Net Insight has added Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST) support to its Nimbra portfolio.
The media transport company is also taking a leading co-chair role in the collaborative RIST Forum.
A key industry initiative by the Video Services Forum (VSF), RIST provides an open specification (TR-06) for media transport over the internet and is available through Net Insight as open source.
RIST Forum co-chair and Net Insight head of product marketing Alexander Sandström said: “To create a truly open ecosystem there is a need for industry wide collaboration. The RIST Forum together with VSF provides a place for that collaboration to happen.
“Net Insight is now taking a leading co-chair role in the RIST Forum, to make sure that we continue leading the way when it comes to professional media transport over the internet.”
Net Insight head of internet media transport Love Thyresson added: “While proprietary technology plays an important role in an emerging market to accelerate innovation, the internet transport market is now mature enough to prioritise collaboration before incremental innovation.
“By not only implementing RIST but also making it open source, it becomes available to both our existing Nimbra users and to the entire industry. This simplifies adoption of RIST for everyone and further accelerates market interoperability.”
