Haivision pushes Furnace up to version 5.8

AUTHOR: Inavate

Haivision has upgraded Furnace 5.8 IP video system to bolster security and control and extend the system’s capabilities.

Its Furnace 5.8 IP video system has features that support advanced integration, security and control capabilities for IP video recording and distribution.

Furnace 5.8 can be coupled with Haivision’s Makito HD H.264 encoder and the Furnace’s InStream player supports end-to-end AES 256-bit encryption. Furthermore, InStream supports the HD H.264 HD toolset enabling digital broadcast channels to be streamed live through the Furnace architecture.

Release 5.8 supports an Intelligent Publishing feature. After recording a video segment, users can now automatically make that video available securely to authorised users according to established metadata. The recording (NVR) 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 Command and Control module, an enhancement that gives administrators exact control over InStream players and Stingray set-top boxes.

Furnace is an end-to-end system for HD H.264 live distribution, recording, playout and video-on-demand.
