Hiscale Joins SRT Alliance With Its Elastic Transcoder FLICS

Hiscale integrates SRT

Hiscale, specialists in high-performance hybrid video transcoding solutions, announced they joined the SRT Alliance, the open-source initiative dedicated to overcoming the challenges of low-latency video streaming.

“By implementing the SRT protocol into FLICS, our hyper-scalable Elastic Transcoding Cluster, we can securely receive or transport streams over unreliable networks to process them on-premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment,“ said Tilo Skomudek, CEO at Hiscale. “Especially in cloud-centric workflows, using the FLICS transcoding platform, we see it is crucial to have a reliable and secure transport protocol to handle network jitter. This is why we support the SRT Alliance and have chosen to implement SRT in our product.”

With a state-of-the-art architecture and support for commonly required codecs and formats, Hiscale’s transcoding solution FLICS excels with functionality, performance, cost-efficiency and flexibility. For customers and partners, content owners and media companies, FLICS enables flexible business models with cloud-based, local or hybrid processing and CapEx or OpEx licensing models.

“With the SRT Alliance, Hiscale has joined an industry movement that is improving the way the world streams video,” said Sylvio Jelovcich, vice president of global alliances at Haivision. “We are very pleased to see more and more SRT Ready solutions, like FLICS, coming to market, helping build out the SRT ecosystem, each with their unique solution.”
