Haivision IBC 2013 Preview
New Haivision Solutions at IBC
Haivision delivers solutions for streaming, recording, managing, and distributing secure IP video and interactive media within the enterprise, education, medical/healthcare, and federal/military markets. Making its IBC 2013 debut is the Haivision Video Cloud, a complete online video management platform that simplifies live and on-demand content publishing workflows. Haivision will also showcase the Calypso network video recorder and the latest version of the Viper all-in-one appliance, designed for on-premise and cloud performance recording and streaming solutions. Along with demonstrations of its next generation Makito X2 H.264 encoder, Haivision will showcase its latest technology solutions focused on video transport and advanced Internet encoding.
Simplify the Complexity of Managing and Publishing Video in the Cloud – Haivision Video Cloud
The Haivision Video Cloud is an integrated end-to-end online video management platform that enables live encoding of events, cloud transcoding, automated video content management and publishing across CDNs to any connected device. As companies increase their adoption of video for corporate communications, training, marketing and live events, the delivery and management of video content has increased in complexity with distribution to different mobile devices, platforms and video formats. The Haivision Video Cloud gives companies a much easier way to get their video in the cloud, with everything they need in a straightforward, hassle-free package.
View, Record and Share Live Video Content to Support Situational Education and Mission-Critical Decision Making – Haivision’s Calypso
Calypso, Haivision’s new multi-source network video recorder, makes it possible to view, record and share live video content to empower mission-critical decision making, collaboration and assessment. Suited for simulation, skills assessment and training applications, Calypso enables users to quickly turn live activities and events into media assets by capturing and sharing live and on-demand content in real-time.
All-in-One Capture, Stream, Record, and VOD Appliance – Viper Sets the Performance Benchmark for Dual-Channel Recording and Streaming Devices
Ideal for corporate presentations, classrooms, and medical procedures, the Viper is a compact, completely integrated platform for capturing, streaming, reviewing, distributing and publishing rich, multi-stream high definition content. The Viper is available either as a standalone appliance or as a companion contribution appliance for the Furnace™ IP video distribution system. The Viper combines the power of dual-channel, real-time HD H.264 encoding, performance recording, a streaming server, a multi-stream player manager, and a video-on-demand server in a single appliance with simple touch operation.
Media Contribution and Extreme Encoding – Makito X2 Now Available
The Makito X2 is Haivision’s next generation, dual channel, low-latency HD-SDI H.264 encoder and the first Haivision product to incorporate the Makito X Series technology. It delivers higher quality video to meet HD streaming challenges at a significantly reduced bitrate.
Address tomorrow’s IP video challenges – HEVC Encoding, MPEG-DASH and Hybrid Encoding Technology from Haivision’s HaiGear Labs
At IBC 2013, Haivision will preview advanced technology initiatives as part of its HaiGear Labs demonstrations. These new technology advancements address the latest video compression and delivery standards, introducing a progressive application of hardware and software optimization. Haivision will demonstrate:
- End-to-end live streaming of HEVC, including both software-based encoding and decoding implementations of the next generation HEVC (high-efficiency video coding) H.265 codec. The bandwidth efficiency associated with the adoption of HEVC promises to greatly expand delivery of high-quality, high-resolution video over bandwidth-constrained networks.
- MPEG-DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) in an end-to-end live streaming environment, simplifying and converging an HTTP segmented format for the delivery of IP video to help drive down costs and enable better content to be offered to IP video audiences.
- Hybrid Encoding technology, a blended approach to CPU and GPU utilization for the encoding or transcoding processes. The benefit of Hybrid Encoding is that a single software-based platform can get combined density gains of GPU acceleration while maintaining the quality gains of pure software on CPU. Haivision’s initial approach is to take advantage of the latest Intel™ CPU technology, which incorporates GPUs directly as cores within the chip.
