Zixi Showcase

Zixi Broadcaster v17

Zixi and AWS
with ZEN Master

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. Partner and Cloud playout specialist coralbay.tv will exhibit its Zixi integration into the next generation playout software coralPlay, that provides an automation control interface as well as a video pipeline, delivering video and audio in a variety of output formats.  As well as delivering primary video, coralPlay provides secondary functions such as graphics and subtitling.

Zixi will be featuring ultra-low latency, dramatic throughput, compute and efficiency improvements that realize extraordinary cost reduction. As part of the exhibition, Zixi will be exhibiting new and existing capabilities of the SDVP, including the scale and efficiency of Zixi Broadcaster v17 with improved processing capacity:

Scale and Efficiency of Zixi Broadcaster v17:

  • Improved processing capacity requiring 60% less compute leading to cost reduction
  • Up to 3x savings in egress cost for the same stream on other platforms 
  • Support deployments on ARM based instances with significant savings on compute costs and reduced carbon footprint
  • Dramatically improved resource utilization and updated architecture yield up to 200% throughput increase to 1Gbps per core
  • 50%-75% reduction in operating cost over traditional workflows
  • ML Driven encoder rate control ensuring superior QoS and QoE 
  • Enhances traffic shaping, removal and replacement of broken frames with prior good frames

Zixi’s broad partnership with AWS will be on display including integration of the SDVP in 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 and CDI flows and Elemental Link devices and is available in the AWS Marketplace for both public and private offer contracts.
