Open Broadcast Systems launches support for RIST

Encoders and decoders now support Reliable Internet Stream Transport protocol

Open Broadcast Systems has announced its range of IP encoders and decoders now support the Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST) protocol.

RIST is a protocol for interoperable low latency contribution quality video via unmanaged networks, including the internet. It is based on the Video Services Forum’s TR-06-1 technical recommendation document and the collaboration of all leading vendors and global broadcast operators. 

Kieran Kunhya, managing director, Open Broadcast Systems, commented: “RIST gives us a simple yet highly effective method for interchanging professional signals between different vendors. 

“We have aligned our existing retransmission product to comply with RIST as it is much simpler than alternatives. For this reason, we believe RIST will have wide adoption in the professional broadcast world.”
