FAZZT FEC®

KenCast’s patented Fazzt Forward Error Correction (Fazzt FEC®) technology is a proprietary error correction procedure provided at the core of every Fazzt Digital Delivery System. It is the most efficient and economical way of assuring that receiving sites get each file in perfect condition the first time.

KenCast’s unique Fazzt FEC algorithms assure the highest level of broadcast reliability, in sunny or rainy weather, and even where no return links are available. Via satellite or terrestrial networks, Fazzt reliability is available end-to-end, network to network, from capture by content provider right through to the end-user, even to the mobile user equipped with a handheld device. Fazzt FEC offers the administrator many options for selecting the type of error correction most effective for the particular network and broadcast conditions.

Our Fazzt FEC can be applied at the channel level, allowing protection to extend across multiple transmissions. This is particularly advantageous for applications transmitting large numbers of medium files. KenCast takes pride in its content delivery technology, providing:

  • High reliability
  • Efficiency
  • Security
