DoE E-Rates HaiVision Products

HaiVision Network Video announced that the company's video networking solutions have been listed as E-Rate products by the U.S. Department of Education. With this designation and the help of federal funding, HaiVision solutions are now more easily accessible to eligible educational institutions.

HaiVision Network Video announced that the company's video networking solutions have been listed as E-Rate products by the U.S. Department of Education. With this designation and the help of federal funding, HaiVision solutions are now more easily accessible to eligible educational institutions seeking to deploy the company's networking technologies to bring live video and video-on-demand into the classroom.

Qualified institutions can receive up to 90 percent off E-Rate product costs funded by the government program. This means many of HaiVision's Gold resellers can offer customers aid in configuring systems and writing funding requests. HaiVision products are listed under SPIN 143032804 and classified under the Video Furnace name. HaiVision merged with Video Furnace earlier this year.

"The E-Rate listing is exciting for HaiVision because it enables us to put video networking technology and tools into the hands of schools, faculty members, and students that might not otherwise be able to afford them," said Mirko Wicha, president and CEO of HaiVision Network Video, in a statement. "As libraries and educational institutions look at best approaches to adopt leading technology within restricted budgets, they now have the opportunity to take advantage of our solutions at a fraction of the actual cost."

HaiVision's E-Rated products include the Video Furnace System 5 (VFS5) video distribution systems and the Makito and Barracuda video encoding equipment. The products allow educators to push live TV content to classrooms and every student's desktop, to build subject-specific content libraries, and to offer video-on-demand to their students and faculty members. School IT departments can also benefit from InStream, HaiVision's desktop player, which requires no desktop preparation and works immediately across all platforms, the company says.

The E-Rate program was created in 1997 to ensure that schools and libraries have affordable access to advanced telecommunications services. Under the program, eligible institutions can receive discounts of up to 90 percent off telecommunications services, Internet access, and internal connections, subject to a $2.25 billion annual cap.
