Data correction by ZiXi
Best encoding even on bad lines
miniCASTER® and nanoCASTER® now stream better even on poor internet connections. If you are an experienced live producer, you know it very well: Packet loss on the first mile gives you headaches in a row. Without data correction, producers of live streamings have to accept bad audio and video quality even on high bandwith upstream connections. But your pain is now over. From November 2012 on, every miniCASTER® and nanoCASTER® will be shipped with the data correction technology from ZiXi. ZiXi`s patented protocol prevents network congestion on the first mile, which results in poor video quality and latency. One of the many elements of the ZiXi protocol is video-aware ZiXi-FEC (Forward Error Correction). This feature is especially important for delay-sensitive applications, such as field reporting, and sports, when there is a dialog between the reported in the field and the studio. The pocket-sized live H.264 encoders will be shipped with a 90-day ZiXi license free of charge, which can be extended for a small fee per month.
