Ultra-Low Latency Streaming Media Servers

Ultra-Low Latency

Red5’s Zixi video streaming solution sends real-time live video anywhere across the world from a Zixi feeder including Zixi Broadcaster, Zixi enabled encoders, and Zixi Zen Master to viewers in near-instant, sub-250 milliseconds of round trip latency.

Automatic Scaling

Our cross-cloud-based autoscaling solution automatically scales your media servers up and down in real time to deliver Zixi protocol to real-time viewers using multiple streaming protocols.

Quality Streams

Industry-first WebRTC Adaptive Bitrate streaming (ABR) adjusts to network conditions and NACK resends critical dropped packets from the media server for consistent, high quality audio and video content even in the most difficult conditions, enhancing the ability of the Zixi Protocol to withstand packet loss across the internet or other networks that can be congested.

Zixi Zen Master

Send video to and from Zixi Zen Master using the Zixi Protocol allowing you to view multiple streams at once in multi-view formats for monitoring purposes.

Secure Streaming

Create fully end-to-end encrypted live video with the Zixi protocol and WebRTC distribution.
