The special edition of the program was created this year in the absence of a physical spring NAB Show, with entries judged on their written nominations. The Best of Show Awards honor and promote outstanding new, recently introduced and pending products and services.
The Zixi Software-Defined Video Platform was recognized for being the only comprehensive platform to enable dependable, live broadcast-quality video over any IP network, any protocol, any cloud and any edge device, making it easy and economical to source, manage and distribute live events and 24/7 live linear channels securely and at scale. Especially relevant in today’s current climate dominated by remote work, Zixi’s Software-Defined Video Platform enables media and entertainment companies to migrate their workflow control points from on-premise infrastructures with local operational and engineering resources to remotely managed workflows that leverage existing infrastructures and extend those capabilities to the Cloud (public and private) while allowing the agility, flexibility, scale and security with the Quality of Service that professional broadcast requires. By using all the elements of Zixi’s Software-Defined Video Platform, remote users can maintain business continuity and securely orchestrate, manage and monitor broadcast quality, low latency live video workflows from anywhere in the world.
“Our thanks to the many companies that participated in this year’s program under such unusual circumstances,” said Paul McLane, managing director of content in Future’s B2B media technology group. “It’s clear from the nominations and the outstanding winners that despite the current health crisis, technology innovation remains strong in our industry.”
Future’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. Winners receive an award for display and will be featured in TV Technology, the industry source for equipment buyers in the broadcast, cable, production, corporate and new media markets.
Zixi’s Software-Defined Video Platform will be featured in the Best of Show Awards Program Guide, to be distributed in digital edition form to more than 95,000 readers of Radio World, TV Technology, Digital Video, Video Edge, Government Video, Pro Sound News, Sound & Video Contractor, Broadcasting & Cable, Next TV and TVB Europe in coming weeks.
