Many PTZ cameras such as the PTZOptics Move SE and Move 4K include direct support for SRT. This allows users to send SRT video directly from their camera without the need for an additional encoder. 

Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) is a video transport protocol that optimizes streaming performance across unpredictable networks, such as the internet. Developed by Haivision, SRT is designed to provide secure, low-latency video transmission, making it an ideal solution for remote production environments.

In remote production, high-quality, real-time video transmission is crucial. SRT addresses the common challenges faced in this context by ensuring: Low Latency: SRT minimizes delays, allowing for real-time interactions between remote and central production locations. Security: With built-in encryption, SRT ensures that video streams are protected from unauthorized access. Reliability: SRT’s error correction capabilities help maintain video quality even over unstable networks.

SRT minimizes latency through its efficient data transfer protocols, enabling real-time video communication. This is crucial for remote production, where delays can disrupt the flow of live broadcasts.

Yes, SRT includes built-in encryption to protect video streams from unauthorized access, ensuring that your content remains secure during transmission.

Yes, SRT features advanced error correction mechanisms that help maintain high video quality even over networks with varying stability, ensuring consistent and reliable video delivery.

SRT leverages public internet infrastructure, reducing the need for costly satellite links or dedicated networks. This makes it a cost-effective solution for high-quality remote production.

SRT is highly flexible and can be integrated with a wide range of hardware and software tools, including popular production systems like vMix, OBS, and various encoding and decoding devices.

SRT is ideal for various remote production scenarios, including live sports broadcasts, news coverage, corporate events, music concerts, and more. Its ability to provide high-quality, low-latency video makes it suitable for any live event that requires remote production capabilities.

SRT Workflow

Capture and Encode

During this initial stage, video content is captured from cameras and other sources at the remote location. The captured feeds are then encoded using SRT-compatible encoders to prepare them for secure and efficient transmission over the internet. This step is crucial for ensuring that the video quality is preserved and ready for transport with minimal latency.

  • Capture Feeds
  • Encode Video
  • Prepare for Transmission

Secure Transmission

Once the video feeds are encoded, they are transmitted over the internet using the SRT protocol. SRT’s encryption and error correction features ensure that the video streams are secure and reliable, maintaining high quality even over unstable network conditions. This stage focuses on the seamless and secure delivery of video content to the central production facility.

  • Encrypt Data
  • Error Correction
  • Transmit Securely

Receive and Produce

At the central production facility, the incoming SRT streams are decoded and integrated into the production workflow. This includes switching between different video feeds, adding graphics, and mixing audio to create the final broadcast-ready content. The produced content can then be distributed to various platforms, ensuring a smooth and professional output for viewers.

  • Decode Streams
  • Integrate Workflow
  • Produce Content

The Value of SRT

This SRT workflow ensures secure, reliable, and low-latency transmission of video content from remote locations to a central production facility. It allows for high-quality live production, reducing the need for expensive on-site setups and enhancing operational efficiency and flexibility.
