HaiVision Launches PIRANHA Combining Audio and Video With Metadata for Low Latency H.264 Encoding Application

MONTREAL — Nov. 6, 2008 — HaiVision Systems Inc., the world’s leading vendor of high performance H.264 HD and SD video codecs, today announced the availability of the new PIRANHA encoding platform. The PIRANHA, based on HaiVision’s low-latency H.264 encoding engine, combines time-based metadata with compressed video and audio into industry-standard MPEG transport streams. The PIRANHA is targeted at applications specifically within military markets where auxiliary data is directly associated with the video stream, such as mobile surveillance platforms. Because such data can change over time (e.g., position information), the data is merged in real time with the compressed video information for transport to remote storage, processing, or display devices.

“With mission-critical network video applications, milliseconds matter,” states Peter Maag, HaiVision vice president. “We deliver the fastest H.264 compression because of our extensive experience in network video communications. With the important development of data handling and the associated release of the PIRANHA, we have opened the application of our technology to a broad spectrum of government video projects.”

The PIRANHA, available today with full frame-rate standard definition encoding, obtains the serial data information from within the closed caption area of the video stream (line 21) or from a serial port on the encoder system. The PIRANHA encodes the data and video within the compressed IP stream in under 200 milliseconds, compared to other products that take many seconds to encode H.264 video. HaiVision’s H.264 is fully compatible with set-top boxes, Adobe® Flash®, QuickTime® streaming servers, and soft players. The PIRANHA is a compact 1U rack-mounted appliance.
