WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Zixi, the industry leader for enabling dependable, live broadcast-quality video over any-IP, and award winning architect of the Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP), today announced an integration and partnership with iOiO, a SaaS platform that accelerates live streaming, video encoding, and channel playout in the AWS Cloud.
iOiO provides automated solutions for creating end-to-end video workflows by utilizing the power of AWS Media Services, serverless architecture, and cloud scalability. With over 12 years of experience in video, iOiO delivers an intuitive user interface and powerful API for service integrators. iOiO's live streaming, channel playout, and VOD encoding workflows meet modern OTT and broadcaster needs, providing scale and reducing CAPEX and OPEX with no added overhead for engineering or learning.
By combining iOiO Live Workflows with the SDVP, users can easily feed Zixi transport streams into the cloud for encoding and OTT distribution to multiple platforms and partners. iOiO users can easily enable Zixi for error-free video transport over any IP network, with minimal changes to existing workflows. Using ZEN Master and iOiO Live Automation, customers can leverage the benefits of a cloud-based control plane without the necessity of hardware infrastructure or a large operations team. This integration automatically creates an AWS delivery Endpoint, which is configured on the iOiO platform to transcode, insert ads, and deliver the OTT stream to the customer's CDN.
