Zixi logo

Live Broadcast
Streaming over IP

 
Zixi is a proven network and video aware SW platform that enables the simple, economical, and secure delivery of broadcast quality video over the internet to any device over any distance. The world's top broadcast, digital content and video processing companies rely on the Zixi platform in a wide variety of use cases including:

  Live event production
  Primary contribution
  ENG news gathering
  Network monitoring, and broadcast distribution workflows
  Backup and disaster recovery

Contribution

Zixi enables broadcasters, media companies and content originators the ability to do content contribution at satellite and fiber operating metrics with internet based economics and availability.

Content contribution is the critical first step in the live video workflow, yet it remains a challenge for many who may not be able to use traditional contribution options due to cost or availability. Zixi solves those challenges with a cost effective contribution solution that enables live event and live linear customers to send content to and from practically anywhere in a simple and cost effective way.
 

Zixi does this by enabling real time streaming of broadcast quality content over an unmanaged IP network, including the public internet, at latencies, security and reliability comparable to satellite and fiber. This capability results in a significant reduction of the transmission costs compared with satellite and fiber alternatives while also lowering operational costs.

In addition, by using Zixi, content can be accessed anywhere a wired or wireless internet connection is present, enabling contribution of new content that can be used for entertainment, advertising and marketing purposes within a live broadcast or on a digital platform.

Zixi Contribution

Distribution

By leveraging Zixi for high quality distribution over IP, broadcasters, live event producers, and media companies realize significant cost, operational, and quality benefits. Zixi enables one to many distribution by leveraging a cloud or on premise Broadcaster to transcode, transmux incoming Zixi streams, and deliver over any distance, multiple bit rates and protocols to any device.

Robust Scalable Distribution Platform
When it comes to distribution, Zixi supports several capabilities including Adaptive Bit Rate streaming which dynamically adjusts stream rate to adapt to changing network conditions, using unicast or multicast, to meet specific application requirements. Zixi supports multiple-formats including MPEG-TS re-multiplexing (for professional IRDs), RTP - RTP streaming + SMPTE2022 FEC.

Production Simplified

Zixi enables media companies to deliver content from the venue, from any device (mobile, encoders, cameras), at broadcast quality, over any distance securely. Zixi can process content (transcoding, transmuxing), store content, and all at scale using built in clustering and load balancing. Zixi can then deliver those files in different bit rates and protocols to any device anywhere which helps broaden the reach while realizing cost reductions compared to fiber or satellite.
