MONTREAL and CHICAGO - - March 15, 2011 - - Haivision today announced that it will provide, for a limited time, a free CoolSign Stand Alone digital signage system to any customer that adds a Haivision Makito(TM) DVI encoder to a new or existing Furnace(TM) IP video system. CoolSign is Haivision's full -featured digital signage solution. The CoolSign Stand Alone system is an integrated hardware/software platform including both the CoolSign server and player components. The integration of Haivision's CoolSign and Furnace systems enables users to establish live and controlled HD signage to every desktop via the license -free InStream(TM) player and to flat -panel displays via Haivision's low -cost Stingray(TM) set -top box.


Haivision's Furnace system is the industry's first and only end -to -end system for HD H.264 live distribution, recording, playout, and video -on -demand. It enables the controlled delivery of HD video throughout an enterprise. The company's patented InStream soft player technology doesn't require installation, works equally on Windows(R), Mac(R), and Linux(R) systems, and every player can be centrally controlled by administrators. The Stingray(TM) set -top box delivers both live HD video and HD signage channels to flat -panel displays. The Makito is the world leading full -featured H.264 HD 1080p60 compact encoder.
