Haivision Announces the General Availability of Makito X2 – the Highest Density H.264 HD Encoding Appliance

Haivision’s Makito X2 delivers extreme quality to reduce bandwidth needs by as much as 50 percent and provides the highest HD encoding density available for live streaming

MONTREAL and CHICAGO — March 21, 2013 — Haivision today announced the general availability of Makito™ X2, the company’s next generation, dual channel, low-latency HD-SDI H.264 encoder. The Makito X2 is the first Haivision product to incorporate the company’s Makito X Series technology, delivering higher quality video to meet HD streaming challenges at a significantly reduced bitrate. The Makito X2 also achieves the highest 1080p60 H.264 encoding density supporting up to 12 sources in a single rack unit chassis.

The Makito X2 carries forward the extreme performance of the original Makito with 55 millisecond encoding latency. Tailored for the most demanding enterprise, medical, and military applications, the Makito X2 also supports multi-bitrate (MBR) streaming and can output 4 different stream bitrate profiles per source (from 32 kbps to 25 Mbps) over MPEG transport stream or RTMP. Other advanced and mature features, many inherited from the Makito, include downscaling, de-interlacing, deblocking, forward error correction, encryption, closed captioning, and key length value (KLV) metadata for full motion video (FMV) applications.

“In order to address today’s video workflows within the enterprise and across the Internet, system designers look for bandwidth efficiency,” said Mirko Wicha, president, and CEO of Haivision. “Not only does the Makito X2 yield the same quality at half the bandwidth, it couples this with remarkable density, performance, and features so our clients can address mission critical applications.”

Haivision’s low latency encoder is ideal for virtually any streaming challenge, including video backhaul, interactive applications, HIPAA compliant streaming in healthcare, delivering critical video feeds to financial traders and general purpose campus IPTV. The Makito X2 can also support enterprise head-end projects such as delivering HD channels throughout a facility over secure, encrypted multicast video using Haivision’s Furnace to centrally manage set top boxes and performance multiview players for broadcast monitoring. Supporting multi-bitrate streaming and a variety of stream encapsulations, the Makito X2 delivers high quality video to decision makers, collaborators, and casual users regardless of location, network, or device.

Haivision will demonstrate the Makito X2 at the NAB Show in Las Vegas on April 8-11 at booth SL6605.
