Streaming Media Readers Select Haivision’s KulaByte(TM) as Most Popular Software-Based Internet Encoder Through Streaming Media Reader’s Choice Awards

Powerful Streaming Solution for Dynamic Flash and Adaptive HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) Takes Top Prize in Encoding Software Category

MONTREAL and CHICAGO — Nov. 15, 2011 — Haivision Network Video today announced that its KulaByte(TM) live Internet encoder has been chosen by the readers of Streaming Media Magazine as a Streaming Media Reader’s Choice Award winner. KulaByte received top honors in the Encoding Software (Over $1,000) category.

Haivision’s KulaByte is a professional-quality, software-based encoder for fueling Dynamic Flash and Adaptive HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) Internet media. KulaByte is renowned for the quality of the compressed video streams it produces and its efficiency in using contribution networks.

“KulaByte simply offers the best quality video encoding for the Internet,” said Philipp Angele, owner of Berlin-based Camcast, a full-service production company specializing in live Internet streaming solutions and video production. “We have been using KulaByte for many years, now staging more than 100 events annually supported by a fleet of six KulaByte encoding systems. The encoders can be tuned perfectly for both Flash and HLS.”

Camcast’s streaming experience spans many client applications, from extreme sports to global brand companies. The company deploys KulaByte encoders for events in the field and also hosts a number of systems in its Berlin teleport for satellite-based contribution.

In addition to ensuring encoding quality, KulaByte leads the competition in rate control, which enables users to maximize their use of Internet connections. The latest release of KulaByte also incorporates Automatic Bandwidth Correction(TM). The KulaByte encoder detects congestion on the outbound network connections and automatically adjusts the stream bit rates to accommodate bandwidth constriction and to take advantage of increased bandwidth availability.

“The finalists in the 2011 Streaming Media Readers’ Choice Awards are a real who’s who of the online media industry, both in terms of established players and up-and-comers,” said Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, editor of Streaming Media magazine. “What’s most significant about these awards is that they’re the only ones voted on by the people who actually use these technologies and services every day. This year, we had 269 nominees in our 20 categories, and more than 6,000 people cast their votes.”

“Feedback from our user community is critical in helping us develop and improve our products, and the users and industry experts who read Streaming Media represent our core customers,” said Peter Forman, vice president, business development, Haivision Internet Media Division. “With this honor, these readers have recognized KulaByte’s tremendous value in helping them to reach and retain online audiences with higher video quality and lower bandwidth consumption.”

The Streaming Media Reader’s Choice Award winners were announced at Streaming Media West on Nov. 9, and they will be featured in the December/January issue of Streaming Media magazine.
