Evertz has announced the integration of reliable internet stream transport (RIST) to its portfolio of file-based products, including Mediator-X and Overture Playout.
Mediator-X is a unified file-based operations platform for content supply chain and playout automation solutions, while Overture Playout is a linear playout solution used across the globe by industry-leading media enterprises.
RIST (VSF TR06) is an interoperable standard for transporting live video over unmanaged networks, developed jointly by a group of experts and built on top of existing RFC standards.
The integration allows Overture to transmit and receive reliable video transport streams across unmanaged networks. The Overture platform with RIST includes support for high bit rate mezzanine level bit rates up 150+ Mb/s, enabling the platform to be used for a wide range of broadcast applications.
Evertz technical product manager Martin Whittaker said: “The integration and deployment of RIST (VSF TR06) within the Mediator and Overture platforms is yet another important step for the industry as we transition to IP and Cloud-based playout solutions, and reaffirms Evertz’s commitment to interoperable standards.”
