Our VP of professional services and solutions and resident Zixi genius, Emeka Okoli, just sent me a document I would like to share with you.
Packed into a short three pages, Emeka explains how Zixi can be used to acquire content for news, sports, live events and more using the unmanaged Internet for transport. Zixi ensures that what comes out of the back of your encoder (in Emeka’s example, a Makito) arrives at your decoder with exactly the same quality it entered the network with. Think of what this means: you can use the Internet to stream studio-quality video no matter what the distance is between your locations. It also means you can save time and money by not rolling trucks or having to prep a site (everyone has Internet access these days). Another reason I wanted to share this document is that Emeka has enumerated the protocols that Zixi supports — as you can see, whatever your production workflow is, Zixi can transport it. The overview also helps new Zixi users understand how where Zixi fits in the transmission path.
