The Barracuda, to be introduced at InfoComm 09, provides flexible low-latency SD encoding that addresses a wide array of IP video users in a small footprint. It’s compatible with industry-standard set-top boxes and integrates smoothly with HaiVision's Video Furnace System 5 for end-to-end H.264 IP video delivery.

"The Barracuda is an exciting addition to the market in that it provides robust H.264 encoding capabilities unique in a product of this size and price point," said Mirko Wicha, HaiVision president and CEO. "Using the BARRACUDA to generate multiple stream resolutions simultaneously, users can easily and cost-effectively distribute H.264 IP-based media across a range of platforms and target devices."

The Barracuda supports SDI, S-video, and composite video inputs and is available as a standalone appliance or in a high-density 4 RU rackmount chassis holding as many as 21 Barracuda miniblade encoders.

With less than 70 ms of encoding latency, as well as forward error correction (FEC) and encryption capabilities, it’s aimed at real-time and mission-critical applications.

When used with HaiVision's Video Furnace System 5, it enables affordable encoding and distribution of live video to computers and set-top boxes, creation of scheduled playback channels for enterprise TV and signage, and recording of content and delivery of video on demand.

The Barracuda's encoding versatility lets users to distribute end-to-end IP video to virtually any platform.

Barracuda will be on display at HaiVision's booth (#2979) at InfoComm 09, June 17-19 in Orlando.

At the 2009 NAB Show, HaiVision introduced Makito, an encoding platform for end-to-end delivery in formats up to 1080p60.
