Zixi Partner Program

Collaboration for Integrated Solutions

Partnering with Zixi for live and live linear contribution or distribution enables technology solution providers to offer customers reliable and secure video streaming solutions at scale around the world.

The Zixi Technology Partner Program helps partners accelerate the development of interoperable products and simplify the integration within increasingly complex customer environments. By integrating with Zixi, partners can boost sales opportunities, broaden their product portfolios and reduce integration risks by not putting the exclusive burden of selection, testing and deployment on the customer.

Become Part of the Zixi Partner Program

Unprecedented Interoperability Across 400+ Partners and OEMs

Partner Benefits

Zixi will provide full development support and access to its developer resources, as well as previews of new technologies and roadmap updates. A partnership with Zixi offers increased exposure for your brand through worldwide marketing collaboration via PR, case studies, solution briefs and joint events. Partners will also be provided with the opportunity to present their solutions to Zixi audiences to raise awareness and generate referral sales.

Customer Benefits

Your customers will not only benefit from the next-generation transfer technology that Zixi provides, but they will be able to deploy solutions that have been jointly developed and tested, and demonstrate proven reliability, scalability and security. An open and extensible architecture will easily accommodate new functionality. Joint references serve to reassure the customers and reduce the risk.

ZEN Master Certified

Receive Additional Promotion as a ZEN Master Certified Partner

With Zixi’s ZEN Master control plane, content providers can manage, configure, and monitor large-scale deployments of the Zixi Enabled Network, Zixi platform devices and appliances. Because of its simplicity and ease of use, customers are demanding that the Zixi platform-compatible equipment that they deploy also integrate with ZEN Master to provide a real-time view of the health of the entire system. By creating an integrated solution with Zixi, Partners can help their customers deliver the best possible experience by adding ZEN Master capabilities to their offerings and be promoted as a ZEN Master Certified technology partner.

Zixi SDVP® Features that can be Integrated in Partner Devices





Customers will use a password to protect a stream when distributing to multiple endpoints.

Password protection enhances security and protects content from being copied.

AES Encryption                  

Optional feature to encrypt and output stream with an AES encryption key. Zixi can handle keys up to 256k. Please test the limits of the hardware capabilities of the device.

AES Encryption further protects content from being used by unauthorized parties.


Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) is a communications protocol that provides security for datagram-based applications by allowing them to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery. The DTLS protocol is based on the stream-oriented Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol and is intended to provide similar security guarantees.

Like in websites using TLS, DTLS provides authentication of the content server and prevents man-in-the-middle attacks.

Hitless Failover

Zixi’s hitless failover feature is based on the SMPTE 2022-7 standard, which specifies “seamless” or hitless failover between binary-identical streams with synchronized RTP headers. Zixi then applies a proprietary sequencing algorithm to identify missing parts and fill-in missing packets.

Seamlessly switches from one stream to another in the event of failover and significantly adds to the redundancy and robustness of content delivery.

Auto retries on encoder or decoder

In the event of temporary downtime, the encoder can keep retrying to re-establish a handshake when the target host or stream becomes available.

Adds to robustness and resiliency of the stream in harsh network situations and promotes quick recovery.

NIC Selection

Some devices will have a separate NIC for management and others will have multiple NICs for redundancy. The integration should have the ability to select NICs from list of NIC cards online.

Flexible NIC selection promotes scalability.


In the event a customer has multiple ISP networks and will rely on a more costly network for backup, Zixi is capable of automatically switching to alternate paths when the primary goes offline.

Significantly enhances redundancy and high availability.


Network bonding is a process of combing or joining two or more network interfaces together into a single interface. Network bonding offers performance improvements and redundancy by increasing the network throughput and bandwidth.

Increased throughput promotes higher resolution and better quality of content.

Encoder Back-Pressure

Encoder Feedback mechanism for seamlessly adjusting bit rate on a Zixi integrated Encoder.

Adjusting bit rate automatically provides for a much better viewer experience.

Advanced Settings FEC

If the network has limited bandwidth, the customer may want to limit the amount of FEC that Zixi can apply. Additional FEC will increase the bandwidth used to send streams.

Gives the user the ability to fine tune delivery to specific conditions.


Ability to configure logging to different log levels.

Flexible logging supports better troubleshooting.
