MONTREAL - April 8, 2009 - HaiVision Network Video, a world -leading vendor of high -performance H.264 encoders, codecs, and video -over -IP systems, today announced that Andy Vaughan, the company's director of U.S. federal sales, will be a presenter at the Military & Government Summit during the 2009 NAB Show. Vaughan will address techniques for successfully applying video -over -IP technologies to the DoD enterprise during the summit session titled "Adapting Commercial, Off -the -shelf (COTS) Solutions to Military Applications."


"Military applications for video are broad and varied, and finding the right COTS solution that excels in these applications while meeting the requirements of the DoD enterprise can be a significant challenge," said Vaughan. "The key to success for effective implementation of video -over -IP technology in military applications lies in identifying a solution that not only offers advanced low -latency encoding and management capabilities, but also integrates smoothly into the existing IT -based, network -centric environment that supports modern warfare while complying with the multiple security layers that can be applied to mission -critical video."

Military applications of video -over -IP include, but are not limited to, distributing real -time full -motion video (FMV) feeds globally for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and C2 capabilities, enabling commanders to communicate effectively, monitoring news feeds for situational awareness, and ensuring that training is always available. The growth of video convergence in the DoD enterprise and the tight integration of video with DoD mission systems demands that the industry expand its definition of COTS and that the government redefine its video application requirements.

Vaughan will leverage insight gained through his extensive experience in engineering and deploying network video technologies in military applications to discuss means of fostering communication between industry and the DoD enterprise and bridging this divide. His presentation also will address the use and potential of video teleconferencing, Web -based streaming, content distribution networks (CDNs), asset and metadata management, knowledge portals, service oriented architectures, e -learning portals, identity management, and desktop security technologies within the DoD enterprise.

Vaughan is a former U.S. Air Force communications officer and network engineer, responsible for the deployment and optimization of tactical IP networks. Over the past 10 years in civilian employment, he has held engineering, sales, and management positions at Lucent, VBrick Systems, and Sonic Foundry. He has been actively involved in helping military organizations deploy network video technologies since 2002.

"HaiVision is proud to be supporting the work of the U.S. military, and we look forward to supporting the important mission they're doing," added HaiVision CEO, Mirko Wicha. "We have seen explosive growth in government and military sectors and we are confident that our recent merger with Video Furnace and the addition of new products at NAB will have a great impact on the industry."

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
