Haivision to showcase Internet streaming and IP video offerings
Haivision will demonstrate the company’s full range of Internet streaming and enterprise IP video distribution solutions, which aim at unleashing the power of live streaming. Making their debut at IBC2012 are the KulaByte 4.0 live H.264 encoder/transcoder for Linux, the Furnace 7.0 IP video distribution system with InStream Mobile, and Viper 1.1, a compact integrated appliance for capturing, streaming, and distributing high-definition content.
Also at IBC2012, Haivision will announce its support of MPEG-DASH, today’s new standard for adaptive streaming over HTTP. In addition, thanks to new partnerships in the transmission of live global sporting events, Haivision has secured its place as the leader in IP video delivery to online audiences worldwide.
“Haivision helps deliver more video to more people through complete end-to-end video solutions,” said Peter Maag, chief marketing officer, Haivision. “Our latest developments empower organization with unparalleled high quality and high performance media experiences for mobile platforms both within the enterprise and broadcast across the Internet through a focus on all critical elements from encoding, to transport, through cloud transcoding, to advanced player technology.”
KulaByte 4.0, Haivision’s live, software-based, Internet encoder/transcoder for adaptive bit rate (ABR) streaming, is now on Linux, bringing a 30% performance improvement, a new user interface, and a 40% cost reduction when deployed in cloud-computing environments such as Amazon’s EC2. KulaByte 4.0 uniquely matches HD quality with transport technologies designed to maximize streams delivered to the Internet. These technologies include constant bit rate (CBR), Dynamic Stream Shaping (DSS), and Micro-Chunking, assuring optimal and dynamic usage of available uplink bandwidth.
In the field, Viper KB enables portable high quality source encoding, providing the power of KulaByte encoding within a compact appliance with touch panel operation.
Haivision’s global streaming platform, HyperStream, automates the power of KulaByte cloud transcoding and CDN connectivity for content providers so that they can simply deliver media to global audiences.
At IBC 2012, Haivision will announce its support for the MPEG-DASH standard, the industry’s consolidated approach to adaptive bit rate streaming with HTTP. Haivision will support DASH across its product line, starting with the KulaByte encoder/transcoder.
Haivision will also showcase its Enterprise IP Video Solutions, including InStream Mobile, a very low latency video player for mobile devices. The player extends Haivision’s Furnace IP video system to deliver live, high-performance video to Apple devices within the enterprise setting. Haivision’s InStream Mobile app will be available from the Apple iTunes App Store in August 2012.
Often used in conjunction with the Furnace system, Makito, the popular H.264 1080p60 encoder appliance with a 55 millisecond performance and AES encryption, now receives Internet streaming capability with RTMP support. This important upgrade is available to all installed Makitos at no charge.
Torpedo, Haivision’s DVB to IP gateway for delivering digital broadcasts directly to IP networks without re-encoding now features direct, free-of-charge integration with the Amino set-top box. Haivision’s Torpedo/Amino integration is the lowest-cost integrated IPTV solution on the market.
For those charged with advanced lecture capture, rich media streaming, and medical procedure review applications, Viper 1.1 provides a dual HD channel recording and streaming. 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 the assets to a central video-on-demand system. The Viper MAX, a stand-alone appliance, has also been enhanced, combining the power of Haivision’s H.264 encoding technology with the integrated Furnace operating environment.
All IBC2012 attendees and the press are invited to attend this panel session composed of industry-leading technology providers, including iStreamPlanet and Haivision, who partnered to develop the “Go-Live Package,” a live turnkey streaming solution designed to deliver 12 live streams from the 2012 London Olympics to mobile devices and computers. On Saturday, Sept. 8 from 16:00 – 18:30, IBC@Sports will present Live Streaming of the 2012 Olympic Games to Connected Devices: Enabling Olympic Rights Holder Broadcasters to Expand their Digital Footprint . Attendees are invited to learn more about how these technology providers partnered with Interxion, Europe’s largest data center provider as well as regional Olympic Rights Holder Broadcasters (RHB) to expand their digital footprint with live streaming of the Olympics, cost effectively and securely, to deliver the Games to specific regions while optimizing for a seamless device playback experience.
