Sony has launched Version 3.0 firmware update for the BRC-X400, SRG-X400 and SRG-X120 cameras, which will support the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol, bringing high-quality video transmission with low latency in a wide range of applications across remote production, seminars, live events, house of worship and more.

Earlier this year, Sony joined the SRT alliance, which offers an open-source protocol that combines encryption, packet loss recovery and jitter prevention technologies to preserve video stream quality and integrity. SRT harnesses latest developments in real-time IP communications, enhancing conventional network error recovery methods to deliver extremely stable, low-latency media streams.
Additionally, the latest update supports Sony’s unique Adaptive Rate Control function, designed to provide a more stable connection, optimized for the network environment and available bandwidth by controlling bitrate based on fluctuation of bandwidth.
This update also supports RTMP/RTMPS (Real Time Messaging) Protocol, allowing the cameras to directly stream live videos onto social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook through a simple and quick connection.
