High Performance, Low Latency Transcoding The Kraken™ is designed for high performance live video transcoding from MPEG-2/H.264 to H.264, taming mission-critical streams for satellite backhaul, enterprise distribution, and mobile delivery to smart-phones and tablets. It supports end-to-end real-time delivery of video from diverse video sources, datalinks, and distribution networks, offering the best quality at lower bitrates. Within the enterprise, the Kraken securely redistributes high bandwidth digital video broadcasts over local area networks for viewing on desktops and set-top boxes. The Kraken ISR (ISR firmware is optional) provides low latency transcoding for metadata-rich applications, such as military intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) full motion video (FMV) applications.
High Quality, Low Bandwidth DVB Stream Distribution The Kraken prepares digital video broadcast (DVB) streams (MPEG-2/H.264) for distribution across enterprise networks and to viewing devices that are not designed to accommodate high bandwidth and highly volatile streams. As DVB signals are bandwidth intensive, enterprise network resources can become congested, as well as computer processing resources at the edge. The Kraken enables a seamless, secure and manageable multicast framework by standardizing diverse streams sourced from various encoders in preparation for distribution on networks connecting devices of disparate capabilities.
Kraken ISR – Performance Transcoding with Metadata In the world of ISR, systems are designed to collect, process, and disseminate information. Many FMV applications bundle additional information with video streams in the form of metadata, typically in MISP-compliant KLV (Key-Length-Value) format. The Kraken ISR is specifically optimized for the task of disseminating information in a format required by downstream networks, exploitation systems, and viewers, with the lowest possible delay (150-750msec.), while preserving metadata with frame accurate synchronization.
