Zixi Broadcast HD Video Transmission over Public Internet and IP Networks…

​Zixi is a software-based platform enabling reliable transmission of broadcast-quality HD video globally over unmanaged internet connections and private IP networks. Zixi patented technology uses advanced error correction techniques to manage jitter, packet-loss and latency to ensure error-free video transmission. It is available as appliance, standalone installable or SDK for any platform. The growing number of partners building Zixi into their platforms is extending the Zixi standard for IP delivery. Zixi allows for mobile, embedded and on-premise solutions, complemented with cloud-based service platform. Unlike other protocols, Zixi provides fixed and predictable latency that can be sub-second worldwide.

Zixi Value:

Studio Quality – Transport flawless live broadcast-qualityvideo over standard, unmanaged Internet connections Quickest Setup – No change in current production workflow Significantly Reduces Cost compared to satellite and fiber Increases Revenue – Content providers can directly connect to subscribers

Zixi Protocol:

Network bonding Dynamic assessment of link quality Content-aware Bandwidth Optimization technology Dynamic de-jitter buffer and null bit sequence compression option Hybrid intelligent error correction mechanism: Content-aware Forward Error Correction (CA-FEC) Content-aware Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ) packet loss recovery Seamless Adaptive bitrate over UDP, unicast or multicast Support for all industry-standard video codecs and formats Built-in Encryption, Monitoring, stream analyzing and QoS statistics Full API for embedded integration by encoder, camera, decoder OEMs Fixed and predictable latency that can be sub-second worldwide Dynamic adaptive bit rate control with encoder backpressure feedback based on available bandwidth
