Bloomberg has chosen Zixi to provide 4K live transcode processing and delivery for its new Bloomberg TV Plus service.
The channel is available in 4K UHD on Samsung 4K TVs pre-installed with Samsung TV Plus.
It is leveraging Zixi’s 300 millisecond transcoding process in order to produce high quality, ultra-low latency adaptive streams from studio camera to consumer.
According to Zixi, its advanced WebTVV implementation holds and controls metadata throughout the entire broadcast workflow, facilitating the legal mandate to include closed captioning along with the precise placement of the time code and frame rate for unique and individualised monetisation.
“Zixi’s Bloomberg TV Plus deployment, and resulting UHD live stream on Samsung TV Plus, are the result of the cutting-edge engineering that we are known for” said Gordon Brooks, CEO and executive chairman, Zixi. “We are excited to combine these advanced technologies for a truly advanced viewer experience for millions around the world.”
