Haivision updates Makito encoder to deliver 25 per cent less latency

Encoder also supports HDR and WCG video contribution

Haivision’s ultralow latency video encoder Makito X4 has been updated to deliver up to 25 percent lower latency, enhanced video quality, and frame accurate multi-stream delivery for remote broadcast.

The specific improvements in the newest release of the Makito X4 encoder include:

  • Enhanced Video Quality – support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Colour Gamut (WCG) encoding for video contribution to complete the highest quality camera to production workflow.
  • Lower Latency – up to 25 per cent reduction in the amount of time to encode video by taking advantage of advanced slice-based encoding techniques.
  • Increased Timing Precision – enabling synchronised multiple-camera streaming for real-time on-premise or cloud-native live broadcast production.
  • HEVC over RTSP  a uniquely capable, extremely high performance, and high picture quality alternative tfuel video management software (VMS) platforms

“Today’s broadcast networks depend on the transmission of real-time video from the field to production centres or cloud production services even when faced with limited bandwidth,” said Peter Maag, Haivision’s CMO. By squeezing the highest picture quality out of every bit transmitted and enabling creatives to produce multiple streams in real-time, Haivision is addressing this core industry challenge.”
