Configuring Secure Reliable Transport (SRT)

Haivision's Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) streaming protocol is designed to provide reliable and secure end-to-end transport between two SRT-enabled devices (such as Makito X Series encoders and decoders) over a link which traverses the public Internet. For more information, see Secure Reliable Transport (SRT).

To create an SRT connection:

  1. Make sure the encoder and decoder are accessible from the public Internet by appropriate configuration of any firewalls.
  2. Follow the steps in Setting Up Streaming to set up the SRT stream and start the stream connection.

  3. Once you establish the SRT stream, check the statistics and make adjustments to finetune the stream. On the Output Streams page, click the Statistics button to see how the SRT stream is performing.
  4. Monitor the link statistics to see if the link is over-subscribed (and adjust the video encoder bitrate if it is).
    For example, use the Max Bandwidth and (Buffering) Latency values to set the encoder bitrates appropriately.
