RIST SRT comparison demo open headend
A screenshot of the RIST and SRT demo

On this 18th of June in Geneva, Openheadend will be one of the guests at the EBU Network Technology Seminar. EBU is the annual meeting for broadcast experts dealing with IP infrastructure, and specialists dealing with broadcast media content. This is an event not to be missed, all registration information can be found here. We’ll be showing a comparison of error correction algorithms in a simulated congested network. The demo showcases a very clear difference.

Here are some details about how the demo works. France Télévisions‘s france:info channel is streamed from Paris to Geneva via SRT to an OpenHeadend virtual machine. The stream is duplicated locally and sent through a WAN emulator allowing to configure latency, jitter, and packet losses, using 4 protocols: plain RTP, FEC, SRT and RIST. The 4 signals are received by another OpenHeadend instance and the results are presented in a mosaic. We will publish a video on the blog after the event.
We hope to meet you in Geneva!

In order to encourage interoperability with other equipments for cost-effective Internet contribution, we have added support for the SRT protocol starting from our firmware version 10.1. We have just joined the SRT alliance to show our support of this promising technology.


In an effort to promote cost-effective Internet contribution for our customer, we have implemented the RIST protocol starting from our firmware version 10.1. We are fully committed to this technology and have just joined the RIST forum, which aims at accelerating the adoption of this promising technology.

Thank you all for visiting us at the NAB 19 in Las Vegas! We welcome in our team our new Field Application Engineer Cédric Bail for our customers in America. The new SRT and RIST demo was streaming BFM TV directly from France and received much attention, and not only from our French visitors.

Our team had a blast showing our visitors our new demos running on virtualized hardware using Proxmox VE. In addition to our playout demo we have been showing the previous year, we also demonstrated our mosaic and HLS packager.
