The IP encoders and decoders feature RIST (Reliable Internet Stream Transport), a protocol for interoperable low latency contribution quality video via unmanaged networks.
RIST enables different vendors to communicate and transfer live content over any IP network, including the Internet.
Open Broadcast Systems latest version of its RIST-enabled encoder and decoder software sees latency reduced to one of the lowest in the industry, it claims. With an end-to-end latency of just sixty milliseconds (at 1080p60), it is the lowest currently achieved for an encoder/decoder pair using Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) IT hardware. It is also one of the lowest latencies achievable in the industry across any full-frame contribution encoder and the vendor says it’s able to achieve this with no reduction in picture quality.
Kieran Kunhya, Managing Director, 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.”
