The TASMAN systems are encoding the live audio video from main auditorium of the conference centre and distributing the low latency live feed of the main conference sessions to over 125 displays within common areas, VIP rooms and lounges, and the press areas within KLCC. The H.264 stream is multicast within the facility to 40 Amino AmiNET125 set top boxes driving the displays.

"We are very impressed with the video quality and low latency of the HaiVision TASMAN system," expresses Richard Soo, IT Manager for the KLCC. "Our main integrator, NETe2 Asia, has provided to us excellent assistance and support in deploying this video over IP distribution system. They helped configure our network specifically to handle the multicast video."

HaiVision's TASMAN delivers H.264 encoding of full resolution full frame rate video at up to 2 Mbps and with less than 200 milliseconds of end to end latency. HaiVision products, including the new MAKO-HD high definition encoder for up to 1080p resolution, are compatible with Amino's AmiNET family of low cost set top box decoders.
