International House of Prayer Builds Powerful Internet Streaming Ministry With Haivision’s KulaByte H.264 Encoders

Ministry Connects Locations, Delivers Broadcast Feeds, and Fuels Internet Media Portals Using Multiple Haivision Technologies

MONTREAL and CHICAGO — Nov. 8, 2011 — Haivision today announced that the International House of Prayer (IHOP) is expanding its sophisticated 24/7 Web streaming ministry with Haivision’s KulaByte live Internet video encoders. The new systems complement the established Haivision video encoding technology (including hai1000 and Makito(TM) products) by providing direct to Internet high-definition (HD) streaming capability. Based in Kansas City, Mo., IHOP relies on Haivision encoding of HD video using the H.264 compression standard for live Internet streaming of its prayer room services, as well as for high-quality video feeds between IHOP University (IHOPU), numerous other live ministry event locations, and broadcast centers.

As a central component of IHOP’s global ministry, the prayer room in Kansas City operates around the clock with 12 two-hour prayer meetings conducted every day. In order to stream the prayer meetings live to the IHOP website with HD video quality, IHOP recently upgraded its obsolete legacy encoding platform to Haivision’s KulaByte H.264 encoders. The KulaByte encoders provide ultra-efficient compression of HD video to H.264 combined with exacting bandwidth control to maximize video quality over fixed bandwidth connections for video delivery to both Flash(R) and HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) based websites.

IHOP has also installed other Haivision video encoding technology to support its diverse operational footprint. IHOP provides a direct, high-quality live stream of the prayer room to GOD TV, an international Christian television network that broadcasts the prayer room at various times during the day, in addition to live streaming on its own website. IHOP is currently supplying the stream via point-to-point satellite links between Kansas City, Washington, D.C., and the GOD TV broadcast facility in Jerusalem. To reduce related transmission costs, IHOP has installed the Mako(TM) hai1000 encoder systems that allow the ministry to transition the GOD TV connections to much lower cost public Internet connections.

“Our online services are an essential part of our ministry, and we are all 100 percent committed to making sure that our live Web stream never goes down. That’s why it’s essential that we choose encoding equipment with absolute, bullet-proof reliability,” said Ari Burt, head of online video for IHOP. “The Haivision H.264 encoding solutions provide this reliability as well as top-notch quality for Internet streaming of HD content, and we have been very impressed not only with the responsiveness of the Haivision customer service team but also the superior Web interface.”

In addition to Internet streaming and global distribution of the prayer room feeds, IHOP relies on Haivision solutions to backhaul live event coverage from its conference center and various locations throughout the IHOPU campus to the master control center. IHOP deploys Haivision’s high performance Makito H.264 HD encoders at event sources, decodes the signals in the master control, routes the signals through production, and then sends the HD video on to the KulaByte encoders for streaming to the IHOP website. One such recent event, a youth conference called One Thing, brought 130,000 unique visitors to the IHOP website. In another example, IHOP used the point-to-point system to stream live coverage of Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s recent “The Response” prayer event, pushing more than 20 gigs per second over the ministry’s Akamai content delivery network.

“With so many different facilities streaming content, there will always be issues with how to centralize the content and stream it as efficiently as possible,” added Burt. “The Haivision encoders provide the low latency we need to ensure that the system also performs to our high quality standards.”

“IHOP is a textbook case of a house of worship that is effectively leveraging advanced Internet streaming technologies to spread its message to the widest-possible audience. The numbers speak for themselves: every month, the IHOP prayer room stream receives more than 120,000 unique hits,” said Mirko Wicha, president and CEO of Haivision. “IHOP is just one more example of how Haivision is delivering end-to-end technologies to address the diverse media distribution needs of houses of worship.”

Wohler Supplies SoundField UPM-1 Stereo-to-5.1 Upmixers to All Mobile Video

SAN FRANCISCO — Nov. 1, 2011 — Wohler Technologies today announced that it has supplied three SoundField UPM-1 stereo-to-5.1 audio upmix processors to All Mobile Video (AMV), an outside broadcast, uplink, and sound stage facilities company. The sale is Wohler’s first in its capacity as a new U.S. distributor for SoundField. The UPM-1 systems will be used among AMV’s various OB vehicles to upmix videotape and archive material for 5.1 transmission, in AMV’s uplink truck, and at its Gateway teleport station in New Jersey to upmix audio for opera simulcasts from the Met in New York.

“SoundField upmix solutions for recording and processing in stereo and multichannel surround formats are renowned for their quality, which will enable AMV to maintain very high audio quality across the live performances and events the company covers,” said Michael Descouteau, vice president of sales, North America, at Wohler. “The UPM-1 is a perfect fit.”

AMV covers large-scale outside broadcast events including the MTV Video Music Awards and international sports fixtures such as the U.S. Open golf tournament and IAAF World Championships in Athletics. It also handles the OB and uplink requirements of the Metropolitan Opera’s regular international simulcasts to cinemas in Europe and Asia.

For live-to-theater events, AMV transmissions typically play in theaters equipped with surround sound systems. Because many edit houses and production companies can’t handle 5.1, and because recorded audio content coming off of tape is stereo, upmixing stereo to 5.1 is a common requirement in delivering such transmissions. AMV will use its new UPM-1 systems from SoundField to replace a variety of older upmixing boxes and to improve the overall audio quality of the 5.1 output, particularly for musical performances.

“Our older boxes work well on interview material and film soundtracks, but I’ve felt for some time that there was room for improvement on musical content,” said Ian Vysick, All Mobile Video’s head audio engineer and audio development specialist. “Tweaking things on those older processors involves accessing a lot of deep menus and repeated button-pressing, so when Wohler suggested I try the UPM-1, I asked them to bring one to a live musical event I was mixing. I couldn’t have hoped for a better test, as the show covered the three major types of content we always have to get into 5.1: music, film soundtracks, and dialogue. I compared the UPM-1 with our existing processors, and it took all of about 30 seconds to decide which was best.

“The UPM-1 was exactly what I’d been looking for, as it was easier to set up and more natural-sounding than other boxes. You put the audio in, adjust a few controls, and an amazing-sounding 5.1 upmix comes out. The sound is so impressive that while I was working with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the broadcast mix engineer there mistook the UPM-1′s 5.1-from-stereo upmix for a discrete-channel mix from his 5.1 stems. He said it was the only viable upmix he’d ever heard, and he couldn’t believe how good it sounded.”

Haivision’s KulaByte and HyperStream to Enable Live Streaming of Show Content at WFX 2011

WFX Counts on Live Internet Encoding and Transcoding to Stream Real-Time Content Including Church Communications and Multisite Strategies

MONTREAL and CHICAGO — Nov. 1, 2011 — Haivision Network Video today announced that its KulaByte live Internet encoder and HyperStream live cloud transcoding technology will drive the WFX Live Studio, a feature of WFX 2011 (Worship Facilities Conference and Expo) to be held in Dallas Nov. 9-11. The WFX Live Studio is a full-function recording and streaming-video broadcast studio that will provide live coverage of the show floor and conference sessions to Internet viewers.

During the WFX 2011 show, the Haivision technology will serve two independent live streams to the WFX website: a continuous stream from the exhibit floor from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and live coverage of all keynote sessions and educational presentations. The WFX Live Studio will feed two KulaByte encoders, each contributing a bandwidth-optimized stream from the conference center to the cloud-based HyperStream transcoder. In the cloud, HyperStream will then transcode each contribution stream into multiple bit rates and multiple formats to serve the WFX website using Adobe(R) Flash(R) dynamic and Apple(R) HTTP adaptive streaming systems. By using the HyperStream cloud-based transcoder to create the different bit rate streams, the contributed streams can take full advantage of available bandwidth to maximize video quality.

“We are very grateful to Haivision for providing the streaming technology to power the WFX Live Studio,” said Amy Reddington, director of event operations at EH Publishing, producer of WFX. “Not only will our attendees and Web audience be able to stay up to date on show-floor happenings and conference proceedings, but they’ll also be able to see firsthand how state-of-the-art Internet encoding technology can transform their worship activities and bring their message to vast new audiences.”

The WFX Live Studio will host a full series of educational presentations, panel discussions, and interviews broadcast live to an Internet audience that will interact with the presenters during Q&A periods. In addition, attendees will observe and engage with experts on video capture, lighting, streaming broadcast technology, and social media. Educational sessions at the WFX Live Studio will include church and independent experts on multisite strategies, as well as a discussion of church communication and social media tools.

“The WFX 2011 setup will be very similar to that of many of our hundreds of faith-market clients,” said Peter Maag, executive vice president of Haivision. “So extending WFX beyond the conference hall is a great opportunity for attendees to experience the potential of live streaming, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to show them.”

Haivision offers products that are complementary to KulaByte and HyperStream for media applications in the faith market. These products include Mako(TM) and Makito(TM) codecs for connecting multisite churches; the Furnace(TM) video distribution system to enable recording, video-on-demand, and internal video distribution; and the CoolSign(TM) digital signage system to deliver dynamic content to public area displays.

Haivision, an official sponsor of WFX 2011, will be demonstrating KulaByte, HyperStream, and other media solutions at WFX 2011 in booth 442.

MELVILLE, N.Y. — Oct. 27, 2011 — Chyron today announced that in close collaboration with Arizona State University (ASU), the Cronkite News Service newsroom — part of the world-renowned Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication — will be renamed the Chyron Media Center. Within the state-of-the-art news studios, Chyron’s cloud-based Axis World Graphics and CAMIO graphics management systems will give students at ASU access to the industry’s most advanced tools for news graphics creation and delivery.

The school consistently ranks in the top 10 in the annual Hearst intercollegiate journalism competition, often called the Pulitzers of college journalism.

“Our students’ ability to get experience on such cutting-edge technology helps give them a strong leg up in today’s competitive job environment,” said Mark Lodato, assistant dean and news director of the Cronkite School. “This is exactly the sort of workflow you’ll find in newsrooms today, which means our students will be well-prepared to enter the workforce.”

Axis World Graphics simplifies, streamlines, and facilitates the graphics creation process, enabling artists, reporters, production assistants, and news producers to create broadcast-quality graphics using their own graphics packages.

Chyron’s CAMIO is a complete news graphics management solution that gives users control over the look and delivery of newsroom graphics. Graphic artists can build assets and upload them once for immediate access by output devices and newsroom clients.

“The Cronkite School is a leader in developing high-caliber media and communications specialists, and we are pleased that the new Chyron Media Center will support the school as it continues this fine tradition of excellence,” said Michael Wellesley-Wesley, president and CEO at Chyron.
