At SMPTE 2019, Doug Shelton and Mikael Wånggren from our member, Net Insight, will present Live Cloud Ingest Using an Open Approach to RIST, SRT and Retransmission Protocols.
Based on the concept of Adaptive Repeat reQuest (ARQ), the Internet transport market has flourished in recent years with multiple solutions emerging on the market, all of which are aiming to solve the same challenge of moving professional media over the Internet and as a consequence into public cloud environments. While today a plethora of different solutions exists in the market, a few alternatives have separated themselves from the crowd in terms of either footprint and/or market buzz.
Two open approaches are emerging as leaders in this competitive landscape; SRT, backed by the SRT Alliance and RIST/TR-06, an industry collaboration through the Video Services Forum (VSF). In addition, several proprietary options already boost significant footprint and partner ecosystems. The session will explore the state of the Internet Transport market, what the current challenges are and what different mechanisms we have at our disposal to solve them.
