Live video-over-IP company Zixi has partnered with video software company Synamedia on IP distribution for mass deployment.
Synamedia has integrated Zixi into its D9800 Network Transport Receiver. Synamedia has also integrated the Virtual Digital Content Manager (DCM) platform into Zixi to offer virtualised and software-based video processing.
The D9800, traditionally used for satellite distribution in combination with Synamedia’s PowerVu Network Center (PNC), employs an all-in-one interface that allows traditional content providers the tools to transition to the next generation of distribution solutions, all while providing the same or better distribution, control, and reliability of satellite. The Virtual DCM encoding and multiplexing platform is a key component for video processing in both content and service provider headends.
“As the industry transitions to cloud video delivery over IP, our combined solution allows content providers to better position themselves for both emerging and established global markets”, said Julien Signes, SVP and general manager of Video Processing, Synamedia. “The Zixi integration enables our customers to quickly and smoothly transition their businesses with little disruption to existing workflows.”
