HaiVision announces immediate support for the AmiNET130 IPTV STB with its acclaimed MAKO-HD encoding technology. The MAKO-HD, which supports the lowest latency video encoding available and is a fraction of the cost of competitive products, now delivers full frame rate H.264 encoded video at 1080i or 720p high definition to the Amino platform.
This new development is a critical milestone in the planning of IPTV, video distribution networks, and digital signage systems. Previously, designers either had to rely on costly signage style computer endpoints, expensive video and audio distribution hardware, or if they opted for live network video, had to suffer standard definition video networked to large flat panel displays. Now, integrators can centralize the content delivery and distribute the highest quality HD video content to low cost endpoints over the network. As well unlike traditional computer based signage systems, integrators and their clients alike can be secure with the knowledge that the STB endpoints will not need to be upgraded for more performance in years to come - the video network will always distribute full resolution, full frame rate HD.
