Haivision To Demo New Encoding Platform at CCW
At CCW 2012, Haivision will have the first public showing of its new encoding platform. The platform delivers new levels of industry-leading density and quality to the market by combining unmatched HD encoding at bitrates below 2 Mbps. Haivision will also be highlighting its new portfolio of InStream player technologies, bringing the highest performance HD streaming to mobile devices, set-top boxes, and traditional computer platforms.
“At CCW Haivision is presenting revolutionary technologies for HD video delivery for the first time,” said Peter Maag, chief marketing officer, Haivision. “We will be demonstrating groundbreaking encoding and player technology designed to enable the enterprise and broadcaster alike to deploy video workflows that increase efficiency within the firewall and across the Internet.”
The low-latency HD media player for iOS and Android mobile devices is now available as a free application in the Apple App Store and soon from the Google Play Store. InStream Mobile is a highly advanced and easy-to-use player for HD video delivery in applications that require the lowest end-to-end delay from source to viewer.
The popular H.264 1080p60 performance encoder with an incredible 55 milliseconds of encoding latency and AES encryption, often used in conjunction with the Furnace end-to-end IP video system, now features higher density and higher quality.
The Viper dual HD channel recording and streaming appliance is ideal for advanced lecture capture, rich media streaming, and medical procedure review applications. With the new release, Haivision is introducing the Viper VF, a companion to the Furnace system tailored to installations where several rooms require the ability to record independently before publishing assets to a central video-on-demand system. The Viper MAX, a standalone appliance, has also been enhanced by combining the power of Haivision’s acclaimed H.264 encoding technology with the integrated Furnace operating environment.
Haivision’s software-based Internet encoder/transcoder for adaptive bitrate streaming is now available on Linux — bringing a 30-percent performance improvement, a new user interface, and cost reductions when deployed in cloud computing environments such as Amazon’s EC2. KulaByte 4.0 uniquely matches exceptional HD quality with transport technologies designed to maximize streams delivered to the Internet. These technologies include constant bitrate and Dynamic Stream Shaping, assuring optimal and dynamic usage of available uplink bandwidth.
Haivision’s Internet media services simplify and automate the power of KulaByte cloud transcoding and CDN connectivity so that content providers can easily deliver media to global audiences with a simplified process that moves workflows to the cloud.
