Haivision Celebrates 5,000th Makito Sale
Havision marked the sale of its 5,000th Makito Kirk Marple with a giant cake.

It was all smiles and birthday cake at Haivision's NAB Show booth as the firm celebrated the sale of its 5,000th Makito. The H.264 HD encoder-decoder allows fluid transmission of HD video over the Internet.

Speaking at the press conference, Haivision Executive Vice President Peter Maag detailed a newly announced collaboration with Zixi, whose technology is now built into Makito units. Among other things, said Maag, combined Makito/Zixi technology is being used by several clients for ENG newsgathering—primarily on remotes that lack ready access to traditional satellite or network services.

New for the NAB Show were the Kraken Enterprise and Kraken ISR low-latency, real-time transcoding systems. Maag said both formats provide a solution for getting live media content to any and all users at any time—and across multiple platforms.

The Enterprise is geared to large IP streams and converts them for mobile devices, PCs, or set-top boxes. The ISR is configured more for non-broadcast venues such as military intelligence, surveillance and MISP-compliant metadata applications.

Haivision also showed its digital signage products, notably CoolSign Kodak Pulse, where content is controlled from a central location via WiFi. © 2011 NAB
