A graph of the performance of the Zixi transport protocol measured against others.
Zixi, which develops a protocol for live streaming over the public internet, has announced support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elemental MediaLive and MediaConnect.
The integration with the latest release of AWS Elemental Live allows customers to take advantage of Zixi’s methods of optimizing IP-networks for video and to configure outputs intended to deliver live video content in real-time over unmanaged networks – according to Zixi.
Zixi says its customers also have the option to configure their outputs from AWS Elemental MediaLive to be sent to AWS Elemental MediaConnect, an IP-based transport service for live video.
“The Zixi Platform delivers a mezzanine quality broadcast solution for streaming video which provides an alternative to traditional satellite and fiber technology, giving content creators and distributors real choice in efficient, dependable solutions,” said Gordon Brooks, Executive Chairman. “We’re excited to enhance our ability through leveraging the power of AWS Elemental to enable global media businesses to easily create opportunities where content creators can leverage any IP network around the world to deliver media catering to audiences that want dependable, flexible, access to content with pristine quality.”
