Haivision’s Zixi Ready(TM) Makito Encoders Dramatically Reduce HD Video Transmission Costs

The World’s Most Popular H.264 Low Latency Encoder Now Supports Zixi Quality HD Video Transport Services Over the Public Internet

MONTREAL and CHICAGO — April 5, 2011 — Haivision, the leading provider of the most advanced video networking, digital signage, and IP video distribution solutions, today announced that it has collaborated with Zixi, LLC, to incorporate Zixi technology directly within low-latency Makito(TM) encoder and decoder HD H.264 appliances. Zixi enables broadcast-quality HD video transport over low-cost public Internet connections. Haivision’s Makito is an ultra-compact, low-power, easy-to-set-up and deploy appliance that can now be ordered with Zixi ready(TM) capabilities.

“Zixi presents a very compelling solution for our media, house of worship, and enterprise clients,” said Peter Maag, Haivision’s executive vice president. “We collaborated with Zixi to support the Zixi technology directly within our Makito encoders after continual market success together. We have over 15 mutual client installations within the broadcast and church segments that benefit from this combined solution daily. Dramatically reducing monthly costs associated with HD content transmission opens our markets to a much broader audience.”

The Makito/Zixi solution is ideal for electronic news gathering (ENG) where remote live sites do not have access to custom network or satellite services and lead times for breaking news stories are short. The solution is also ideal for connecting facilities over low-cost and readily available Internet connections, saving thousands of dollars every month compared with managed-performance network services.

Zixi overcomes IP transport challenges specific to video through advanced multimedia time synchronization and error recovery technology that accommodates the sometimes severe packet loss and end-to-end latency issues associated with the public Internet. Zixi also provides Internet services to distribute up to full HDTV (1080p/60fps) video to multiple destinations simultaneously, including Zixi ready Makito decoders and popular players with the Zixi Client(TM) software.

Zixi ready Makito and Barracuda encoders and Makito decoders are now available from Haivision. To enable video delivery and management with Zixi technology, customers can obtain licenses and services directly from Zixi, LLC.
