Haivision Products at Streaming Media West 2011:
At Streaming Media West 2011, Haivision will display its newly acquired KulaByte 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. 100% software-based, the KulaByte encoder provides the most efficient use of uplink bandwidth due to extremely high quality-to-bitrate performance and tight bitrate 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 week after week.

HyperStream Live Cloud Transcoding
Haivision will also show off the new HyperStream transcoding solution at Streaming Media West 2011. HyperStream 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.
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 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 user datagram protocol (UDP) network sources. The Makito provides H.264 encoding at up to 1080p60 with the lowest available end-to-end latencies.
