Zixi: Live UFC delivery15 September 2014
Live video specialist Zixi LLC has announced a partnership with live events producer All Mobile Video Digital Media (AMVDM), formerly AEG Live. The partnership aims to offer enhanced services for customers using Zixi to deliver live productions over IP.
Zixi and All Mobile Video have been delivering Ultimate Fighting Championship fights, with closed captioning and slate insertion added by All Mobile video to the Zixi stream from the event.
In this workflow, the content gets delivered live to All Mobile Video for processing and is delivered back to a Zixi cloud broadcaster platform, where the files are transmuxed and transcoded into different formats, protocols and bit rates for delivery to multiple end points.
Zixi says this partnership was a key piece that was missing from its delivery.
