Fresh on the heels of winning TVBEurope’s “Best of Show” and CSI Magazine’s “Best Network Delivery Technology” awards at IBC 2019, Zixi, the industry leader for enabling dependable, live broadcast-quality video over IP networks, will continue to demonstrate its leadership in IP transport solutions by participating in Sports Video Group’s TranSPORT event and NAB Show New York during the week of October 14th.
At Sports Video Group’s annual TranSPORT conference on Tuesday, October 15th, Zixi’s VP of Business Development, Eric Bolten, will be featured on a panel from 3:25 – 4 PM.
