As the leader in delivering interactive video at scale, Phenix powers innovative digital experiences that drive acquisition, engagement and retention for some of the world’s biggest brands.

Trusted with streaming video for major events like The Oscars, Cheltenham Festival and the Super Bowl, Phenix brings proven experience delivering video to millions of viewers for the world’s largest events.

An industry first, Phenix is now able to deliver real-time server-side ad insertion (SSAI) to its clients.

Product Description

Phenix’s Real-Time Video Delivery Platform has been built from the ground-up to deliver broadcast quality video to global audiences with synchronous viewing across all devices regardless of location or network conditions, and with less than ½ second of end-to-end latency.  

Phenix’s real-time video streaming technology is backed by multiple patents and leverages a packet-based approach, delivering content frame-by-frame rather than the traditional chunk-based approaches. Gone are the days of choosing between speed, scale, and quality.

In order to achieve less than 1/2 second of latency, Phenix manages the full workflow including contribution encoding, ingest, content delivery, edge transformation/transcoding, and egress to all endpoints. Enjoy the benefits of real-time video without getting sucked into the minutiae of tuning.
