Rivet is our application to help producers bring in remote guests to their live and on-demand shows. For the latest installment of our How To series, we bring in a UltraStudio Mini 3G from BlackMagic Design. UltraStudio Monitor 3G supports broadcast quality 10 bit professional SDI and HDMI monitoring and allows for the world’s smallest 3G-SDI and HDMI video playback from your Thunderbolt 3 laptop or desktop computer for use with any and all of your Rivet streams.
Rivet allows you to reach the widest possible contribution audience from anywhere around the globe. Your guest contributors can get a link that will open on almost any device (iOS, Android, MacOS or Windows)
The app is built on the open-source protocol SRT. It is a codec agnostic UDP Transport protocol created to deal with network congestion in order to help solve those 1st mile problems that come from less than ideal internet locations. Most importantly, Rivet offers secure authentication & advanced encryption standard options of 128, 192 & 256 encryption.
