Zixi Moves Video from Protocol to Ecosystem

Zixi, the provider of scalable live broadcast-quality video over any IP network or protocol,  and developer of the Software Defined Video Platform (SDVP) will be demonstrating next-generation live streaming features and functionality at NAB 2023 (booth 3301) in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Zixi will be demonstrating a broad range of new product updates and live video delivery performance running over the Zixi Enabled Network. The ZEN consists of over 1000 media companies and 400 technology partners globally exchanging live video, accelerating new content acquisition, business models, and opportunities to reduce cost and generate revenue.

Zixi will give opportunities for attendees to learn from Zixi’s leadership team, integrated partners and top media companies. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn from relevant customer case studies highlighting at-scale video delivery for a wide range of applications such as live sports and news contribution, distribution to various platforms such as OTT, D2C and traditional partners, MVPDs and vMVPDs. At-scale contribution and primary distribution of content for major sports leagues that have adopted Zixi will be illustrated along with a demonstration of the dynamic Live Events Scheduler in ZEN Master.

As part of the exhibition, Zixi will highlight new and existing capabilities of the SDVP, including:

  • the scale and efficiency of Zixi Broadcaster v17 with improved processing capacity requiring 80% less compute than other industry options leading to cost reduction with up to 50% savings in egress cost for the same stream on other platforms;
  • support for deployments on ARM-based instances with savings on compute costs, reduced carbon footprint, and improved resource utilisation and updated architecture yield up to 200% throughput increase to 1Gbps per core.

The broad partnership with AWS will be on display, including integration of the SDVP in the AWS wavelength zone allowing customers to harness the power of 5G and enable widescale adoption of low latency 5G MEC architecture. The orchestration and monitoring of AWS Elemental MediaConnect and MediaLive channels utilising the ZEN Master control plane will be demonstrated live in both the Zixi and AWS booths at the show. ZEN Master also supports the management of JPEG XS, CDI flows, Elemental Link devices and is available in the AWS Marketplace for both public and private offer contracts.

Partners in the Zixi Partner Village will include:

Ant Media (Ant Media), whose Ant Media Server (AMS) has integrated Zixi to help gaming and broadcasters by providing adaptive, ultra-low latency streaming by using WebRTC for sub .5 seconds latency.

Evertz Microsystems (Evertz) – Zixi and Evertz users can leverage the natively integrated XPS Live Video Encoder Series, a real-time high quality and low latency video encoder and decoder module for live streaming, cloud-based, REMI / remote production, OTT, and on-demand applications including the MMA10G-TRXS-5G and MMA10G-TRXS-HC standalone HEVC/H.264 encoder and decoders with ZEN Master support for orchestration and management.
