Makito X HEVC video encoder transports secure, high quality, live HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 video over any network at extremely low bit rates. Offering the award-winning features of the Makito X encoding platform but now with an additional HEVC encoding engine, Makito X HEVC is the ideal encoder for broadcasters and defense organizations for live, interactive and bandwidth constrained backhaul and distribution applications.
Makito X HEVC can reduce bandwidth requirements by 50%, while maintaining video quality when compared to H.264 encoders. The Makito X HEVC differs from competing HEVC encoders by combining the existing four engine H.264 architecture found in the Makito X while adding a dedicated HEVC encoding engine to the appliance. Makito X HEVC supports existing H.264 workflows, and offers the best-in-class HEVC performance, future proofing your video streaming workflows.
The Makito X HEVC is a compact, lightweight appliance with a highly efficient hardware architecture. The Makito X HEVC is excellent for space constrained applications or in remote contribution workflows. The Makito X HEVC is also available in blade format, compatible with Havision’s MB6 (1RU) and MB21 (4RU) chassis, making it an great fit for server rooms and headends. In addition, the Makito X HEVC is fully compatible with existing Makito X workflows, allowing for a simple HEVC upgrade path.
Haivision’s SRT network protocol features packet loss recovery, encryption, real time end-to-end network statistics, options to easily manage firewall traversal and more, for the highest quality live video over any network. HEVC reduces Operating Expenses (OPEX) in your broadcast workflows by reducing bandwidth requirements. Further OPEX savings are possible by leveraging SRT to transmit video streams over less expensive connections such as the public internet.
Makito X HEVC encoder is ideal for full-motion video (FMV) applications requiring STANAG and MISP compliant Key-Length-Value (KLV) metadata. Capable of aggregating metadata from many sensors and sources, the Makito X HEVC fuels downstream networks, exploitation systems, and viewers, with frame accurate synchronization. Makito X HEVC is designed for ISR applications where uplink network bandwidth is limited and costly. Increases in compression efficiency impact mission intelligence thanks to increases in quality per bit of video data.
Many organizations are considering HEVC when building specifications for video backhaul projects. Relatively new, HEVC is still not fully understood by the market.
Haivision has created this white paper to share a high level explanation of HEVC and illustrate which workflows benefit most from this new standard. Get the white paper here.
