Ateme and Zixi Form Partnership to Advance Internet Video Transport
Sep 18, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Ateme, a provider of video compression solutions for the broadcast industry, and Zixi announced the integration of Zixi's streaming technology into Ateme's Kyrion encoders and decoders to deliver enhanced quality of service over the "Open Internet."
According to a release, the collaboration between Ateme and Zixi provides n video transmissions over the "Open Internet", and dynamically manages the video bitrate control based upon network conditions. It is a contribution solution that combines these complex features into a single device.
The company noted that Ateme products deliver quality video compression. Ateme's Kyrion encoder/decoders are utilized by broadcasters and service providers for live transmission of video content over managed fiber and satellite networks.
Additionally, content producers are looking toward the "Open Internet," an unmanaged network, as a way to increase their reach while keeping operational costs to a minimum. The "Open Internet" has historically not been a channel for quality video transmission and is affected by unpredictable jitter and packet losses. Zixi has developed a technology to overcome these difficulties.
Through this partnership, Ateme has integrated Zixi into its high performance encoder/decoders, the Kyrion CM5000 and Kyrion DR8400, delivering an all-in-one bandwidth-intelligent solution for contribution over the "Open Internet." The integrated product line will be available in Q4 of 2013.
Dennis Albano, CEO, Zixi, said: "We are very pleased to be part of Ateme's updated family of high-performance contribution encoders. This partnership brings together two providers known for delivering the absolute highest possible video quality in their products. This integration allows content producers to use the Internet to deliver video encoded by Ateme's Kyrion products, using any profile without loss of quality and without the headaches, and cost, of fiber and satellite connections. Working together, Ateme and Zixi have proven that Internet video transport is not limited to second-tier content but can and should be used for first-class video content delivery."
Remi Beaudouin, director of product marketing, Ateme, said: "We are very excited to be able to announce this working collaboration with Zixi and the results of our partnership. We believe this joint solution will benefit many of our customers who are looking to utilize the Internet and unmanaged IP networks to transport their content without having to compromise on video quality."
Zixi enables broadcasters, streaming media companies, enterprises and video equipment manufacturers to use unmanaged IP networks to transport their content,.
