Today AWS Elemental MediaConnect added support for Zixi pull. With this feature, you can now use MediaConnect to send video to devices on-premises that are behind corporate firewalls or in network address translation (NAT) environments. With the addition to existing Zixi push support, Zixi pull allows MediaConnect to support a broader range of off-the-shelf integrated receiver/decoders (IRDs).

AWS Elemental MediaConnect is a reliable, secure, and flexible transport service for live video that enables broadcasters and content owners to build live video workflows and securely share live content with partners and customers. MediaConnect helps customers who run 24x7 TV channels or broadcast live events transport their high-value video streams into, through, and out of the AWS Cloud in a fraction of the time and cost of satellite or fiber services. MediaConnect can function as a standalone service or within a larger video workflow that includes other AWS Media Services.
