Czech IPTV Provider MATTES AD Uses HaiVision H.264 MAKO Codec

A vendor of high definition (HD) H.264 TelePresence Codecs, HaiVision Network Video, has announced that the Czech Republic's MATTTES AD, a leader in the country's video-over-IP (VoIP) market, is using the hai1000 series encoder and MAKO-HD codec to enable IPTV delivery of the new TV Barrandov channel in HD.
Installed by MATTES AD at the TV Barrandov studio, the HaiVision system enables delivery of the new channel in uncompressed studio quality to subscribers of MATTES AD's 9802.tv IPTV service. As TV Barrandov went to air in January 2009, MATTES AD subscribers were the only viewers in the Czech Republic to see its programming in full-HD resolution. Other broadcasters offered the downconverted SD signal.
Jiri Banas at MATTES AD, said: "Our team enjoys pushing the limits of technology, and in the realm of HD broadcasting, we found that it was up to us to innovate and implement new technologies to make HD content widely available to viewers. Only the HaiVision system met our criteria for a high-quality HD encoder with a reasonable price."
Mirko Wicha, HaiVision CEO, said: "HaiVision is certainly excited about assisting the Czech Republic to take a world leading position with regard to HD video over IP for consumers."
The HaiVision MAKO-HD encoder accepts the TV Barrandov studio's HD-SDI signal and outputs an IP stream that, in turn, is delivered over the company's FTTx network. The MAKO-HD supports up to 1080p HD with 70 milliseconds of end-to-end latency. Wit full control over encoding parameters, MATTES AD is able to address particular bandwidth constraints and content requirements as it delivers high quality video. When MATTES AD compared video encoded by various systems at the same bit rate, the stream from the HaiVision system showed a superior image quality.
MATTES AD worked with local systems integrator MediaStream to select the proper HaiVision products and configuration. With expertise in both networking and broadcast technologies, MediaStream was able to work with engineers at the TV studio and at HaiVision to ensure compatibility of the HaiVision encoder with the HD-SDI feed generated by the plant and to make sure that all network issues were addressed appropriately.
