Haivision has released Viper 1.1, the latest revision of its compact appliance that combines dual-channel HD encoding, low-latency secure streaming, video on demand, and a contextual multichannel record-review-publish workflow all within a single chassis. The company is also introducing the Viper VF, a companion to the Furnace IP video distribution system designed for installations where many rooms need the ability to record independently and then publish the assets to a central video-on-demand system.
The Viper is ideal for capturing, streaming, and publishing events relying on multimedia sources. It streams and records two real-time, full-frame-rate, HD H.264 streams containing either HD video or computer graphics content. The multistream content can be streamed and recorded simultaneously, and accessed securely through Haivision’s browser-independent InStream player.
