Zixi, the developer of solutions for live broadcast-quality video over any-IP, and architect of the Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP), has announced that strategic partner KT Corporation streamed the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Live event from the UK on August 11th using the SDVP for the worldwide delivery.
Galaxy Unpacked was the launch event to “unfold” smartphone innovations that change users’ daily lives with promising revolutionary experiences when cell owners didn’t even know anything could be better. The Galaxy innovation presentations were mirrored by the extensive network reach and capacity that KT Corporation delivers with guaranteed performance and superior client service from a fast and responsive organisation. Focused on the needs of corporate enterprises, the number one Korean telco offers 28 Global Data/IP PoPs in 12 Countries and over 2Tbps of International IP backbone.
In partnership with KT, the SDVP is used to deliver ultra-low latency, error free transport over IP networks that is critical to service providers contributing and delivering live video over unmanaged IP networks. The Zixi protocol is a resilient congestion and network-aware protocol that adjusts to varying network conditions and employs patented, dynamic Forward Error Correction techniques for error-free video transport over IP with 99.9999% uptime at minimal latency. It provides best-in-class security with DTLS and AES encryption, allows for protected multicast transport, provides bandwidth efficiency and enables encoder backpressure. Zixi’s ZEN Master control plane provides the ability to manage and monitor stream deployments across this complex delivery network to ensure broadcast-quality content delivery. With the SDVP’s robust suite of analytics through the Intelligent Data Platform (IDP) that gathers billions of datapoints a day, users can garner more insight for affiliates while maintaining visibility and increasing data telemetry throughout the distribution ecosystem.
“Zixi, and KT have innovation in our common DNA” said Eunice Park, CRO, Zixi. “This partnership allows each of us to individually showcase our strengths, and together is an unmatched offering.”
