KulaByte in action
Broadcast Quality H.264 for Live Internet Video The KulaByte™ Internet encoder/transcoder is ideal for streaming live events and OTT broadcast channels. 100% software-based, KulaByte combines 4:2:2 high profile H.264 encoding with advanced bandwidth controls to optimize both uplink and Internet transmission of high definition adaptive bit rate (ABR) video streams.
The Power of 100% Software As a software-based platform, KulaByte is equally powerful when deployed for source stream encoding or for highly flexible cloud-based transcoding with a highly reliable Linux operating system. KulaByte encoding systems support up to eight 1080p HD sources, either baseband or as IP streams to be transcoded. When deployed within the cloud, KulaByte stands alone with both transport stream and RTMP ingest, allowing existing workflows to immediately take advantage of cloud efficiencies. As a software platform unrestricted by proprietary hardware technology, an investment in KulaByte will extend for many years, assuring the best ROI in its class.
Technology Designed for Uplink Efficiency KulaByte provides the highest uplink bandwidth utilization and the highest quality streams for any given bitrate. KulaByte systems combine Constant Bit Rate (CBR) output with Dynamic Stream Shaping (DSS) to dynamically change the bitrate to compensate for fluctuations in uplink bandwidth availability. This assures the best Internet delivery of any source stream over any network condition.
Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR), Dynamic Flash and Adaptive HLS Based on an advanced implementation of the highly efficient H.264 compression standard, KulaByte natively supports both Adobe’s Dynamic Flash™ streaming protocol (RTMP) with the largest global penetration of playback devices, and Apple’s Adaptive HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol supported by iPhone™ and iPad™ devices, as well as set-top boxes such as the Roku™ streaming player.
Hydra Management System For larger streaming organizations, coordination of all high quality encoding and transcoding assets is critical. To manage multiple encoders and transcoders regardless of location, Haivision has created Hydra. Hydra is a simple to deploy web-based system that aggregates all of your streaming assets in one simplified interface designed to ease all of the associated workflows and streaming pipelines.
