VidTrans20 is being held at the Marina del Rey Marriott in Los Angeles, CA, February 25 to 27.

Hosted by the Video Services Forum (VSF), VidTrans provides an opportunity for television professionals to explore the latest IP media technologies and speak directly with key technology providers and users from around the world. The theme of this year’s conference, “Delivering the Benefits of IP for Media Production”, focuses on innovative types of IP networking and video technologies and includes multi-vendor demonstrations of RIST Main Profile, which builds on the features of the RIST Simple Profile in a vendor-independent way.

Approximately a dozen technology providers are participating in the live interoperability demonstrations of the RIST protocol on-site and via the public Internet. Real-time, contribution-quality video streams are being exchanged securely, with top-of-the-line encryption over the public Internet between Marina del Rey and eight remote locations around the world using the upcoming VSF TR-06-02 RIST Main Profile. The demonstrations are using Cobalt’s 9971 multiviewer to combine broadcast quality signals via secured RIST Main Profile tunnels and then are using a Cobalt 9992-ENC to publish the content in 4K to YouTube in real time.
