Video contribution AVIWEST used NAB to intro a specially designed backpack that enhances the functionalities of the company’s DMNG PRO video uplink system.

Zixi, supplied in the UK by Cerberus Satellite Services, works by providing a quality of service (QOS) layer on top of the Internet or other unmanaged IP networks. The combined offering could save on satellite bandwidth or leased lines. Fraser Jardine, the commercial director at Suitcase TV, said: “When delivering high quality video over IP, broadcasters are often faced with such problems as latency, jitter, and packet loss. We are doing all we can to address these issues and, as the leading light in this fi eld, Zixi is the obvious choice to help us make our solutions the best they can possibly be.” Zixi’s video-specifi c transport layer is said to guarantee delivery of video over any distance between two endpoints regardless of latency requirements, as long as it has suffi cient bandwidth. Zixi “intelligently” orders packets of date to achieve smooth, sequential delivery.
