Mission Critical Video Solutions

Haivision is unique in combining industry-leading technology with our hardware video encoders, software-based transcoding engines, and ultra low latency decoding platforms to deliver glass-to-glass full motion video (FMV) and related KLV metadata from any sensor to any operator, analyst or decision maker, whether stationary or mobile. Haivision supports industry standard MISP-compliant Key-Length-Value (KLV) metadata transport within the MPEG-2 transport stream.

Makito X HEVC

Makito X HEVC video encoder transports secure, high quality, extreme low latency, 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 defense organizations for live, bandwidth constrained streaming and distribution applications.

Makito X Compact Rugged

Makito™ XCR combines the unrivaled low latency and performance of Haivision’s commercial Makito X 3G/HD/SD-SDI/Composite (NTSC/PAL) H.264 encoder in a completely ruggedized MIL-STD-810G/DO-160G compliant form-factor with full KLV/CoT metadata support.

Makito X Harsh - Encoder & Decoder

The Makito X encoder and decoder are an industrial-grade fanless appliances designed for high operating temperature environments within static deployment applications. The Makito X family of H.264 encoders and decoders delivers a complete field-proven video solution offering confidence, low latency, security, and reliability with a mature feature set. 

Kraken CR - HEVC Encoder/Transcoder

The Kraken CR is a Compact Rugged all-in-one full motion video (FMV) encoder/transcoder. Designed for on the move bandwidth constrained applications with size and weight limitations, the Kraken CR leverages next generation encoding/transcoding to get the highest picture quality out of available bandwidth for situational awareness and command & control (C2) video. 

Proven Standards Compliance

All of Haivision’s products are designed to be fully interoperable with a wide range of real-time viewing and exploitation systems. Haivision was the first company to achieve JITC certification for 1080p60 video compression and the only company to provide both commercial-grade and airborne ruggedized H.264 encoding with proven MISP and STANAG 4609 compliance.
