RIST And J2K Ultra-Low Latency Demos To Highlight VidTrans 2019 Conference

The upcoming VidTrans 2019 conference, at the Marina del Rey Marriott in Los Angeles, CA, February 26 to 28, will play host to two major industry interoperability demonstrations of the latest technologies for transporting video and audio over IP networks. One will feature RIST (Reliable Internet Stream Transport) technology and the use of the common Internet for content delivery and the other addresses the use of JPEG 2000 Ultra-Low Latency (J2K ULL) technology for content delivery across a live network.

The theme of this year’s conference is, “Delivering the Benefits of IP for Media Production” and will focus on the innovative types of IP networking and video technologies and their application both for long-haul video transport and for the production studio. In addition to technical sessions, the conference will also showcase some of the latest applications, technologies and products in its exhibit hall as well as provide abundant networking opportunities at our special events.

RIST technology will be demonstrated using real-time, contribution-quality video streams exchanged over the public Internet between Marina del Rey and a number of remote locations around the world. The emphasis will be on multi-vendor interoperability using VSF TR-06-01 (published in October, 2018), with close to a dozen technology providers participating in the live demos, which will be conducted on-site and via the public Internet.

Like past VidTrans conferences, this year’s gathering will provide live interop demonstrations on the latest content delivery technology.

The J2K ULL demo will spotlight compressed content moving over a live network during the two-day conference. Technology providers ArtelEvertzGrass Valley and Media Links will also showcase compatible implementations of the VSF TR-01:2018 protocol (which was released this past June) in a live demonstration in the exhibit hall. This new version of the spec updates the widely-adopted TR-01 for new applications, including Ultra HD levels 1 and 2, HDR video and end-to-end latencies below 1 frame period for many implementations.

This year’s VidTrans conference will include a wide variety of technical sessions on the latest technologies for high-performance IP media networking.  Industry experts will present technical papers on a wide variety of topics related to video networking, IP transport and IP production.

Highlighting the conference will be two eagerly anticipated panel discussions: “Challenges and Solutions to the Rollout of 2110 Systems” and “Workflow Virtualization and Cloud-Based Systems – How to Design and Deliver”.  The preliminary conference program is available on the VSF site.

The VidTrans19 Conference will also include a number of social networking events, providing attendees the opportunity to interact with colleagues and industry peers. The exhibition hall and interop will be open Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 26 & 27 and offers an opening night reception on Tuesday.
