-time delivery of high-quality media content and live broadcast streams to any registered endpoint, across contended networks such as the public internet.
Head of Telstra Broadcast Services, Andreas Eriksson, said: “Our collaboration with the SRT Alliance and Haivision supports us in delivering the right solutions for broadcasters through driving new technologies, like the open-source video transport protocol. This tackles some of main issues our broadcast clients face when it comes to high-performance, low-latency, streaming in a secure and unfailing way across the public internet”. BCS Bureau
