Zixi now integrates into Harmonic’s cloud based VOS 360 solution
Zixi has announced the integration of its solution into Harmonic’s cloud based VOS®360 Live Streaming Platform, the company’s offering for delivering and monetizing live streaming services.
Harmonic enables media companies and service providers to deliver “ultra-high-quality” video streaming and broadcast services to consumers globally. To secure the content in transit throughout its delivery chain, the VOS®360 cloud infrastructure features the integrated Zixi SDVP that can receive live video from Harmonic CloudLink, 3rd party devices and software with embedded Zixi, as well as from customers with deployed Zixi Broadcasters. With this joint solution, end-to-end workflows can be created at all stages of the media processing and delivery chain.
According to the press release, the Zixi protocol has the “lowest latency in the industry” with reliable sub-second worldwide delivery fully supported by the Zixi SDVP. The Zixi protocol uses a combination of “advanced technologies”, network bonding, congestion avoidance and hitless failover to create a coherent stream out of multiple stream fragments using a “DNA sequence alignment algorithm”, ensuring that latency is maintained and synchronized across devices, network locations, and conditions.
“Our partnership with Zixi allows us to further enhance our innovative streaming solutions that address the challenges our mutual customers are facing,” said Shahar Bar, Senior Vice President, Video Products and Corporate Development, at Harmonic. “We are very pleased to further expand our mutual offerings to the market with the highest level of availability and reliability.”
“Zixi and Harmonic share the same mission to deliver ultra-high-quality, flexible video experiences,” commented John Wastcoat, SVP Alliances and Marketing, Zixi. “Together we are able to provide these exciting, business critical solutions to customers throughout the world.” Harmonic and Zixi will present and demonstrate the integrated offering on Wednesday, July 22nd at 11 AM EST/4 PM UK.
