Live Video Transcoding

GPU Accelerated Low Latency Live Transcoding for OTT Streaming and Broadcast Distribution.

Delivering high-demand live events to any device anywhere in the world is hard. The Zixi Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP) makes it easier with integrated low latency live transcoding, taking in mezzanine live video streams and transcoding to broadcast quality H.265/HEVC and H.264/AVC. For OTT streaming video platforms and Social Media/eSports Zixi Live Transcode supports packaging to HLS, DASH, and RTMP.  In addition, format and standards conversion are automated with live backhaul via Zixi protocol, RIST, RTP, SRT and UDP for reintegration into broadcast systems.

The SDVP can conduct video transcoding at the source (or via satellite, fiber or any IP network) and deliver any required protocol over a public or private IP network. Our live transcoding software keeps our OTT service providers up to speed with the demands of content customization, new advertising opportunities and the need for flexible scaling.

Live Transcoding Capabilities

Leveraging the power of NVIDIA GPUs, the Zixi Transcoder provides high-density SD to UHD transcoding with multiple stream renditions for adaptive delivery. Whether deployed on PCIe boards for bare-metal installations or on leading cloud providers such as AWS, GCP, Azure, and OCI, the Zixi Transcoder delivers optimal performance.

Flexible deployment options include support for CPU-only software transcoding for less demanding applications, available on both X86_64 and ARM64 platforms.
