Video, IP

IP Video encompasses any video that is distributed via your network. Internet protocol, or IP, is a set of standards for communicating over computer networks. IP Video devices can include cameras, hardware or software switchers, graphic workstations, and displays.

Types include:

ART: New adaptive protocol launched by Teradek in 2023. Much like SRT, ART offers AES encryption, multiple operation modes (for easy firewall traversal) and FEC. In fact, when there is network instability ART does a much better job with packet loss.

NDI, NDI|HX: NDI, developed by NewTek is a network protocol that enables audio, video, and metadata signals to be sent over standard networks in real-time. It is bidirectional, low latency, and can transmit video up to 4K and beyond.

RTP:  Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) is a network protocol for delivering audio and video over IP networks. RTP must be used with UDP and does not have any delivery mechanism

RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol) is a two-way communication protocol for low-latency, real-time audio, video, and data streaming over the Internet.

Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) is an application-level network communication system that transfers real-time data from multimedia to an endpoint device by communicating directly with the server streaming the data. 

Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) is an open-source video transport protocol designed by Haivision and promoted by the SRT Alliance. It uses end-to-end 128/256 bit AES encryption.

User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is a core communication protocol within the Internet Protocol (IP) suite used to send messages (transported as datagrams in packets) to other hosts on an IP network.
