Haivision To Demo Streaming Solutions at Akamai Edge 2012
Haivision will showcase two of its newly released streaming solutions: KulaByte, a live, software-based, Internet encoder/transcoder for adaptive bit rate (ABR) streaming, and HyperStream, an Internet media services portfolio that simplifies media distribution over the Akamai HD Network. Both Haivision solutions are intended for delivering high-quality live video to multiple viewing devices. HyperStream Internet media services automate the power of cloud transcoding and CDN connectivity, while KulaByte’s software-based Internet encoding and transcoding leverages server performance scalability on premise and in the cloud.
