Haivision Announces HEVC Encoding/Transcoding Solution for Today’s Real World Applications

MONTREAL, CANADA — April 1, 2014 — Today, Haivision announced its HEVC baseband encoding and HEVC / H.264 transcoding solution, Kraken HEVC, providing significantly better video quality for backhaul over constricted networks.

Built on Haivision’s Kraken transcoder platform, the new HEVC implementation is designed for government and enterprise applications such as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and video backhaul contribution. Within these environments, the challenge is to achieve the best picture quality over satellite and other constrained networks (typically in the 1 Mbps to 3 Mbps bandwidth range). Using Haivision’s implementation of HEVC, early adopters have experienced picture quality gains of up to 50 percent over H.264.

For Kraken HEVC users, the workflow involves receiving high bitrate H.264 streams or baseband inputs, converting these signals to HEVC for transport, and then reconverting the stream from HEVC to H.264 for distribution throughout their ecosystem.

“We are leading the market in HEVC and delivering optimized HEVC solutions for our clients,” said Mahmoud Al-Daccak, chief technology officer at Haivision. “Developed in collaboration with a number of government customers, we are helping them squeeze the most out of costly and constricted contribution networks for mission critical applications. While others may be driving towards 4K, our initial HEVC efforts are focused on addressing our customers’ current challenges.”

Featuring sub 0.5 seconds of latency and optimized for 720p/1080p applications, the Kraken HEVC transcoder is available on a compact 14” deep server appliance designed for power and space constrained applications such as satellite trucks. HEVC encoding and transcoding will be a software upgrade option to all installed Kraken systems. For more information on Kraken HEVC, visit: http://www.haivision.com/products/transcoders/kraken.

Haivision will demonstrate Kraken HEVC at NAB 2014 at the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel (Paramount Room, 3400 Paradise Rd) from April 7-9. For more information, visit: http://www.haivision.com/nab.

Award-winning, financial news channel Jyske Bank TV uses Haivision’s Makito X Series powered with Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) technology to achieve low cost live video contribution

MONTREAL, CANADA — March 13, 2014 — In order to drive more compelling and immediate content into their media network, Jyske Bank, one of the largest banks in Denmark, has established a 24/7 contribution feed originating at NASDAQ in New York and delivered to their production center outside of Copenhagen using low cost Internet connections. Jyske Bank uses this topical live HD content for their online TV channel, jyskebank.tv, and the content becomes an integral part of the customer experience at all their branches throughout Europe.

Jyske Bank TV covers the latest financial news and in-depth economic issues, and broadcasts live from studios at NASDAQ MarketSite in New York’s Times Square. Jyske Bank TV chose Haivision’s Makito X encoders with Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) to deliver their content over the Internet from NASDAQ to its corporate production center in Denmark for distribution.

Avoiding costly satellite networks, Jyske Bank relies on Haivision’s highly efficient, low latency H.264 Makito X encoding platform with its SRT transport layer for an end-to-end, cost effective solution for streaming quality, real-time video over the Internet at low bitrates. SRT optimizes video streaming performance across unpredictable Internet networks, recovering from packet loss, jitter, network congestion and bandwidth fluctuations that can severely affect the viewing experience.

“Jyske Bank TV is an important initiative that brings the latest financial news directly to our customers,” said Steen Mertz, director communications technology, Jyske Bank. “To make the broadcast possible, we’re using Haivision’s Makito X with its SRT technology to deliver a high quality, low latency feed over the Internet. With Haivision, we get better quality at a lower bitrate, and take advantage of low cost, everyday Internet bandwidth.”

Leveraging Haivision’s CoolSign digital signage system, Jyske Bank TV is broadcast to more than 700 screens in 120 branch locations throughout Europe.

Haivision’s Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) Tames Public Internet Connections to Allow Consistent, High Quality Video Streaming

Makito X Series of encoders and decoders now powered by SRT technology

MONTREAL, CANADA — February 19, 2014 — Haivision’s Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) technology is now available at no additional charge on all Makito X Series encoders and decoders, providing high quality, low cost video transport over the Internet.

Designed to deliver the best video quality at all times, SRT optimizes video streaming performance across unpredictable Internet networks, where packet loss, jitter and bandwidth fluctuations can severely affect the viewing experience. By combining end-to-end security, resiliency and dynamic endpoint adjustment, SRT tames common Internet streaming challenges by detecting network conditions in real time and realigning the stream to deliver the highest quality video to viewers. Now unique to the Makito X Series, the benefits of SRT technology will be applied to Haivision’s broader ecosystem of solutions.

One of the largest banks in Denmark, Jyske Bank, is using Haivision’s Makito X encoders with SRT to broadcast its financial news channel – Jyske Bank TV – to online audiences and displays in 120 branches across the country. Steen Mertz, head of communications technology at Jyske Bank commented:

“Haivision’s Makito X with SRT technology delivers a reliable, very high quality 24/7 live stream over the Internet from our news studio at NASDAQ MarketSite in New York’s Times Square to Jyske Bank’s corporate production center in Denmark. The end result is a very cost effective solution with remarkable quality at low bitrates.”

Using Haivision’s SRT, customers can gain significant operational flexibility and cost savings by eliminating the need to rely on satellite or dedicated network infrastructure. With SRT, organizations can now:

  • Stream events from any venue regardless of unreliable Internet connections
  • Monitor remote facility feeds without dedicated network provisioning, avoiding long lead times and costly annual contracts
  • Increase content programming while eliminating the need for satellite links that include high hourly charges
  • Introduce live video to digital signage networks without investing in additional infrastructure costs

“Makito X with SRT delivers the cleanest HD video over the dirtiest networks,” said Peter Maag, chief marketing officer at Haivision. “We debuted SRT at IBC 2013 where it allowed us to continuously stream from a hotel to the show floor over highly congested networks without special network accommodations. Now, we’re harnessing SRT within our Makito X Series to help customers successfully stream video in any Internet environment.”
