MB Chassis Series

High Density, Flexible, and Scalable Chassis


Flexible and scalable solutions for high density deployment

Haivision’s encoders, decoders, and gateways are available as single product appliances or as independent mini-blades. For installations where rack mounting is desired, Haivision offers the MB6 and MB21 enclosures, which can contain up to 6 or 21 encoder/decoder/gateway blades, respectively, within the single highest density platform available.

MB series enclosures feature redundant power supplies, allow for in-service blade replacement and incorporate fan management circuitry to minimize fan noise. MB series enclosures can be populated with various combinations of Haivision’s Makito X and Makito X4 encoders and decoders.

MB6 Six Slot Chassis

The MB6 is designed to support fast deployments of Haivision’s marketleading encoding/decoding systems in the most space constrained installations. The six slot chassis can hold up to 6 Makito X and X4 encoders and decoders in just a single rack unit (1 RU), making it the highest density system available.

MB21 Twenty One Slot Chassis

Designed for high density IP video deployments, the MB21 holds any combination of up to 21 Makito X and X4 encoders and decoders in a 4 RU rack and also features fully redundant power supplies. This high density, cost effective solution has been deployed in broadcast facilities and server rooms worldwide. The MB21 chassis features replaceable fans, fully redundant power supplies and a station alarm interface so as to notify operators when a power supply or fan failure has occurred.

Secure Reliable Transport

Haivision’s Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) technology provides end-to-end security, resiliency and dynamic endpoint adjustment based on real-time network conditions to deliver the best video quality at all times.

With SRT, you can optimize video streaming across unpredictable networks, like the Internet, by assuring quality-of-service when faced with packet loss, jitter, latency, and fluctuating bandwidth.

SRT offers significant operational flexibility and cost savings over (or compared to) satellite or custom network infrastructures.
