MONTREAL and CHICAGO — June 20, 2011 — Haivision Network Video, leading provider of the most advanced video networking, digital signage, and IP video distribution solutions, today announced that Helmut Mauell GmbH, provider of state of the art video wall solutions for operation centers, is using the Makito™ H.264 encoder to stream live video within the Mauell X omnium multiviewer solution. In enabling high performance, real-time streaming of HD H.264 video, the Makito provides exceptional video quality, high reliability, and the low latency performance required to maintain comprehensive situational awareness.
“The X omnium solution is designed to allow operators to monitor a wide range of information sources on a single, scalable, and flexible video wall,” said Marcelo Saraiva, systems engineering manager at Helmut Mauell, Brazil. “We needed a high performance and extremely reliable platform to stream full motion video. The Makito encoder fit the requirements perfectly.”
The Makito is best known for its extreme low latency performance of ~55ms (encoding only) for full HD resolution, standards-based streaming. This makes it ideal for real time delivery to a wide range of platforms — from software decoders to all-digital hardware based decoders like the Makito Decoder.
For its X omnium video wall application, Mauell integrates multiple LCD panels, which are used to display a range of sources including IP camera feeds, off-air broadcast sources, and screen captures from PC workstations. System operators or surveillance monitors are able to determine the placement of each source to suit their operational focus, including the full motion HD or SD video streams provided by the Makito encoder. The solution targets applications for control rooms, network operation centers, and data centers.
“Mauell is well known as a market leader in control room applications for the energy, security, and telecommunications sectors,” said Peter Maag, Haivision executive vice president. “Haivision is extremely proud to have been selected for their groundbreaking solution.”
