Zixi Powers Broadcast-Quality HD Over IP
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Zixi as a corporate sponsor. Zixi software enables broadcasters, streaming-media companies, enterprises, and video-equipment manufacturers to use unmanaged IP networks for their content, redefining the cost of acquiring and distributing HD video.
“Zixi joined SVG because sports-video technology is leading the way to the Internet for contribution as well as distribution,” says CEO Dennis Albano. “Zixi looks forward to working with the thought leaders who are spearheading this revolution in the way sports are produced and consumed by viewers all over the world.”
Based in Waltham, MA, Zixi facilitates ingest, transport, and delivery of studio-quality HD video on the Internet. According to the company, Zixi’s patented technology eliminates the problems inherent in unmanaged IP networks and delivers high-quality video with no stutter, packet loss, or frame-freeze, regardless of network conditions. Zixi’s mobile, cloud-based, and on-premise solutions and services enrich user experience, create new services, and significantly reduce costs.
XOS Digital recently implemented Zixi at the core of its content-ingest, -production, and -distribution system. Using unmanaged IP networks, XOS Digital deployed Zixi to transport studio-quality game-day video to XOS Digital’s data center and editing studios for real-time processing. XOS Digital will also use Zixi to stream HD video to its content-delivery networks, affiliates, and Internet users. XOS Digital serves sports fans, coaches, and collegiate sports conferences, including the Southeastern and the Big East Conferences and NCAA football.
