AWS Elemental MediaConnect now supports the Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST) standard. Using the RIST protocol, you can transport live video with low latency and high resilience to packet loss. This additional transport option for MediaConnect offers you more flexibility for contributing broadcast streams to the AWS Cloud for processing, and for bringing streams back on-premises using any device that supports RIST.

AWS Elemental MediaConnect is a reliable, secure, and flexible transport service for live video that enables broadcasters and content owners to build live video workflows and securely share live content with partners and customers. MediaConnect helps customers who run 24x7 TV channels or stream live events transport high-value live video streams into, through, and out of the AWS Cloud in a fraction of the time and cost of satellite or fiber services. MediaConnect can function as a standalone service or within a larger video workflow that includes other AWS services.
