HaiVision showcases Makito1 February 2010
Among a range of recent products, HaiVision is showing Makito, a high performance HD H.264 encoder that supports component analogue and DVI inputs.
Makito delivers low latency, full frame-rate H.264 encoding of high definition video up to 1080p60, or computer graphics resolutions up to 1280×1024 60Hz (SXGA).
The new Makito complements HaiVision’s release of the Makito-SDI earlier this year (which supports resolutions up to 1080p60 over SDI, including SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI) and thus eliminates the need for converters or scalers when HD-SDI is not available.
“The Makito is evolving to support all high definition performance streaming applications,” explained Mirko Wicha, president and CEO at HaiVision Network Video. “First we lead the way with 1080p60 3G-SDI. Now we are following up to accommodate component video and full frame-rate computer graphics (DVI) encoding to H.264. The Makito is a very popular platform.”
Not only does it support HiLo Streaming, the ability to emit both high and low bandwidth streams for simultaneously addressing users with different bandwidth and computing resources, but it also distributes what the company refers to as ‘100% secure’ video through the Video Furnace System 5 IP video system using AES 128-bit encryption.
It also shares the same form factor as the Makito-SDI and the SD-only Barracuda, allowing it to be used as a very compact single encoder appliance, or as a mini blade within a 21-slot chassis that occupies 4RU.
