Haivision’s Low Latency Dual-Channel HEVC Encoder

Haivision has announced the Makito X HEVC encoder with dual-channel HEVC encoding. It is designed for low latency video backhaul and transmission applications.

The unit is an enhancement of the Makito X H.264 video encoder offering two HEVC encoding engines and including all the established core features, including dual 3G-SDI inputs, support of up to 1080p60 HD video, multi bitrate (MBR) streaming, extensive KLV metadata support and advanced networking capabilities including traffic shaping to optimise bandwidth performance.

The coder is available as a compact appliance or within a 1U or 4U rack mount chassis to support up to 6 HEVC channels per rack unit. .

It is compatible with a variety of HEVC capable broadcast decoders, set-top boxes, soft players (including Haivision’s InStream Mobile), Haivision’s HEVC/H.264 transcoders, and the Haivision Media Gateway.

“Customers look to Haivision for straightforward, practical solutions that work,” said Peter Maag, CMO, Haivision. “The unique combination of our HEVC video compression technology and our SRT network developments are making the possibility of low cost contribution and backhaul a reality.”
