Thought Leadership

Over the course of the show we had over 20 interviews with journalists from across the world who are covering the Zixi Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP®), Zixi deployments with customers such as FOX and Estrella Media, partners such as AWS, MediaKind and Google and our view on the industry in general. 

The company led several thought leadership events, with SVP BD and Marketing John Wastcoat kicking off the Devoncroft Summit as title sponsor displaying a surprising knowledge of the history of opera. CEO Gordon Brooks headlined the “The Technology Supplier C-Suite: Strategies for an Evolving Market” panel along with Zixi Enabled Network partners Google Cloud and Amagi, along with other industry leaders where they discussed trends in broadcast, IP and cloud deployments and the state of investment in media companies.

Best Practices in Live IP Video Delivery

Brooks also moderated a panel in the prestigious IBC Showcase Theatre with industry experts Dave Travis, Group Director of Content, Broadcast & Platforms at Sky and Ralf Jacob, EVP Broadcast Operations & Global Engineering at TelevisaUnivision. The group discussed best practices in live IP video delivery and the use of the Cloud, and how major global media organizations are achieving the lowest TCO with deployments that are not only the most cost-effective solutions available, but also drastically improving sustainability. Sustainability initiatives are important to the media and entertainment industry, but especially effective when made to be financially attractive to adopt. The panelists offered their views on how these modern workflows are accelerating new content acquisition, new business models and opportunities to generate revenue.


Zixi innovation was also widely acknowledged with several awards from Media and Entertainment industry organizations:

The SDVP was recognized for Best of Show by TV Tech, for innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the M&E industry. 

TVB Europe awarded the SDVP for its contributions to 5G live video delivery on the basis of diverse and comprehensive product features are, ease of use and integration with other products, value for money within the market and lastly how innovative and unique it is within the market.

Besides being short-listed for the CSI Awards “Best Monitoring or Network Management Solution” for the  Zixi Intelligent Data Platform (IDP) and “Best Network Delivery Technology” for the SDVP, Zixi did win “Best 5G or Mobile Video Technology or Service” for 5G innovation and excellence in the cable, satellite, broadcast, IPTV, telco, broadband/OTT video, mobile TV and associated sectors.
