The Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST) Forum, responsible for driving adoption of the Reliable Internet Stream Transport protocol has added seven members.

RIST forum 6Dec2019Created to drive the adoption of RIST for low-latency live video over unmanaged networks, the RIST Forum is a group of technical experts from across the broadcast industry that champions the use of the RIST as a highly effective method for interchanging video between different vendors over any infrastructure. It was originally created as an activity group within the Video Services Forum.

The consortium notes that contemporary video transport is subject to loss due to the inconsistency of internet performance over time and across the world. RIST is an interoperable protocol for low latency video contribution via unmanaged networks, including the internet and there is already a range of compatible IP video delivery equipment.

The members of the consortium aim to create an industry-wide, interoperable transport solution that can be implemented by any vendor into its equipment. The new recruits include Cerberus Tech, TheLIVE.agency, Shair Broadcast Technology, Stream Station, Team Stream Live, Videon and video compression leader V-Nova.

Commenting on joining the consortium, Chip Pettit, CEO, Stream Station said: “It is important in the coming years that the broadcast industry develops a coherent united approach to video delivery in order to keep pace with technological innovations. The RIST protocol offers a consistent standard that delivers across an increasingly complex network.”
