Accommodate hot-standby redundancy SRT to operator Proximus

We see increased support for the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol as a source input in addition to the current traditional options such as satellite or playout on site. The reason for this new development is that SRT has proven itself as a reliable IP based transport protocol in recent years. For one of our customers we replaced the playout server on site at Proximus for an SRT stream. This stream originates from a GRIDSHOT® playout that is running in the cloud.

With GRIDSHOT® playout in the cloud, our customers are able to distribute their channel in a cost effective way using IP based protocols such as SRT. This is more efficient than renting satellite capacity or installing a playout on site at each operator. In addition, we can forward the channel to a large IP distribution network, called Media Gateway. If you supply the channel to multiple providers, this network can be more cost effective than setting up an SRT for each party.

In conclusion, there are several methods for distributing your channel. For more information, please contact our GRIDSHOT® service team. The contact details can be found on the contact page.
