Haivision, a provider of video networking, digital signage and internet protocol (IP) video distribution solutions, unveiled its Furnace 5.8 IP video system that supports advanced integration, security and control capabilities for IP video recording and distribution, the company says in a written statement.
Furnace 5.8, coupled with Haivision’s Makito HD H.264 encoder and the Furnace’s patented InStream player, supports end-to-end AES 256-bit encryption, assuring the highest level of protection for video assets, Haivision says. A related development is InStream’s support of the complete HD H.264 HD tool set, enabling digital broadcast channels to be streamed live through the Furnace architecture.
To further the effectiveness of enterprise-wide integration of Furnace 5.8 IP, the system includes a feature called “intelligent publishing,” the company says. With intelligent publishing , after recording a video segment users can now automatically make that video available securely to authorized users according to established metadata.
The recording process can be executed through the Furnace user interface, or through an extensive and secure “application programming interface” (API) if integrated third-party control systems are employed. With Furnace 5.8, the system’s standard-based API is further extended to allow granular integration with its popular Command and Control module, an enhancement that gives administrators exact control over InStream players and Stingray set-top boxes.
