Haivision Makito™ HD H.264 Encoder Earns SCN/InfoComm 2010 Installation Product Award

Haivision’s Advanced and Affordable HD Video Encoder Highlighted Among Most Innovative Commercial AV Products

MONTREAL and CHICAGO — June 16, 2010 — Haivision Network Video today announced that its Makito™ HD H.264 video encoder has earned an SCN/InfoComm 2010 Installation Product Award in the category of Best Video/Streaming Product. Presented by Systems Contractor News (SCN) at the recently concluded InfoComm 2010 Show, the award honors the most innovative commercial A/V products introduced in 2009.

“The Makito allows A/V integrators to affordably distribute HD video over IP networks,” said Peter Maag, senior vice president at Haivision Network Video. “Since its introduction in 2009 the Makito has become the leading real-time HD encoding product. We’re very pleased that its impact within the commercial A/V space was recognized at InfoComm 2010 with this award.”

The Makito HD video encoder from Haivision is a full-featured, high-performance encoder that combines the efficiencies of H.264 video compression and the image quality of full HD video within a very small form factor at an attractive price point. The Makito supports HD all the way to 1080p60 to ensure designers will be able to meet challenges today and in the future. In addition, the Makito supports HiLo-Streaming™ — emitting both a high-bandwidth and low-bandwidth stream from a single source and enabling designers to accommodate all video users at the best quality level regardless of their location. The Makito family supports HD, SD, and computer graphic inputs including DVI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, component, composite, and S-Video, and is available in various chassis options including a single-unit appliance, a 21-slot 4U system, and the six-slot 1U system, today’s highest density encoding platform available.

The Makito supports AES encryption and forward error correction and is fully integrated with the Furnace, Haivision’s secure and robust end-to-end HD H.264 IP video distribution system.
