KIT digital Uses Haivision's KulaByte(TM) Internet Encoder to Power Live Multiplatform Video Streaming for Nautilus Live

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Haivision Network Video today announced that its KulaByte live Internet encoder powers multiscreen video delivery for Nautilus Live, a cutting-edge live ocean exploration program. A part of a complete media system provided by KIT digital, the KulaByte H.264 encoder receives the raw HD video signal from the Nautilus vessel and converts it into multiple H.264 IP streams in the formats required for delivery to the Nautilus Live Roku channel, website, iPhones(R), iPads(R), and other mobile devices.

"Reaching the target audience across a wide array of platforms was critical to the educational mission of Nautilus Live, and KulaByte was an essential component in that effort," said Jesse Francis, solutions specialist, KIT digital, Inc. "This implementation was completed prior to the release of the KIT Video Platform, and so KIT digital worked with KulaByte to convert a single video stream to multiple high-quality formats with minimal latency. We were also impressed with its Internet streaming capabilities, which were able to detect outbound network congestion and automatically adjust the stream bit rates to deliver the best-quality output."
