Haivision releases new version of InStream Mobile
Supporting end-to-end latency of less than 500 milliseconds for 1080p60 video when coupled with Haivision’s Makito X HD H.264 encoder, InStream Mobile is suitable for the most demanding enterprise applications that require live collaboration, support mission critical decisions, or rely on an in-context viewing experience. In contrast, typical mobile streaming solutions are subject to a 10 to 60 second delay.
Based on industry standards, supporting both Transport Stream multicast and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), InStream Mobile gives users access to local performance streams as well as those available on the Internet. Local multicast transport streams do not need to be transcoded, resized, or converted to HLS, allowing InStream Mobile to be instantly deployed within current enterprise workflows. InStream Mobile also supports a central channel guide file so the channel list for all users can quickly be established and changed, further easing deployment and media control.
“Haivision is focused on end-to-end performance. We made InStream Mobile freely available to the market so that power users and integrators could exercise their IP video systems towards the toughest media challenges,” said Peter Maag, CMO of Haivision. “Paired with the Makito X encoder, mobile users can enjoy the lowest latency and highest quality video with an uninterrupted viewing experience.”
Additional InStream Mobile features include: forward error correction (with Makito); TalkBack (with Makito); HLS and TS stream support; central channel guide; fast channel changes; multitrack audio; and stream statistics.
InStream Mobile for iOS devices is available free of charge in the Apple iTunes stores globally and in Haivision’s Download Center for Android devices.
