Makito X2 Available - the Highest Density H.264 HD Encoding Appliance
The Makito X2 carries forward the extreme performance of the original Makito with 55 millisecond encoding latency. Tailored for the most demanding enterprise, medical, and military applications, the Makito X2 also supports multi-bitrate (MBR) streaming and can output 4 different stream bitrate profiles per source (from 32 kbps to 25 Mbps) over MPEG transport stream or RTMP. Other advanced and mature features, many inherited from the Makito, include downscaling, de-interlacing, deblocking, forward error correction, encryption, closed captioning, and key length value (KLV) metadata for full motion video (FMV) applications.
“In order to address today’s video workflows within the enterprise and across the Internet, system designers look for bandwidth efficiency,” said Mirko Wicha, president, and CEO of Haivision. “Not only does the Makito X2 yield the same quality at half the bandwidth, it couples this with remarkable density, performance, and features so our clients can address mission critical applications.”
Haivision’s low latency encoder is ideal for virtually any streaming challenge, including video backhaul, interactive applications, HIPAA compliant streaming in healthcare, delivering critical video feeds to financial traders and general purpose campus IPTV. The Makito X2 can also support enterprise head-end projects such as delivering HD channels throughout a facility over secure, encrypted multicast video using Haivision’s Furnace to centrally manage set top boxes and performance multiview players for broadcast monitoring. Supporting multi-bitrate streaming and a variety of stream encapsulations, the Makito X2 delivers high quality video to decision makers, collaborators, and casual users regardless of location, network, or device.
Haivision will demonstrate the Makito X2 at the NAB Show in Las Vegas on April 8-11 at booth SL6605.
