Haivision Announces Play Pro, the Free SRT Player for Viewing Ultra Low Latency Video Streams


Haivision Play Pro enables broadcasters, streamers, and developers to monitor high performance SRT video streams on mobile devices anywhere over any network

Montreal, Canada - January 16, 2020 - Haivision, a leader in video streaming solutions, today announced Haivision Play Pro, a free mobile player from the developers of the SRT protocol. Now available for iOS devices in the App Store, Haivision Play Pro offers streamers, developers, and broadcasters a quick and easy way to watch and monitor SRT video streams from anywhere on a mobile device.

Haivision originally developed and open sourced the widely adopted SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol to support high performance streaming over any network. With Play Pro, the definitive player app for SRT streams, Haivision now makes it easier than ever for any organization to monitor low-latency video.

The new Haivision Play Pro app provides broadcasters with a simple and convenient way to monitor any feed or channel anywhere using the SRT protocol. Broadcast producers, directors, executives, and on-air talent can monitor contribution streams and view return feeds in the field, whether they are the live to air streams, feeds supporting remote interviews, or even teleprompter feeds directly from the editorial desk. The end-to-end latency achievable with Play Pro is less than half of a second, enabling high quality real-time interactivity.

With Play Pro, users can easily tune to an SRT stream or create and save channel lists that can be securely shared with team members needing access to a range of feeds. Furthermore, channel lists can be centrally managed ensuring that subscribed users are always able to access only the streams they need.

SRT is changing the way the world streams and our Play Pro app is the ideal player for anyone who needs to watch secure, low latency SRT streams on the go, said Marcus Schioler, Vice President Product Marketing, Haivision. Providing users with a premium SRT viewing experience anywhere, Play Pro is a must-have resource in every broadcaster's toolbox.

Haivision Play Pro provides the following features:

H.264 and HEVC playback

Support for low-latency encrypted SRT, UDP unicast or multicast, and HLS streams up to 4K/UHD 2160p60

SRT secure streaming with AES 128- or 256-bit encryption

Create and save custom channel lists for sharing by email or publishing to a network location to make simple channel lists available throughout the organization

Auto-updating of published channel lists

Stream video directly from your mobile device camera with SRT
