Haivision Encoders Qualified for Akamai Media Services Live
The KB Series of encoders are used by live event producers to deliver adaptive bitrate HEVC.
Haivision’s KB Series HEVC/H.264 live video encoders are qualified for use with Akamai Media Services Live.
The KB Series of encoders are used by live event producers to deliver adaptive bitrate HEVC or H.264 cascades to the cloud for distribution to broad audiences watching over the public internet.
The latest release of Haivision's KB Mini features an even more lightweight and compact form factor and enhanced CPU/GPU adaptive bitrate encoding of H.264 and HEVC, making it ideal for live event streaming.
“Reducing the delay between online live internet streaming and live/linear broadcast has challenges that differ from traditional broadcasting. To be successful, you have to deliver streams with flawless reliability, and a broadcast-level quality to viewers while maintaining low latency,” said Michael Fay, vp of Media Product and Operations, Akamai. “We’re extremely pleased that Haivision’s KB Mini encoder is simplifying first-mile live origin contribution workflows and taking advantage of our liveOrigin capabilities, making it easier than ever for event producers to reliably stream to the Akamai Media Services Live solution.”
The combination of Haivision’s KB Mini and Akamai Media Services Live means end-to-end delivery is now possible with a 10-second latency threshold, claims Haivision.
