Zixi has announced its adoption by GINX Esports TV, enabling secure broadcast-quality delivery over IP for its live coverage.
Citing Zixi’s security, reliability, cost and ease of use, GINX selected the video-over-IP company to link its two international feeds.
GINX Esports TV head of technical operations Sebastian Gomez said: “As a linear channel, distribution is a key ingredient. Without getting to the head ends of pay-TV platforms our business model wouldn’t work. Our distribution used to be managed externally and done via satellite, but moving to Zixi has allowed us to have a very cost-effective distribution system that can be managed in-house – it has given us independence and control of all our feeds.
“Our uptime increased since we started using Zixi. If we have maintenance issues on one of our playouts, coverage is unaffected because all our distribution end points get the streams from both locations simultaneously. The platform also gives us information on what’s wrong, which helps with troubleshooting.”
