(PRWEB) January 25, 2007
HaiVision Systems Inc. (Montreal, Canada) today announces the latest H.264 products within their hai200 series -- the TASMAN Digital. The acclaimed TASMAN codec systems are now available with digital video and audio I/O. The TASMAN Digital family supports SDI (Serial Digital Interface) video and AES/EBU digital audio, and are available as an encoder/decoder (TASMAN Digital Communicator), an encoder only (TASMAN Digital Streamer), or as a decoder only (TASMAN Digital Receiver). These products are available immediately and start at $7,495.
The TASMAN supports HaiVision's extremely efficient TRUE H.264 video encoding, also known as MPEG-4 AVC, for point to point communications, video broadcast and streaming, and video backhaul. MPEG-4 AVC is now widely accepted as the de facto standard within video communications, streaming, and broadcast industries due to its bandwidth efficiency. For DVD quality transmission, MPEG-4 AVC saves over 60% of the bandwidth required by traditional MPEG-2 systems. The TASMAN supports video bandwidths as low as 256 kbps and as high as 2 Mbps, making it highly flexible to address both extreme quality and high efficiency network video deployments.
Further, the TASMAN is unique in providing best in class low latency for applications where the highest quality video must be delivered across the network in the shortest amount of time. Achieving below 200 milliseconds latency, the TASMAN is ideal for high end bi-directional video communications as well as mission critical video streaming.
The new TASMAN Digital products support composite video and analog audio in addition to the digital formats. This allows users to easily establish signal monitoring outside of the digital flows. All of the product configurations are housed in a robust 1RU chassis.
The TASMAN is one of three of HaiVision's product lines devoted to the highest quality MPEG-4 AVC H.264 video compression. The OSCAR is HaiVision's low cost codec targeted at general purpose streaming applications. The hai1000 is HaiVision's multi-stream multi-format codec performance system used in applications such as telepresence where multiple camera and multiple displays are managed at each endpoint.
