Glowpoint and HaiVision deliver Telepresence and Interactive Broadcast High Definition Video

April 9, 2008 | Chris Payatagool

Glowpoint_logo_300dpi.jpghaivision_160x47px.jpgHaiVision Systems Inc., the world's leading vendor of performance H.264 network video codecs, announces collaboration with Glowpoint, a premiere broadcast-quality, IP-based managed video service provider, to deliver telepresence and interactive broadcast network video services. Telepresence integrators and broadcasters can now source HD network video solution packages validated specifically for the performance and operational characteristics necessary within these segments such as video quality, video latency, system manageability, reliability, and on-line customer service.

HaiVision's MAKO-HD provides the fastest H.264 HD encoding available with 70 milliseconds of latency, supporting up to 1080p resolution. Glowpoint's global "video-centric" network provides the quality of service necessary for high performance video in terms of jitter and network latency combined. Glowpoint combines network quality with "white glove" telepresence and broadcast service management from their Video Network Operations Center (VNOC).

Within the audio-visual services community, integrators experienced in room and theater design have been seeking the perfect marriage of codec and network offering. By incorporating Glowpoint's VNOC service and ultra-clean, video-centric IP network with HaiVision telepresence codecs, integrators can assure their client's world class network video performance delivered into their client's custom environments.

HAI_1060.jpgBroadcasters are as well being driven towards IP-based, telepresence style technology for interactive content contributions. Just as latency dramatically reduces the effectiveness of a conference, it deprives broadcasters of compelling discussions during remote interviews and the effects can even tarnish the image of the participants. Concurrently, broadcasters are looking to reduce costs by moving from expensive satellite and fixed line architectures to IP-based connectivity. The validated HaiVision Glowpoint solution delivers industry standard high performance HD technology over low cost IP networks with the full assurances of a managed service.

The new MAKO-HD codec for the hai1000 delivers full frame rate high definition (HD) video with an unprecedented 70 milliseconds of end to end latency. For complete information on the MAKO-HD and hai1000 products, please visit HaiVision's download center at

Glowpoint will be demonstrating HaiVision's MAKO-HD in live conferences on the show floor at NAB, booth SU13510. Plan to see HaiVision and the MAKO-HD at NAB booth SU11626.
