Marshall Electronics has added Zixi’s Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP) into its lineup of IP cameras.
The company’s cameras feature PTZ and zoom capability with extended zoom ranges of 20x and 30x optical range, resolutions up to 3840x2160p60, and HEVC video encoding while simultaneously supporting output to 12GSDI and up to three concurrent Zixi feeds over IP.
All standard IP camera versions can be loaded with the Zixi-enabled firmware allowing existing Marshall operators to easily add Zixi support to their cameras, unlocking premium connectivity support and direct integration with the full suite of capabilities in the SDVP, said the two companies.
Supported IP camera models include CV355-30X, CV420-30X, CV620, CV730, and the top-level CV730-BHN/WHN platforms.
Operations teams can flexibly deploy Zixi Broadcasters, which can ingest the Marshall Camera Zixi feed and provide real-time content quality analysis, live impairment detection, and low latency processing including live transcoding and protocol conversion.
Zixi also enhances reliable transmission with support for bonded delivery over diverse networks such as 5G, LTE, and unmanaged internet and hitless failover that reconstructs a single coherent transport stream from multiple time-aligned sources.
“Zixi is the leader for IP video delivery in the broadcast community and is requested by some of the industry’s largest integrators,” said Tod Musgrave, senior director cameras, Marshall Electronics. “With Zixi integrated, Marshall Cameras now have access to the leading performance, efficiency, security and reliability that the SDVP enables.”
