Zixi Broadcaster

The Zixi Broadcaster serves as a central hub for management, processing, and distribution of content in various formats. The Zixi Broadcaster Platform, available as a service running on Premise on a Zixi Appliance or as a CloudService(SaaS), accepts encoded video from Zixi Feeder allowing users to manage, store, re-format and route video to various targets, including Zixi Receiver embedded partner HW or SW (Zixi EcoZystem partners), Content Delivery Networks (CDN), or delivered to PCs, tablets and mobile devices, set top boxes with Zixi Reciever built in. Zixi can also transcode and deliver RTMP or HLS in various bit rates and protocols.

The platform provides video transport management and distribution specifically designed to meet the requirements of broadcasters, sports networks, and video distribution service providers. When used together, Zixi Feeder/Broadcaster Platform/Receiver provide content-aware error correction, bandwidth shaping, and real-time feedback of streaming status enabling content producers to economically transmit HD video over commodity internet connections to support live events, contribution, distribution, ENG news workflows, and OTT workflows.

The benefits of using Zixi Broadcaster include:
  • Cloud or On-Premise deployment options
  • Transcoding and transmuxing capabilities
  • Record Content
  • VOD capabilities
  • Distribution over any distance
  • Secure
  • Reliable and Proven
  • Lower Cost
  • Easy Deployment
  • Scalable

Zixi Broadcaster supports the following capabilitie
  • Enables robust content delivery over IP - communicates with Zixi Feeder and Zixi Receiver over UDP-based, video-optimized protocols on private and public IP networks for maximal quality at a predictable latency
  • Adaptive Bit Rate - Dynamically adjusts stream rate to adapt to changing network conditions, using unicast or multicast, to meet specific application requirements
  • Transcoding - transcodes to a variety of different profiles and bit rates
  • Format conversion - supports Internet protocols: HLS/HDS/MPEG-DASH/RTMP/FLV
  • Streaming - multi-format support:
  • UDP - including MPEG-TS re-multiplexing (for professional IRDs)
  • RTP - RTP streaming + SMPTE2022 FEC
  • Zixi - with support in Bonded link input
  • Recording - store as an MPEG-TS file.
  • Time-shifting - Delay when stream will be sent out
  • File transfer - Accelerated and secure file transfers delivered at wire speed + accelerated HTTP delivery including optimized playback of HLS and HDS over UDP
  • VOD - stored files can be sent in multiple formats
  • Clustering and load balancing - provide continuous uptime
  • Transport Stream Analyzer - MPEG-TS ETSI TR 101-290 analyzer
  • Monitoring - captures network and content specific statistical information in real-time
  • Easy to use Web GUI for monitoring and management
  • Supports many to many and any to any: gateway platform between UDP (unicast/multicast), Zixi protected stream (unicast/multicast), RTMP, or other supported formats
