NEW at ISE 2011! Haivision Torpedo™
The Torpedo™ family of DVB-to-IP gateways enables today's digital broadcasts to be delivered over IP video networks without the need to re-encode the content. The Torpedo takes a digital RF DVB signal from a satellite or terrestrial antenna, extracts and filters the MPEG-2 transport stream packets, and retransmits them to multiple multicast or unicast UDP targets via an Ethernet interface. Using a single Torpedo, enterprises can deliver a number of digital satellite TV and radio services to viewers over standard IP video networks. Haivision's Torpedo supports both SD and HD satellite (DVB-S and DVB-S2) and terrestrial (DVB-T) signals. The Torpedo will also support DVB-T2, an emerging standard for terrestrial HD, early next year. The new gateway may be used as a stand-alone system or be integrated as part of the Haivision Furnace™ end-to-end IP video system.
At ISE 2011, Haivision will highlight its Furnace™ 5.6, a complete solution for end-to-end HD H.264 video-over-IP distribution that provides a complete infrastructure for delivering secure video to any desktop and display within an organization. With the Furnace users can record any source, apply metadata, and deliver live or recorded video, or video on demand (VoD). The Furnace allows administrators granular control over the media within a facility, and a harmonized experience for all users.
• The Furnace includes a unique patented player technology called InStream™, which works across all platforms and requires no installation or client system upgrades.
• The Furnace requires minimal IT support.
• Combined with the Haivision Makito™ HD H.264 encoder, the Furnace provides encrypted video from the source to any player and display. The Furnace is also a powerful integrated solution that supports the Makito to manage and distribute live video to computers and set-top boxes, to create scheduled playback channels for enterprise TV and signage, and to record content and deliver VoD in a secure, easy-to-use system.
The Furnace Portal Server controls the direct and secure distribution of SD and HD H.264 video to both the "zero-footprint" InStream player and the Stingray™ set-top box. The Furnace Playback Manager supports scheduled channels for IP video broadcast and signage, and the Furnace Media Server leverages the efficiencies of H.264 to enable HD VoD.
Makito™ HD H.264 Encoder With Component Analog and DVI Inputs
At ISE 2011, Haivision will demonstrate the Makito™ HD H.264 video encoder, which supports both component analog and DVI inputs. 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.
• The unique encoding system delivers extremely low latency under 70 milliseconds, full-frame-rate H.264 encoding of HD video, and computer graphics resolutions up to 1920x1080 60Hz and 1280x1024 75Hz (SXGA) or 1080p60 video resolution.
• The Makito incorporates HiLo-Streaming™, the ability to encode once and emit both high- and low-bandwidth streams simultaneously, and Multi-Streaming™, the ability to send streams with different IP encapsulation to different destinations.
• When integrated with the Furnace™ IP video system, the Makito also distributes 100 percent secure and robust video.
The Makito offers the most efficient and affordable distribution, capture, and rebroadcast of HD video.
Also from Haivision at ISE 2011 will be the latest addition to the company's Makito™ family, an H.264 decoder that offers the most extreme low-latency decoding available with less than 70 milliseconds of latency at video resolutions of up to 1080p60. When paired with the popular Makito HD H.264 encoder, this system provides efficient delivery of HD video via HD-SDI or HDMI output. Sharing the space-saving, miniblade form factor and low power requirements of the Makito encoder, this new product is an optimal solution for military applications seeking a professional-grade, low-latency, high-performance video decoding solution.
