Evrideo, whose cloud-based broadcast platform enables any content owner to manage linear TV channels and distribute them over IP, is leveraging Zixi SDVP to offer an integrated solution that enables rapid distribution and syndication of channels to cable operators as well as to DTH, IPTV and OTT platforms.
Using Evrideo and Zixi technologies, customers can shift from hardware-based to software-defined solutions to quickly gain workflow flexibility and agility when it comes to enabling new revenue sources and cost-effective content exchange.
The Evrideo platform is designed to create and deliver linear channels and live events for TV and digital broadcasts. Evrideo’s cloud-based master control room (MCR) and playout solution uses Zixi throughout the entire delivery path under a pay-as-you-go model. Evrideo users can also set up a connection or transport using Zixi in a matter of minutes, with minimal staff, compared to the hours and extensive teams needed to supervise more traditional infrastructure such as fibre or satellite.
Evrideo relies on key elements of the Zixi Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP) to transport broadcast-quality live video over any IP network — leveraging on the Zixi protocol and the video solutions stack.
The Zixi protocol is a resilient congestion and network-aware protocol that adjusts to varying network conditions and employs patented, dynamic Forward Error Correction techniques for error-free video transport over IP with 99.9999% uptime at minimal latency.
“The Zixi integration gives our customers IP video delivery with ultra-low latency and best-in-class security,” said Avi Zenou, CEO, Evrideo.
“The whole new level of agility and speed that our customers win when delivering feeds with the SDVP over cost-effective public IP enables our customers to benefit from both worlds — squeeze and cut down dramatically their unit economics while insisting on the highest level of feed reliability and accuracy … and that’s what we call a game changer!”
John Wastcoat, SVP Alliances and Marketing, Zixi, said: “This integration allows broadcasters and content owners to focus on developing innovative business models rather than worrying about operations and technology. And the partnership with Evrideo further expands the depth and breadth of the Zixi Enabled Network for worldwide connectivity.”
