Zixi, the industry leader of live broadcast-quality video delivery over public and private IP networks to any device, anywhere, at any time, and The CrossFit Games, an annual competition with multiple rounds to find the “Fittest On Earth” announce that CrossFit Inc. is using Zixi for live contribution from CrossFit events happening at multiple sites around the globe feeding back to the studio.
"Producing the CrossFit Games, a competition with multiple rounds, taking place live from venues around the world, presents some logistical challenges that impact quality and cost,” stated Kyle Moschetto, CrossFit IT Manager “We are sending live feeds from Australia, Korea , Latin America, Europe, and Canada back to California and we needed a reliable, low cost, and secure contribution solution from these sites that delivers the highest video quality. With Zixi, we delivered our feeds using standard internet connections, and saw a significant improvement in the video quality and reliability of our end product.”
“The CrossFit Games is a great competition and an ideal fit for leveraging Zixi’s network aware transport protocol for contribution from any distance at high quality,” added Ray Thompson, Vice President Product Marketing at Zixi. "Working with CrossFit’s IT staff, Zixi technicians architected an occasional-use live content contribution solution from multiple events located across the globe using standard internet connections, to be sent via a Zixi Video Cloud, back to the CrossFit studio. This helped The CrossFit Games achieve their quality and economic goals.”
The CrossFit Games are using multiple Zixi Feeders running on rugged PCs to provide reliable contribution from their live events happening from multiple locations around the world, contributing to a cloud Zixi Broadcaster which then sends Zixi protected streams to CrossFit’s studio for clipping of highlights which are then sent to the CrossFit YouTube channel.
