haivision KB Max

Haivision has announced a video streaming product in the KB Series, the KB Max portable video encoder for 4K UHD, 360 VR and HD internet streaming.

The KB Max is a small form factor 4K UHD streaming appliance with hardware accelerated encoding, supporting up to 4K UHD 2160p H.264/HEVC.

The KB Max is suitable for 4K 360-degree virtual reality streaming for on-the-go live events and non permanent installations. Packing maximum power into a small box, KB Max reduces the need for cloud transcoding by encoding full adaptive bitrate cascades in HEVC or H.264, or it can send high-quality single bitrate streams up to 4K UHD to all major platforms for cloud transcoding and delivery.

The KB Series of H.264 and HEVC Internet Media Encoders/Transcoders offers options for live event streaming, helping users deliver live video to global internet audiences.

The KB Series is available in four appliance options:

KB Mini: Portable HD H.264/HEVC live ABR encoder/transcoder.
KB Max: Portable 4K UHD or Quad HD H.264/HEVC live ABR encoder/transcoder.
KB Server: Up to Quad HD H.264/HEVC live ABR encoding/transcoding rack mount server.
KB 4K Server: 4K UHD or Quad HD H.264/HEVC live ABR encoding/transcoding rack mount server.
