MONTREAL and CHICAGO - - May 20, 2010 - - Haivision Network Video today announced the release of the new MB6 high -density six -slot chassis for the company's Makito(TM) HD H.264 encoders and decoders and Barracuda(TM) SD H.264 encoders. The new chassis affords the highest density available for 1080p60 H.264 encoding, housing up to six Makito encoder blades in a single rack unit (1 -7/8 inch).

"The Makito is by far the most compact HD H.264 design with full 1080p60 performance and an incredible encoding latency of less than 55 milliseconds," said Peter Maag, senior vice president at Haivision Network Video. "The MB6 chassis option provides our most dense configuration option and gives our clients full mix and match capabilities with all of our encoder and decoder products within the Makito/Barracuda family."

Delivering secure H.264 HD video combined with flexible distribution features such as Multi -Streaming(TM) and HiLo -Streaming(TM) for addressing disparate audiences, the Makito is the ideal platform for contribution head -ends, advanced communications systems, and central decode monitoring stations for the enterprise, education, federal, and medical markets. The MB6 chassis allows users to best configure the mix of Makito encoders, Makito decoders, and Barracuda encoders to achieve the functionality they need in a very small footprint. In addition to providing a high level of versatility, the chassis simplifies deployment in any environment by offering three power supply options: standard AC, medical -grade AC, and DC (20 -36 VDC).
