Mediaproxy Adds Zixi And SRT Capability To LogServer
Users of the low latency video streaming protocols can now use LogServer for compliance monitoring and analysis.
Mediaproxy has upgraded its flagship logging and monitoring system to work with both the Zixi and SRT formats. This allows LogServer to be used by OTT service operators running low latency streams, an important feature for more efficient, fully interactive viewer experiences.
Zixi is a software-defined live streaming platform designed to produce a broadcast-quality service over any IP network, protocol, cloud provider or edge device, with the added benefit of low latency. The company's Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP) is aimed at operators looking to launch digital OTT networks or migrate their workflows to the cloud. It can also be used in planning for satellite contract expiration, entering new markets, signing up new MPVDs (Multichannel Video Programming Distributors), providing new distribution paths to reach new audiences, expanding brand content and offering localized and mass customization.
SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) is an open-source video transport protocol based on UDP (User Datagram Protocol) technology. It is able to deliver high-quality, secure, low-latency video over the public internet by optimizing streaming performance across unpredictable networks using secure streams and easy firewall traversal. In this way SRT can account for packet loss, jitter and fluctuating bandwidth, while at the same time maintaining video integrity and quality.
"Being able to support two of the most prominent streaming platform protocols is an important advance for LogServer," comments Mediaproxy chief technology officer John O’Halloran. "Low latency streaming is becoming more important for live internet sources. Having native support for both Zixi and SRT protocols in LogServers will allow customers to take advantage of our advanced toolsets for compliance, monitoring and analysis. We are also very pleased to now be a member of the SRT Alliance and hope we can make a contribution to the good work that has already been done in the development of low latency, open-source video transport systems."
