Haivision Introduces Viper(TM) 1.1 for Distributed Multistream Content Recording, Streaming, and Publishing

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Haivision today announced the immediate availability of Viper(TM) 1.1, the latest revision of its compact appliance combining dual-channel HD encoding, low-latency secure streaming, video on demand, and a contextual multichannel record-review-publish workflow -- all within a single chassis. With the new release, the company is also introducing the Viper VF, a companion to the Furnace(TM) IP video distribution system, tailored to installations where many rooms need the ability to record independently and then publish the assets to a central video-on-demand system.

"The Viper was conceived to address the specific challenges of institutions that need many rooms to record multichannel content actively at any time without relying on networks or central server resources," said Peter Maag, chief marketing officer of Haivision. "Today, the Viper is the most powerful media appliance, whether it's serving as a stand-alone, out-of-the-box IP video system or addressing the needs of distributed content recording."
