MONTREAL, CANADA – APRIL 25, 2017 – Haivision, is pleased to announce that their award-winning KB Series HEVC/H.264 live video encoders are qualified for use with the new Akamai Media Services Live capabilities for low-latency live and linear online video delivery.

The KB Series of encoders are used by live event producers to deliver adaptive bitrate HEVC or H.264 cascades to the cloud for distribution to broad audiences watching over the public internet. The latest release of the KB Mini features an even more lightweight and compact form factor and enhanced CPU/GPU adaptive bitrate encoding of H.264 and HEVC, making it ideal for live event streaming. Through the powerful combination of the KB series of encoders and Akamai Media Services Live, event producers have a solution for live event streaming that is suitable for low-latency, broadcast quality streaming experiences to viewers wherever they may be watching.

“Reducing the delay between online live internet streaming and live/linear broadcast has challenges that differ from traditional broadcasting. To be successful, you have to deliver streams with flawless reliability, and a broadcast-level quality to viewers while maintaining low latency,” said Michael Fay, Vice President of Media Product and Operations, Akamai. “We’re extremely pleased that Haivision’s KB Mini encoder is simplifying first-mile live origin contribution workflows and taking advantage of our liveOriginTM capabilities, making it easier than ever for event producers to reliably stream to the Akamai Media Services Live solution.”

For years, broadcasters have been challenged to deliver video streaming experiences that match the delay inherent to broadcast TV – typically in the vicinity of 6 seconds from source to eyeballs. With the combination of Haivision’s KB Mini and Akamai Media Services Live, end-to-end delivery is now possible with a 10-second latency threshold, opening up new possibilities for using secure, high-quality live video streaming for the most demanding applications including: live event streaming, second screen experiences, broadcast contribution, gaming and more.

Today’s low-latency deployments involve ingesting content at the source, securely live streaming contribution to the cloud, intelligently transporting over the internet, and distributing to player devices. The KB Mini accelerates the first mile contribution to ensure that live video streaming from the source to the cloud is reliably and securely delivered at the highest quality possible even when local internet performance is unpredictable.

“Haivision customers have been successfully leveraging KB encoders and transcoders for their live event streaming with best-in-class low latency first-mile contribution,” said Sylvio Jelovcich, vice president global alliances, Haivision. “By leveraging the Akamai Media Services Live liveOriginTM delivery capabilities, we are working together to improve video streaming and opening up new opportunities for those who need low-latency video delivered live to broadest audiences.”

Haivision innovates in the areas of live hardware and software encoding/decoding, video stream transport and management. The company is dedicated to pushing the technology envelope, and fostering partnerships and collaboration within the industry to expand the ecosystems of performance video that its customers depend on.

  • Working with video over IP, it isn’t very long before you find yourself working with Techex. They are the Swiss Army knife you need in your toolbox.
    Tony MundaySky
  • I have had the pleasure of working with Techex on several complex broadcast projects over a number of years. In a world where over promising and under delivering is the norm, this is a breath of fresh air. When the going gets tough in a project as it inevitably does at some stage, Techex always pulls out the stops.
