HaiVision Systems Inc. (Montreal, Canada), the world leader in performance video encoding technology, today announces a supply partnership with One Touch Systems, the world's leading provider of solutions for live, enterprise-wide communications and learning. One Touch now integrates HaiVision's TASMAN high performance H.264 video encoder into their satellite based communication and learning solutions.

"Our systems combine live satellite distribution of audio and video to thousands of sites, with return participant audio, and the low latency of the TASMAN is critical to achieving the highest levels of interactivity," says Dave Stewart, One Touch Chief Technology Officer. "In addition, the TASMAN provides excellent video quality and full compatibility with standard MPEG-4 AVC software codecs used within our solutions."

H.264 has achieved broad acceptance within the satellite community because it is about 60% more bandwidth efficient than MPEG-2, reducing the cost of satellite transmission dramatically. HaiVision is a leader in the development of H.264 encoding platforms, and has 4 levels of H.264 hardware solutions:

  •     OSCAR - for the most cost effective QuickTime compatible streaming
  •     TASMAN - for performance oriented streaming and communications
  •     hai1000 - for carrier grade multi stream interactive applications such as telepresence
  •     MAKO-HD - the fastest codec for interactive high definition (up to 1080p) achieving a remarkable 60 millisecond end to end latency

"One Touch delivers the premier interactive satellite solution for communication and training within governmental and corporate clients," emphasizes Peter Maag, HaiVision Vice President. "We are thrilled to contribute to their highly tuned systems."
