Haivision has announced that its secure reliable transport (SRT) technology is now available at no additional charge on all Makito X Series encoders and decoders, providing video transport over the Internet.

SRT optimises video streaming performance across unpredictable Internet networks, where packet loss, jitter and bandwidth fluctuations can severely affect the viewing experience. By combining end-to-end security, resiliency and dynamic endpoint adjustment, SRT was created to tame common Internet streaming challenges by detecting network conditions in real time and realigning the stream to deliver the highest quality video to viewers.

"Makito X with SRT delivers the cleanest HD video over the dirtiest networks," said Peter Maag, CMO at Haivision. "We debuted SRT at IBC 2013, where it allowed us to continuously stream from a hotel to the show floor over highly congested networks without special network accommodations. Now, we're harnessing SRT within our Makito X Series to help customers successfully stream video in any Internet environment."
