Haivision Encoder, Live Streaming Solution Win Streaming Media Awards
Haivision announced that both its Makito encoder and HyperStream Live streaming solution were selected as Streaming Media Magazine 2012 Readers’ Choice Award winners. Makito received top honors in the Live Hardware Encoder category, while HyperStream Live was selected as Best Multi-Screen/OTT Solution for Content Publishers.
“This year we’ve made significant advancements to our full range of Internet streaming solutions, with a focus on simplifying the broadcasting of extremely high quality ABR video over the Internet,” said Peter Maag, chief marketing officer at Haivision. “The end result is that our solutions provide highly streamlined processes for the delivery of rich media experiences to any platform. It is extremely gratifying that our efforts have been recognized not only by the readers of Streaming Media magazine, but also by the magazine’s panel of streaming media experts when Haivision was recently named one of the Top 100 Companies That Matter the Most in Online Video.”
The Live Hardware Encoder category recognizes top hardware products specifically designed for live encoding. Renowned for its performance, low encoding latency of 55 milliseconds, and multiple stream output capabilities now including RTMP, the Makito H.264 1080p60 encoder appliance won yet another award this year.
The Multi-Screen/OTT Solution for Content Publishers category honors end-to-end solutions for distributing on multiple devices. Haivision’s HyperStream Live streaming service won in this category for its ability to allow content distributors to easily deliver high-quality video over the Internet to any popular mobile device. HyperStream Live is a pay-per-use live cloud transcoding software as a service (SaaS) enabling simplified, adaptive delivery of source video content to set-top boxes, desktops, and mobile devices over the public Internet, requiring minimal uplink bandwidth from the source location. Automating the power of KulaByte cloud transcoding and CDN connectivity, HyperStream Live allows content providers to deliver media to global audiences easily with a simplified and automated process that moves workflows to the cloud.
