"Streaming Media Europe 2011 is the ideal venue for us to officially launch Haivision's new Internet Media division to the European audience," said Mirko Wicha, president and CEO of Haivision Network Video. "By offering the industry's most advanced encoding, transcoding, cloud computing, and workflow solutions, Haivision is now enabling end-to-end rich media solutions that deliver the highest-quality live and on-demand HD media experience regardless of network or platform."
Haivision Products at Streaming Media Europe 2011:
New! KulaByte Encoder
At Streaming Media Europe 2011, Haivision will display its newly acquired KulaByte software encoder. The KulaByte encoder allows users to deliver the easiest, most reliable connected solutions for multisite needs. Web-based delivery combined with the best-in-class adaptive player technology allows for dynamic, real-time updates to deliver reliable video to a desktop or mobile device. KulaByte allows users to leverage connectivity to multisite locations to distribute HD video in difficult network environments, such as the Internet, with a guarantee of consistent high-quality video at low bit rates. This solution provides the added ability to control the receiving stream from any location with a cloud-based DVR solution, making it easier than ever to sort through the live stream and find the desired destination to play back on command directly from the player. With its simple interfacing tools, the ease of use is undeniable. Anyone from trained employees to volunteer teams can reliably deliver the desired results week after week.
HyperStream Live Cloud Transcoding
Haivision will also show off the new HyperStream at Streaming Media Europe 2011. HyperStream is capable of transforming live video source streams into all of the many formats and data rates required to distribute live video via the Internet. HyperStream delivers live transcoded source video streams to every screen regardless of device, player, screen size, or bandwidth.
HyperStream allows event producers to rethink their traditional approach to live webcasting. With audiences increasingly consuming media on many different types of devices and networks, HyperStream provides high-quality, reliable, consistent output streams to the full range of playback devices, even when streaming from challenging low-bandwidth environments. Preparing the multiple renditions needed for all of these devices and bit rates previously required additional investment in on-site encoding hardware, bandwidth, and infrastructure. HyperStream eliminates this wasteful per-event overspending and complexity, in favor of a flexible, comprehensive cloud-based live streaming platform.
The Makito(TM) encoder 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 Streaming Media Europe 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.
