SipRadius partners with FOR-A for secure, low latency distribution and delivery at NAB New York


FOR-A Booth 822, Javits Center, 24 – 26 October: SipRadius is partnering with FOR-A to present a transformative approach to IP content transport and monitoring at NAB New York. SOAR-A, powered by SipRadius, is a high quality, very secure and ultra-low latency media processing and delivery platform.

This revolutionary solution is the world’s first implementation of realtime AV1 over WebRTC for optimized playback on any device. Illustrating the platform’s flexibility, it will also be shown carrying lossless, multi-bitrate realtime JPEG-XS streams and AV1 production encoding.

SOAR-A is a flexible approach to the IP world from FOR-A. For its encoding and transport offerings it has worked with leading media specialists SipRadius, which provides the powerful operating system and applications. Built on SipRadius’s CoralOS, software includes a transcoding engine, error correcting transport and a standalone media server.

Applications for SOAR-A, powered by SipRadius, include ultra-low latency WebRTC streaming, highly scalable streaming, and live monitoring and surveillance, as well as production content delivery. Users include broadcast, streaming, gaming, education, movies, sports and houses of worship.

The SipRadius software is drawn from its proven Coral Gateway system, already in use with major broadcasters and content providers. It is built on open standards, including RIST: Sergio Ammirata, the company’s chief scientist, was one of the leaders in the original development and continuing enhancement of the RIST protocol. Also inherent in the CoralOS operating system is military-grade, security and encryption, ensuring all content is protected at every stage.

“Our business is dedicated to high quality media processing, in flexible and versatile applications,” said Sergio Ammirata, chief scientist at SipRadius. “We are at the heart of the technology, with strategic collaborations including FOR-A, Fraunhofer Institute, MulticoreWare, Intel and Dektec among others. That allows us to drive innovation and push boundaries, meeting the real needs of the industry.

“This is our first opportunity to exhibit at NAB in New York, and we look forward to showing visitors the benefits of our involvement with FOR-A, and also talk about the other products we have developed to solve every challenge in delivering content today,” Ammirata added.

A comprehensive demonstration of SOAR-A will be on the FOR-A booth, 822, at NAB New York. More information on SipRadius products can be found at
