“Governmental institutions are quickly realizing the benefits of online video delivery. As a result, agencies are adopting advanced Internet streaming technologies to deliver content to a multitude of devices easily and reliably,” said Andy Vaughan, vice president of federal sales for Haivision. “At GV Expo 2011, we’re looking forward to showcasing Haivision’s award-winning video networking, digital signage, and IP video distribution solutions.”
Haivision delivers advanced technology for streaming, recording, managing, and distributing secure IP video and interactive media within the enterprise, education, medical/healthcare, and federal/military markets. Haivision is a private company based in Montreal and Chicago, with technical excellence centers in Beaverton, Ore., Austin, Texas, and Hamburg, Germany.

Haivision Products on Display at GV Expo 2011:
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 full HD video quality in a very small form factor — all at a very competitive price point.
Recently upgraded to revision 1.5, the Makito now supports constant bit rate (CBR) encoding to assure transport and systemwide 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 user datagram protocol (UDP) network sources. The Makito provides H.264 encoding at up to 1080p60 with the lowest available end-to-end latencies.

Furnace(TM) 6.0 Including MultiStream(TM) Recording and Advanced Publishing
This important sixth revision of the highly acclaimed Furnace(TM) IP video system brings forward advanced recording and publishing features to enable clients to capture and distribute synchronized multistream video content. The VF Recorder module is enhanced to support recording and review of up to four simultaneous video streams associated with a combined video asset. During the recording, HotMarks(TM) (real-time metadata) can be applied to all streams either through the user interface or as triggered by third-party control systems. HotMarks enables viewers to search for and jump to specific tagged events quickly. The VF Publisher module establishes 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.

At GV Expo 2011, Haivision will display its newly acquired KulaByte(TM) software encoder. The KulaByte encoder allows users to deliver live content to multiple sites easily and reliably, with best-in-class adaptive player technology that enables dynamic, real-time updates for dependable online video delivery to desktop or mobile devices. Completely software-based, the KulaByte encoder provides the most efficient use of uplink bandwidth due to extremely high quality-to-bit rate performance and tight bit rate control. 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 user interface and operation, anyone from trained employees to volunteer teams can reliably deliver the desired results time after time.

HyperStream(TM) Live Cloud Transcoding
Haivision will also show off the HyperStream(TM) transcoding solution, which 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.
Haivision’s CoolSign(TM) digital signage solution boasts all the features and functions required to meet any signage need, from smaller installations to sophisticated multiscreen landmark displays to large-scale global networks. Launched in 1998, CoolSign has a long legacy of innovation, pioneering many aspects of digital signage technology including n-tier architecture, native multicasting support, real-time connectivity, full-edge device monitoring and control, flexible media scheduling, closed data architecture, bandwidth usage controls, and many others. Secure, scalable, reliable, and efficient, CoolSign serves the demands of myriad retail, government, financial services, corporate, and pure-play digital out-of-home advertising (DOOH) networks around the globe.
