Kraken Video Transcoder and Encoder

Haivision’s Kraken video transcoder and encoder is designed to deliver high quality video and metadata at very low latency – even in the most extreme of environments. Learn how this MISB and STANAG transcoder and encoder can ingest video from multiple sources in multiple formats, ensuring that downstream systems are receiving real-time video and metadata with minimal delay.



Designed for mission critical applications, Haivision Kraken is a powerful transcoder and encoder for delivering real-time video and metadata at very low latency. Able to withstand even the most extreme environments, Kraken can ingest motion imagery from numerous sources in HEVC, H.264, and other formats. For beyond line of sight links with limited bandwidth, streams can be transcoded to HEVC to reduce bit rates by up to 50%.

Kraken provides low latency distribution of full-motion video for viewing on desktops, mobile devices, and set-top boxes. Compliant with MISB and STANAG, Kraken can capture and stream KLV metadata from multiple sources, along with real-time video. To optimize bandwidth, MISB 0601 tags can be filtered out in favor of high quality video.

Available as a ruggedized appliance, high density server, and VMware, Kraken is ready for deployment all types of ISR environments. SRT, developed by Haivision is fully supported to ensure reliable, secure, and low latency video streaming. Ensure mission success with Kraken. Deliver video from any platform, over any network, and to all types of monitoring and analysis systems.
