Haivision Launches the Viper MultiStream™ IP Video Streamer/Recorder
At the 2011 InfoComm Show, Haivision will launch its fifth generation H.264 technology, the Viper — a compact, integrated appliance for capturing, streaming, reviewing, distributing, and publishing multistream content. The Viper can be used as a stand-alone device, to bring powerful recording, streaming, and VoD capabilities directly from event centers by capturing and distributing multiple HD video sources or HD video and computer display sources simultaneously. The Viper supports record/review/publish and live streaming applications. The Viper’s touch screen provides a simple user interface programmed to serve a user’s particular media publishing needs. The Viper can also be integrated as a remote contributor to Haivision’s Furnace IP video system, enabling a distributed recording architecture without relying on central network video recording capacity to accommodate every user.
Haivision Demonstrates Furnace™ 6.0 Including MultiStream™ Recording and Advanced Publishing
This important sixth revision of the acclaimed Furnace™ IP video system brings forward advanced recording and publishing features to enable clients to capture and distribute synchronized multi-stream video content. The VF Recorder module is enhanced to support recording and review of up to four simultaneous video streams associated within a combined video asset. During the recording, real-time metadata can be applied (HotMarks™) 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.
Haivision Products at the 2011 InfoComm Show
Makito™ Family of HD H.264 Encoders and Decoders
The Makito™ 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 InfoComm will be the Makito Air™, 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.
