Montreal, Canada -- HaiVision Systems Inc., the leader in high
performance network video technology, is launching the hai1000 MAKO-HD
high definition video encoder decoder system at InfoComm this week
(Booth 4846). Based on HaiVision’s True-HD technology, the hai1000
MAKO-HD is the lowest latency HD H.264 codec available achieving
less than 120 milliseconds end to end latency and supports high
definition resolutions up to 1080p. Fully compatible with the
hai1000 series, the MAKO-HD is an encoder/decoder board for the six
slot hai1000 system allowing up to 5 bi-directional channels of HD
within a single system. The MAKO-HD is designed for interactive
communications within application areas such as telepresence,
conferencing, broadcast, education and medical.
The MAKO-HD technology supports full
motion video with uncompromised quality at 720p/60, 720p/50, and
1080i. For the most precise video requirements, MAKO-HD as well
supports 1080p at 30 frames per second. A remarkable feature
incorporated into the MAKO-HD is the ability to support either HD
video or RGB graphics or a combination of the two inputs on the same
codec. This allows the simultaneous transmission of multiple streams
of video and multiple streams of graphics content at guaranteed
frame rates in industry standard H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC).
“The MAKO-HD technology is certainly the crowning glory on
HaiVision’s years of efforts with H.264,” expresses Peter Maag,
HaiVision’s Vice President. “Not only have our engineers succeeded
in delivering, now, four levels of H.264 performance for
communications and streaming, but they have achieved amazing
performance benchmarks by breaking 120 milliseconds.”
The MAKO HD is fully compatible with installed hai1000 systems
giving HaiVision users very elegant upgrade paths from very high
quality standard definition to high definition video. MAKO-HD is
also compatible with HaiVision’s recently announced Invitation™
technology allowing performance communications systems (telepresence)
to seamlessly bridge to traditional videoconferencing devices.
Come see HaiVision’s launch of MAKO-HD in booth 4846 at InfoComm in
Anaheim, June 19-21.
