Zixi partners with Google Cloud
Zixi has partnered with Google Cloud to allow companies in the media, telecommunications and entertainment to deliver end-to-end broadcast quality live video solutions over IP using Google Cloud.
In this collaboration, Zixi SDVP has been integrated with Google Cloud, leveraging its unique infrastructure and platform capabilities and extensive Zixi APIs. Users can now deploy Zixi Broadcasters using Zixi Zen Master and have access to comprehensive telemetry data on the network, transport, intra-cloud delivery and associated edge devices in the end-to-end workflow.
The Zen Master control panel enables users to manage large-scale configurations to orchestrate, analyse, monitor, alert and report on live video streams and devices across the Zixi Enabled Network of customers, integrated devices and platforms and service providers standardised on Zixi. The Zixi SDVP has also been natively integrated with Google Compute Engine storage to effectively facilitate contribution and distribution to content and broadcast partners.
“Google Cloud’s integration with Zixi’s reliable and secure broadcast-quality video transport and real-time network traffic and video monitoring allows users to focus on content, not transport infrastructures,” said Eunice Park, vice president global sales & revenue, Zixi. “This alliance with Google Cloud is another milestone in our mission to enable broadcasters the ability to develop new and creative services as the industry continues to evolve.”
Zixi on Google Cloud will give broadcasters and content providers the ability to securely and reliably distribute video content at sub-second, ultra-low latency with the strongest security, resiliency and scale. Zixi’s protocols and applications for real-time delivery enable high visual quality and user experience, while ensuring that latency is maintained and synchronised across devices, network locations and conditions so that content providers can deliver video in real-time to the end user with confidence.
Kip Schauer, global head of media and entertainment partnerships, at Google, added: “Thanks to partners like Zixi, we are seeing a tremendous shift in behaviour in the media, telecommunications and entertainment market. Broadcasters and content producers are now able to acquire and distribute live video signals utilising Google Cloud via any IP network and Zixi’s software which supports over 17 protocols. We look forward to our continued work together to support customers in the industry.”
