HaiVision Network Video released its new MB6 high-density, six-slot chassis for the company's Makito HD H.264 encoders/decoders and Barracuda SD H.264 encoding systems. Company officials say the chassis can fit up to six Makito encoder blades in a single rack unit, for example.
"The Makito is, by far, the most compact HD H.264 design with full 1080p60 performance and an encoding latency of less than 55 milliseconds," said Peter Maag, senior vice president at HaiVision, in a statement. "The MB6 chassis option provides our most dense configuration option and gives our clients full mix-and-match capabilities with all of our encoder and decoder products within the Makito/Barracuda family."
The Makito delivers secure H.264 HD video combined with flexible distribution features such as Multi-Streaming and HiLo-Streaming for addressing disparate audiences, suiting it well for contribution head-ends, advanced communications systems, and central decode monitoring stations for the enterprise, education, federal, and medical markets.
According to the company, the MB6 chassis allows users to best configure the mix of Makito encoders, Makito decoders, and Barracuda encoders to achieve the functionality they need in a very small footprint. In addition to versatility, the chassis simplifies deployment by offering three power supply options: standard AC, medical-grade AC, and DC.
