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), has partnered with Telstra Broadcast Services, a leading telecommunications and technology company.

Telstra and the Zixi ZEN Master control plane have aligned to provide stable, secure, and cost-effective distribution of high-quality video content over IP to Telstra’s customers and partners worldwide as part of its Telstra Global Media Network (GMN).

The Telstra Global Media Network is a purpose-built video contribution and distribution network integrating underlying media fiber networks, satellite capabilities, and partnerships connecting 2500+ OnNet endpoints including 1000+ customer endpoints and over 1500 venues and stadiums providing extensive range of networks to simplify delivery for the media, broadcast, and technology industries.

The new integrated service expands the Telstra GMN to broadcasters in locations where fiber or satellite is not available for news and entertainment broadcasters, sports leagues, and Esports organizations.

“Working with Zixi on strengthening our offering across the Telstra GMN and our partner alliance allows us to confidently deliver live video with proven resiliency and true end-to-end network diversity. We are looking forward to working with Zixi and leveraging the benefits of ZEN Master to manage, monitor and elevate the Telstra GMN services in Broadcast Operations and Master Control Rooms across the globe,” Andreas Eriksson, Head of Telstra Broadcast Services, said.

“By standardizing on Zixi, Telstra can now offer broadcast quality to any location with reliable internet connectivity in a flexible, economical and easy-to-use option. Together we enable global media companies to source and distribute 24/7 live and live linear channels and events securely and at scale,” John Wastcoat, SVP for Alliances and Marketing at Zixi, said.
