Haivision intros new MB6 chassis25 May 2010
Haivision has released the new MB6 high-density six-slot chassis for its Makito HD H.264 encoders and decoders and Barracuda 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.
"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."
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).
