MONTREAL—The SRT Alliance has a new member, as Sony Imaging Products & Solutions has announced that it is joining other industry members in the effort to boost the SRT protocol.

The SRT Alliance was created in 2017 by Haivision as a collaboration among industry players to support the Secure Reliable Transport protocol to overcome the challenges of low latency live streaming.
