Toner Cable Equipment, The ZiXi Solution
Toner one of the new distributors of ZiXi and the ZiXi solution.
Hi, this is Rob Toner from Toner Cable Equipment and I'd like to introduce to you the ZiXi Solution.
So ZiXi is a company that allows us to take live, broadcast quality video and send it out over the Internet. And by doing this, we can actually take a video source from anywhere and deliver it everywhere.
So in order to understand how the ZiXi solution works, it's really important to understand how video travels today. So in a situation where you have a camera capturing a live event, that camera captures the event, it sends the video up to a satellite, to where the studio then takes the video from the satellite, puts it into production and makes it ready for distribution. Now distribution can be accomplished through satellite, fiber optics or coaxial cable. Now the problem with this today is that it's very expensive and very time-consuming.
So in a similar scenario, where a camera is capturing a live event, the ZiXi solution works like this. The camera captures the live event, it then sends the video to a ZiXi feeder. The ZiXi Feeder then takes that video and puts it out to the public Internet. And from there, you can use a ZiXi Receiver to pull that video back from the Internet and send it to broadcasters, studios or even directly to the subscriber. And what's nice about this is that it's cost-effective, it's fast and it's high quality video.
ZiXi is able to send high quality video over the Internet while maintaining low latency and low bit rate. The reasons ZiXi is able to do this is because of package recovery software.
So here we have an example of what the video looks like with the ZiXi solution and without. So the video without you see a lot of blocking and a lot of jitter in the actual video itself. With the ZiXi it's high quality, HD video. The reason for this is that packet recovery. Without the ZiXi solution, a lot of packets are dropped along the way while transporting throughout the Internet and on the other end it has trouble putting them all together. So with the ZiXi solution it's able to recover those dropped packets and produce high quality video at the end.
So when using the ZiXi solution to send video over the Internet, you are able to take that source video from anywhere and deliver it to everywhere. It can be delivered to tablets, cell phones, mobile devices, computers and televisions in high quality.
So to see how the ZiXi solution could work with your next project, give us a call or send us an email and we'd be happy to help you.
