Zixi Releases A Commercially Available Implementation of RIST

Zixi has announced product availability for the emerging Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST) initiative being developed from members of the Video Services Forum — an international association comprised of service providers, users and manufacturers dedicated to interoperability, quality metrics and education for media networking technologies.

Zixi, continuing a long history of advocating for and adopting open standards such as MPEG-DASH, MMT, SMPTE 2022-2 and 2022-7 (RTP), have called on over twelve years of experience delivering solutions to prominent media companies, OEMs and service providers to be major contributors to the RIST Specification.

As an emerging standard in the early recommendation phase, which may gain traction over time within the customer community, the company has been participating and adding to the recommendation in order to guarantee future interoperability with clients. 

Without impacting the recommendation, the solution's enhanced RIST effectively combines forward error correction, retransmission and congestion avoidance. An addition to the Zixi Broadcaster, TR 101 Network Analytics, Content Quality Analytics, hitless failover for over 99.999 reliability, network bonding, the ubiquitous view and reporting that Zixi ZEN Master provides, and many more features from the company’s platform will be added.
