USA: Zixi, the industry leader in enabling cost-efficient and highly scalable live broadcast-quality video over any IP network or protocol and provider of the award-winning Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP) has announced the exhibition of next-generation live streaming features and functionality at NAB 2023 (booth 3301) in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center beginning Sunday, April 16th through Wednesday, April 19th.
Zixi will be demonstrating a broad range of exciting new product updates and unparalleled live video delivery performance running over the Zixi Enabled Network, the industry’s largest ecosystem, at this year’s conference. The Zixi Enabled Network consists of over 1000 media companies and 400 technology partners globally exchanging live video, creating powerful acceleration of new content acquisition, business models, and opportunities to reduce cost and generate revenue.
In addition to individually scheduled private meetings, the Zixi team will also be presenting opportunities for participants 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.
Zixi will feature ultra-low latency, dramatic throughput, compute and efficiency improvements that realize extraordinary cost reduction. 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 deployments on ARM-based instances with significant savings on compute costs, reduced carbon footprint, and dramatically improved resource utilization 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 utilizing 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.
