CP Communications and its subsidiary Red House Streaming have announced they have added Haivision's latest Makito real-time video networking solutions to its live production and streaming inventory.

CP and RHS have already used their new Haivision Makito X4 video encoders and decoders at the South By Southwest (SXSW 2023) festival in March, and will populate Haivision MB6 enclosures with Makito X4 solutions for this month's USATF Bermuda Grand Prix track and field event (20 - 21 May).

CP and RHS have aggressively diversified its portfolio of networked encoders and decoders over the last several years to fulfill specific customer requirements based on each event and application. For SXSW 2023, CP and RHS technicians used Haivision Makito X4 solutions to ensure reliable production in the cloud using an Amazon Web Services (AWS) instance. CP and RHS supplied live video feeds of concerts, lectures and other performances from the event’s main ballrooms and breakout rooms. For the USATF Bermuda Grand Prix event in Devonshire, Bermuda, CP and RHS work with Carr-Hughes Productions on the live production, and use the public internet to encode and decode streams over a local area network.

"Most of our major sports and live event production clients request Haivision because of the very reliable, low-latency service they offer for H.264 and HEVC video transport over unpredictable networks," said Kurt Heitmann, CEO of CP Communications and Red House Streaming. "As the original developers of the SRT protocol, they understand how to best optimize video streaming performance over networks of varying quality and design. The Makito X4 adds Haivision’s latest improvements in forward error correction, latency and format flexibility, while their multichannel MB6 frames increase channel density and system modularity to properly service each event."

CP and RHS acquired Haivision's new MB Series MB6 enclosures at the same time, with Heitmann noting that the frames are flexibly shared across their trucks and flypacks.

Heitmann added that CP and RHS are not just a Haivision house, they fulfill a need for a specific service level. CP and RHS also offer Aviwest, Kiloview, Mobile Viewpoint and Videon networking solutions. Aviwest solutions were used for several major golf productions this spring, including the 2023 ACC Women’s, ACC Men’s and Big 12 Men’s Championships.
