Waltham, MA (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
Using the Zixi platform and technology, Livestream dramatically streamlines and simplifies the first mile ingest from the live event venue into the destination’s CDN. By centralizing the ingest point of presence (POP ) using the Zixi platform, Livestream removed the complexity of launching thousands of live events while maintaining pristine video quality.
Livestream has incorporated Zixi software to ensure the highest quality delivery of live ingest streams into the Livestream service. This functionality has been rolled out to Livestream clients for live sporting events and will soon be available to all Livestream users. In addition, Livestream added a Zixi output option to Livestream Studio™, enabling event producers to produce and deliver live events to any location in the world. Livestream Studio offers a full array of tools for viewing multiple camera angles, adding transitions, mixing audio, adding graphics, inserting ads, downstream keys, and more and is available with integrated hardware or as a software-only solution.
“We are proud to be a trusted technology partner for Livestream,” noted Zixi CEO Dennis Albano. “Livestream is known for delivering tools that enable content producers to deliver professional live events. By incorporating Zixi software, Livestream will be able to ensure the highest quality video connections between event origination sites and Livestream’s data centers,” Dennis added.
"Adding support for Zixi in our product suite just makes sense,” added Max Haot, Livestream CEO and Co-founder. “Zixi is becoming the preferred method for delivering the highest quality video connections regardless of distance or errors on the network. This agreement allows us to leverage Zixi’s technology for the benefit of our entire user base and enhances the Livestream Studio offering as well. We look forward to extending the use of other unique Zixi capabilities to distribute low latency and high quality video to end users."
Zixi and Livestream will both be showing the combined offering at NAB 2014 happening in Las Vegas starting April 7th. You can find the Zixi in the South Upper Hall at booth SU11905. You can find the Livestream booth in the South Lower hall SL3305.
