At the upcoming NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) 2017 show, Haivision will debut its Makito X HEVC video decoder.

Haivision says the Makito X HEVC video decoder, the latest product addition to its Makito product line, provides users with an end-to-end transport solution that delivers live HEVC/H.265 and AVC/H.264 video over any network at low bit rates.

“The Makito X series continues to be the industry’s go-to encoding and decoding platform for high-quality, low-latency video backhaul,” comments Peter Maag, chief marketing officer, Haivison. “Now with an end-to-end HEVC video workflow and our SRT protocol, broadcasters can realize even more benefits for low-cost video transport over any bandwidth constrained network, including public Internet.”

Features of Haivision’s Makito X HEVC Video Decoder

Available as a single or dual-channel device, the Makito X HEVC decoder delivers HD video to 3G-SDI and HDMI interfaces with support up to 1080p at 60Hz.

The company says the Makito X HEVC decoder complements its Makito X HEVC encoder to deliver HEVC or H.264 1080p video with low end-to-end latency.

Explaining in greater detail the benefits of its end-to-end solutions, Haivision states that broadcasters can reduce Opex for live video workflows by reducing bandwidth requirements by as much as 50 percent.

Haivision’s SRT protocol powers the Makito encoders and decoders to provide secure 128/256 AES encryption, and dynamic endpoint adjustment based on realtime network conditions to produce the best possible video at all times.

The Montreal, Canada-based manufacturer elaborates on the SRT protocol’s ability to maximize video quality based on network conditions by explaining the technology assures quality-of-service by addressing issues related to packet loss, jitter, latency and fluctuating bandwidth.

Haivision is also offering existing Makito X users an upgrade to step up into the new HEVC products.

The Makito X HEVC encoder and decoder both offer the same H.264 performance as the base model Makito X products, and they add the benefit of HEVC.
