New! Viper MAX -- Stand-Alone Stream, Record, VoD With InStream(TM)
At IBC2011, Haivision will launch its latest generation of H.264 technology, the Viper MAX. Viper MAX combines the power of Haivision's acclaimed H.264 encoding with an integrated Furnace(TM) operating environment. Through a simple, user-friendly touch screen, operators can set up a multi-channel session, initiate simultaneous streaming and recording, and automatically make content available for on-demand viewing. The Viper captures full-resolution, full-frame-rate, dual-channel content synchronously, assuring contextual review. During a session, remote viewers can watch multistream HD content live simply by clicking a Web link and launching Haivision's patented browser-independent InStream(TM) player. InStream doesn't require installation, works equally across all platforms, and provides 100 percent secure video distribution. After recording an event, users can make the multi-stream asset available for direct on-demand viewing. When combined with the Viper's Conditional Access module, the operator can securely publish assets either within the Viper portal or as a simple Web link emailed to specific people or groups, or automatically transfer the files to any network location.
Viper -- Fuel the Furnace(TM) With Distributed Recording and Publishing
Haivision will also display its new Viper -- a compact, integrated appliance for capturing, streaming, reviewing, distributing, and publishing multistream content. The Viper can also effectively off-load the recording from a facility's Furnace(TM) IP video system. For clients that have large IP video recording requirements, establishing large central recording systems and assuring the ability to record any endpoint at any time may be impractical due to server or network capacity. Recording at the edge and publishing to a central video-on-demand system eliminates such dependencies. Combining Viper endpoints with a central Furnace IP video system is the ideal solution for large medical, educational, and enterprise media systems, giving the flexibility to stream or record rich media events anywhere, anytime. The Viper can be managed simply by the operator, initiating streaming channels and publishing recording data, or can be centrally managed through the Furnace's administrative interfaces. Vipers that are attached to central Furnace systems that include the Furnace Conditional Access module benefit from system-wide security of all live and on-demand video assets.

Furnace(TM) 6.0 Including MultiStream(TM) Recording and Advanced Publishing
This important sixth revision of the acclaimed Furnace(TM) IP video system brings forward advanced recording and publishing features to enable clients to capture and distribute synchronized multistream video content. The VF Recorder module is enhanced to support recording and review of up to four simultaneous video streams associated with a combined video asset. During the recording, HotMarks(TM) (real-time metadata) can be applied to all streams either through the user interface or as triggered by third-party control systems. HotMarks enable viewers to search for and jump to specific tagged events quickly. The VF Publisher module is introduced to establish automated ingest and publishing of content. After a record process, users can instantly assign content to specific groups, make the content available within the Web portal, email links to specific users or groups, or deposit the content into third-party systems for further editing.
The Makito(TM) offers the most efficient and affordable distribution, capture, and rebroadcast of HD video. The Makito represents the first and only full-featured high-performance compact encoder to combine the efficiencies of H.264 video compression and the image quality of full HD video within a very small form factor at a competitive price point.
Recently upgraded to revision 1.5, the Makito now supports constant bit rate (CBR) encoding to assure transport and system-wide compatibilities and, optionally, real-time metadata capabilities. The metadata option allows users to incorporate KLV metadata into the compressed video stream with the data obtained from the serial port, from auxiliary data fields within the digital video stream, or from UDP network sources. The Makito provides H.264 encoding at up to 1080p60 with the lowest available end-to-end latencies.
Also at IBC will be the Makito Air(TM), a ruggedized version engineered for airborne video and ideal for military, security, and law enforcement applications. Features include added real-time metadata (KLV and CoT) support, operation with MIL-STD connectors, and compliance with stringent DO-160 specifications.
