Tell us a little about Haivision.
In the world of live video encoding and streaming, Haivision has been a longstanding industry leader, focusing on end-to-end broadcast video solutions that offer what matters most: ultra-low latency, reliability, pristine picture quality, and innovation. Haivision was founded in 2004, evolving over the years to provide reliable live video on a global scale. We’re based in Montreal, Canada and Chicago, USA with team members throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
What will you be showcasing at IBC?
The Haivision team is looking forward to returning to IBC to connect with other broadcast professionals and share what’s new in our suite of IP, cloud, and mobile broadcast video solutions. This year, we have some particularly exciting technologies for live production workflows, especially for sports and news broadcasters. Among the most exciting solutions we’re featuring at IBC this year is our portfolio of new 5G mobile contribution products. Haivision’s remote production portfolio now includes mobile IP video solutions that leverage industry-leading 4K/UHD bonded cellular technology for ultra-low latency, multi-camera synchronization, and streamlined workflows on-the-go. We are also focused on sharing solutions that support decentralized remote production. Haivision’s ultra-low latency Makito X4 video encoders and decoders enable broadcast engineers, production staff, and talent to collaborate in real-time, no matter where they are located. Broadcasters and live production teams of all sizes are looking to cloud-based workflows to remotely manage resources, route video, and monitor performance. Adopting cloud solutions not only enables greater flexibility, but it can also optimize remote production workflows including broadcast equipment, streams, and staff. We’ll be featuring our latest cloud solutions at IBC, in support of decentralized collaboration, mobile video, and remote production.
What are you most looking forward to at the show?
It’s always interesting to see what other broadcast solution providers are offering, what trends are on the horizon, and what broadcasters are looking for most. Now that we’re back to attending IBC in person, we’re excited to connect with attendees and share how they can benefit from our latest cloud, IP, and 5G innovations featured in our expanded product portfolio.
What trends do you think will be present at IBC?
One of the biggest trends we anticipate seeing at IBC this year will be the impact of 5G on broadcast production. Every year we conduct an extensive survey of broadcast professionals – The Broadcast IP Transformation Report, which can be viewed here: www.haivision.com and for the 3rd year in a row 5G has come up as the technology that will have the most impact on the broadcast industry. In tandem with this trend, we will be showing our newest additions to the Haivision portfolio with the recent acquisition of Aviwest including our mobile encoders, transmitters, and receivers supporting bonded cellular and 5G for broadcast contribution of live sports and news. We also anticipate that leveraging the cloud for live production and decentralized workflows will be a major trend at the exhibition this year. Since the last IBC, cloud technology has enabled broadcasters to continue to deliver great content despite health and safety concerns – and it’s clear that decentralized collaboration is here to stay. These workflows are enabled by cloud platforms such as Haivision Hub, ultra-low latency encoders and decoders such as our Makito X4, and Haivision Pro for mobile contribution.
What are some of the things you're looking forward to seeing most at IBC?
The Haivision team is really looking forward to meeting our broadcast customers, partners, and other industry leaders to discuss how broadcast production workflows are transforming to meet the growing appetite for high-quality live content. Haivision has a very strong presence in the EMEA region and IBC is the best place to meet so many broadcast professionals in person. We are very much looking forward to seeing new innovations on the market, showing our exciting new products, and meeting with broadcast professionals to discuss how we can support their live productions.
