Join us tomorrow!
Tomorrow evening at 7 pm PT, we will be producing and broadcasting an event (the event will be announced formally tomorrow) that will incorporate a new technology in the world of broadcast.
SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) as defined by the biggest company behind the technology, Haivision, is as follows:
Originally developed and pioneered by Haivision, SRT stands for Secure Reliable Transport. SRT is an open source video transport protocol and technology stack that optimizes video streaming performance across unpredictable networks. With secure streams and simplified firewall traversal, SRT delivers the best quality video over the worst networks.
Tomorrow's broadcast we are utilizing this technology from a park in a small Eastern Washington town using cell service as our internet source. The SRT stream will be beamed back to our studio here in Wenatchee, where the actual broadcast will be originated.
The ability to broadcast over a network that is can be very unstable, that of a cell network, is what make using this transport protocol more and more special, but it also has the ability to be very low latency. Our test leading up to now have shown latency of a max of 2 seconds in the worst of conditions with an average of just under 1 second.
This is a big deal because it means we will also be able to the show tomorrow in near real time from out of the studio!
Tomorrow's production will be a single camera production as we focus on the streaming aspect, but everything except audio and the camera work will come out of our studio. Graphics, playbacks, sponsors and the stream itself.
So I welcome all of you to join us, either here on our website, on our Facebook page or our YouTube page to check out this first of many event utilizing this technology in remote areas! Come and see the Skeeterbuggins Difference!
