Zixi Broadcast Over IP: Transitioning from Satellite

Achieve higher uptimes with IP streaming.

The Zixi Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP) provides a higher quality, cost-effective alternative to replace or augment satellite distribution. The SDVP makes it easy for media companies to deliver broadcast over IP networks, securely, cost-effectively and at scale. As many content providers look to virtualize their infrastructure to broadcast over IP networks, they are increasingly turning to the SDVP to replace satellite delivery for all of their IP streaming needs.


Reduced Costs

For many content providers, the transition away from satellite delivery is driven by cost. Satellite and transponder time is very expensive with long-term commitments depending on where the signal is being sent. Zixi’s technology enables providers to save as much as 50% over traditional satellite delivery.

Improved Uptime

Our technology allows providers to achieve higher uptimes then satellite delivery. Clients can count on 99.999% or higher reliability when delivering video over IP networks depending upon the architecture.

Increased Visibility

Zixi’s ZEN Master control plane provides end-to-end visibility and enables media organizations to easily manage, orchestrate and monitor highly complex delivery workflows.

Future-Proof Solutions

Our agnostic technology enables organizations to future-proof their technology stack with solutions that can easily adapt to new formats, manage new delivery options and exploit new opportunities.

Customizable Technology

With support for SCTE markers and traditional features like closed captioning, Zixi enables media organizations to customize programming and ad insertion to take advantage of evolving markets and revenue opportunities.
