First released in October of 2018 with a limited feature set, the Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST) simple profile offered the first industry approach to a best-in-class live video and audio transport over the open Internet with minimal latency and high reliability. Today, many commercially available products using RIST exist in the marketplace. The next step in the evolution of streaming media transport is the upcoming release of the RIST Main Profile.

The Main Profile builds upon the features of the Simple Profile to provide backwards compatibility, while opening the door for full-scale adoption across the Internet. This paper will provide a sneak peak of the technology being considered for ratification by the RIST working group, as well as the applications behind why the technology is commercially viable.
