HaiVision Releases hai200 Series IP Video SolutionsProducts for the encoding, management, and decoding of audio/video streams (March 09, 2005)
HaiVision Systems Inc. announced today the release and immediate availability of a new series of compact and versatile IP video products for the encoding, management, and decoding of audio/video streams -- the hai200 Series. The hai200 Series offers the best price/performance value for networked video applications requiring solutions that deliver the highest quality video through multiple formats -- including MPEG-2, H.264 (also known as MPEG-4 part 10) and Microsoft's Windows Media 9 (WM9, also known as VC1) formats.
"The hai200 Series represents an important benchmark for networked video," stated Peter Maag, vice president of HaiVision Systems Inc. "With the introduction of the hai200 Series HaiVision is offering a complete portfolio of unique IP video appliances and infrastructure products to address the most demanding industrial, institutional and business applications, focusing on performance, ease of integration and deployment."
At NSCA this week in Orlando, HaiVision is introducing the following technologies for immediate availability:
hai210 -- a full line of compact and versatile encoders and decoders for IP television, video communications, and information delivery. The hai200 Series eases the deployment and management of IP video so organizations can efficiently address new operational challenges and take advantage of new market opportunities. Based on a unique, small form factor, low power, and highly reliable design, the hai210 encoders and decoders are available within a single appliance chassis, or within a very high density, industrial 4U rackmount chassis (hai210RM) housing up to 21 encoders/decoders. The hai210E IP video encoder supports high quality, full resolution video MPEG-2 at data rates of up to 15 Mbps. The hai210D IP video decoder supports both MPEG-2 and Windows Media 9 (VC1) streams, and will also incorporate H.264 decoding. The hai200 Series encoders and decoders can be managed individually for point-to-point sessions or in groups for broadcast (multicast) distribution. Already field proven in large deployments, the hai200 Series is perfect for internal corporate IP video broadcast where many displays require simultaneous management. The extremely high density form factor of the hai210RM 21 device chassis is also ideal for centralized encoding or decoding of many channels, as required for control room and broadcast center applications.
hai220XGA -- a conferencing appliance for PC display sharing. The compact, quiet and easy to use hai220XGA is ideal for boardroom-to-boardroom PC graphics and data sharing or for distance education where an instructor needs to share high resolution data without the losses typically related to scan converting such high resolution displays to video. The hai220XGA sends and receives computer graphics data to and from remote locations over an IP network while maintaining synchronization with live conferencing audio and video channels. Achieving refresh rates of up to 15 frames per second, the hai220XGA auto-detects resolutions from 1024x768 to 1600x1200 at a full 24 bits of color.
HaiVision supports all of their products with haiVIEW, HaiVision's easy to use element and session management platform. Further, HaiVision is committed to the management of media, data, and connectivity with breakthrough products focused on storage and retrieval, multi-protocol gateways to enable true interoperability between H.323 and MPEG-2, network interoperability for seamless integration between IP and ATM-based video communication, and enhanced system management. Watch for related product releases over the coming months.
The hai200 Series marks a significant expansion for HaiVision. HaiVision, reputed for having the highest quality network video systems for interactive communication, now offers a wide variety of media appliances and infrastructure tools to address the most demanding requirements of media distribution, on-demand content for desktops, conferencing, multi-media display projects, interactive television, video information services, field communications, and communications, command, control, and intelligence (C3I).
