HaiVision and Video Furnace merge to deliver unprecedented end-to-end network video solutions
Each company brings industry-leading technology to the merger, and together they offer the only end-to-end high-definition (HD) H.264 IPTV platform for education, corporate, medical, and military video-over-IP distribution systems.
“The combination of HaiVision and Video Furnace technologies delivers the most advanced solution for H.264 IP video distribution,” says HaiVision Network Video president and CEO Mirko Wicha.
“Our integration partners and customers are very excited about having a single-vendor solution in this fragmented market space.”
HaiVision develops the highest performance H.264 encoder hardware, which incorporates the company’s MAKO-HD codec to deliver 1080p HD over IP networks with an imperceptible 70 milliseconds of end-to-end latency. Both HaiVision and Video Furnace are committed to advancing the IP video industry while promoting the universal adoption of H.264 as the HD standard.
“This merger combines advanced hardware and software expertise that is unmatched in the industry,” says Video Furnace founder and HaiVision’s new CTO Joe Gaucher.
“Our combined development capabilities will pave the way for the future of IP video delivery.”
Video Furnace develops the industry’s most powerful and mature IP video distribution system, which includes full recording and video on demand (VOD) functionality. The Video Furnace system delivers HD H.264 IP video to both InStream, the world’s only “zero footprint,” cross-platform fully encrypted client-server player and channel guide system, and the VF-STB, a high-performance HD set-top box.
The InStream player requires no software installation on client computers, enabling secure, simple, and painless IP video deployments.
