Zixi To Demo IP Broadcasting Solutions At IBC


USA: Zixi will present both existing and new functionalities from its ZEN Master stream orchestration and management system and core Zixi Platform at IBC2019.
Among the features on display will be: 
• Enhanced ZEN Master integration with AWS, GCP and Azure – Users can connect, monitor and manage Zixi Broadcasters on their AWS, Google Cloud and Azure instances within ZEN Master, providing streamlined operations.
• Universal origination live transcoding in 4K – From a single mezzanine source, Zixi transcodes live 4K video to adaptive bitrates and codecs and then packages them into Zixi or other industry standard formats, such as MPEG DASH, HLS, and RTMP for delivery to CDNs, digital MVPDs, IRDs, social media and more, all managed through Zixi’s ZEN Master.
• Extended content and business analytics – Zixi offers robust network, transport, content quality, and business impact analytics with alerts so any issues are immediately identified and located for rapid root cause analysis and resolution.
• Machine learning predictive analytics – Zixi employs machine learning to estimate encoded video quality (ePSNR) without analyzing the source video, providing predictive alerts protecting the quality of experience.
• Sequenced hitless failover over hybrid IP networks – The Zixi Platform applies a multiple alignment algorithm that works much like DNA sequence alignment, in order to reconstruct the original sequence of IP packets that best recreates the original stream fragments from a blend of internet, fibre, satellite, cellular, or any other IP connections for 99.999%+ reliability.
• Bonded hitless failover over hybrid IP networks – Zixi’s network bonding capability can blend internet, fibre, satellite, cellular, or any other IP connections to form a virtual bonded network that is optimised for low-latency and 99.999% broadcast-quality reliability and intelligently manages fluctuating bandwidth, packet loss and latency differences of individual connections in real-time to choose the optimal path over IP.
• Customisable reporting – ZEN Master offers customisable granular reporting, including usage reports, status summaries, and up-time and outage reporting, providing both customers and partners the key data necessary to optimise their operations.
• Automation and scheduling capabilities – Organise and schedule repetitive tasks to optimise content publishing and broadcaster operations for increased operational scale, improve staff efficiencies, and optimise spend on cloud resources.
• Visualisation such as diagraming, mapping and grids – ZEN Master’s sophisticated and customisable UI allows users to view channels, grid-based object and resource monitoring, etc. globally and at scale.
• Zixi RIST Protocol support – Zixi supports the RIST TR-06-1 and proposed TR-06-2 standards with a robust implementation that takes advantage of our long experience and proven protocol stack.
“Zixi continues to experience phenomenal customer adoption and growth worldwide,” said Gordon Brooks, Executive Chairman and CEO, Zixi. “We look forward to meeting with our existing and new customers and partners at IBC to demonstrate the new features and capabilities we have developed for them and find out what other challenges and opportunities they have as the market continues to evolve.”
Zixi will also be hosting and participating in a variety of IBC2019 events including an IBC Content Everywhere Panel Discussion on Saturday, September 14 at 4:30pm in the Content Everywhere Hub; the Google Partner Pavilion on Sunday, September 15 and Monday, September 16, from 9:30am –6:00pm at stand 14.E01; the RIST Forum Panel & Happy Hour; and Joint Partner Solutions. Gigcasters, provider of software tools and integrated solutions to execute complex live, linear and on-demand workflows, and Cerberus Tech, a global services company dedicated to IP in broadcast, will demonstrate their Zixi-integrated offerings daily on-site in the Zixi stand.
