We see increased support from operators worldwide for the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol as a source input in addition to more traditional options such as satellite or playout on site. SRT has proven itself as a reliable IP-based transport protocol in recent years. To facilitate this, we replaced the on-site playout server Proximus for a fully redundant SRT delivery. The streams originate from a GRIDSHOT® playout operated 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.
