MONTREAL and CHICAGO — Nov. 10, 2009 — HaiVision Network Video today announced the immediate availability of the latest MAKITO™, a high performance HD H.264 encoder that now supports both component analog and DVI inputs. The MAKITO delivers low latency, full frame rate H.264 encoding of high definition video up to 1080p60, or computer graphics resolutions up to 1280×1024 60Hz (SXGA). The new MAKITO complements HaiVision’s release of the MAKITO-SDI earlier this year, which supports resolutions up to 1080p60 over SDI (including SDI, HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI). The new MAKITO also eliminates the need for converters or scalers when HD-SDI is not available.
"The MAKITO is evolving to support all high definition performance streaming applications," explains Mirko Wicha, president and CEO at HaiVision Network Video. "First we lead the way with 1080p60 3G-SDI. Now we are following up to accommodate component video and full frame rate computer graphics (DVI) encoding to H.264. The MAKITO is a very popular platform."
The MAKITO supports HiLo Streaming™ — the ability to emit both high and low bandwidth streams for simultaneously addressing users with different bandwidth and computing resources. The MAKITO also distributes 100 percent secure video through the Video Furnace System 5 IP video system using AES 128 bit encryption.
HaiVision’s MAKITO, MAKITO-SDI, and BARRACUDA™ (for standard definition only) all share the same form factor and are available as a very compact single encoder appliance or as a mini blade that can be used within a 21-slot chassis that occupies only 4 RU. The product family now supports all common input types and resolutions.
