    Zixi, a provider for enabling dependable, live broadcast-quality video over any-IP, and award winning architect of the Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP), today announced that TAG Video Systems, the world leader in software based IP Multiviewing and Monitoring, has integrated Zixi to allow customers to aggregate all sources into one visual mosaic monitoring platform. The Zixi protocol and video solutions stack, including Zixi Feeders, Receivers and Broadcasters, are now supported internally in the TAG MCM-9000 eliminating the need for outboard processing or servers as previously required.

    The MCM-9000 provides a complete monitoring solution for all the transmission layers starting from the TS packet header all the way down to the encoded video content and quality. It creates a visual mosaic from the monitored streams with rich data overlay, supplying the NOC operator with a strong tool for error detection and alerting. The   created mosaic is an HD or UHD video stream, encoded and transmitted enabling remote monitoring, mobile device access and a very flexible installation topology. The MCM-9000 monitors complete ETR-101-290 compliance with a rich variety of properties including video freeze, black video, audio silence, audio levels, color space, resolution change, service bitrate and PMT structure. TAG now supports Zixi on both input and output transport streams. Input stream support allows Zixi feeds to be received, monitored and displayed directly by the TAG system, and output stream support allows TAG mosaic outputs to also include Zixi processing when feeding operator displays that are distant from the TAG system. Existing MCM-9000 systems can be upgraded to support Zixi.

    With the industry leading Zixi protocol, the SDVP is the only solution that can provide five and six nines availability utilizing patented sequenced hitless and bonded hitless failover over mixed IP networks such as internet, fiber, satellite and cellular. The powerful ZEN Master control plane enables users to manage large-scale configurations and orchestrate, analyze, monitor, alert and report on live video streams and devices across the Zixi Enabled Network of customers, integrated devices and platforms and service providers standardized on Zixi. With this powerful integration into TAG’s MCM-9000, NOC operators can now quickly gain workflow flexibility and agility, monitoring all broadcaster formats, from uncompressed to highly compressed HLS. Mosaic display outputs can now be protected with Zixi, maintaining image and sound integrity and fidelity even in work from home situations. Operators can now be confident that any impairments they see in the mosaic images are present in the monitored signals.
    “With Zixi’s excellent reputation for delivering live, broadcast-quality video our customers have been insisting that we integrate the SDVP,” said xxx, yyy, . “The MCM-9000 and Zixi joint offering allows customers to cost-effectively leverage two best in class solutions while reducing their hardware footprint.”
