IBC, Amsterdam, 4th September 2019 – The RIST Forum will be hosting a lunch and learn, followed by presentations and panel discussions on Monday 16th September at IBC 2019. The RIST Forum is an independent association focused on promoting the open, interoperable, and technically robust RIST protocol for the delivery of low-latency live video over unmanaged networks.

The session will give attendees the opportunity to learn more about RIST and its potential for live video delivery. Starting with a lunch and learn, where RIST experts will be on hand to discuss the forum and protocol, the day will also feature presentations and a panel discussion from Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elemental, Cobalt Digital, DVEO, Net Insight, Open Broadcast Systems, VideoFlow, and Zixi.

Topics will include the RIST Main Profile, encryption, high-end live media workflows, delivery of content to tens of millions of people using RIST, as well as how RIST and the cloud are transforming content distribution and the future of the format. 

“RIST is all about the combination of interoperability and innovation, giving the broadcast industry a simple yet highly effective method for interchanging professional signals between different vendors. RIST has the potential to solve a lot of the complexity with live media workflows.” 

Alexander Sandström

Forum Co-Chair, RIST

“This session is about educating attendees about RIST and its potential, helping them determine whether they should be implementing it in their own workflows. We are taking the same collaborative approach with the RIST day at IBC as the technical activity group has done when developing the RIST specification. Speakers and panelists are from a wide range of companies, and all sessions are interactive and gives everyone a chance to meet and discuss with the experts and innovators behind RIST.”

Jacob Kinsey

Forum Co-Chair, RIST
