Haivision’s Furnace 5.8 IP video system supports advanced integration, security, and control capabilities for IP video recording and distribution. Coupling the Furnace InStream player with the Makito HD H.264 encoder supports end-to-end AES 256-bit encryption, assuring high levels of protection for video assets. InStream also supports the HD H.264 HD toolset, enabling digital broadcast channels to be streamed live through the Furnace architecture. The release supports Intelligent Publishing, with which, after recording a video segment, users can automatically make that video available securely to authorized users according to established metadata. The recording process can be executed through the Furnace user interface or through a secure Application Programming Interface. The system extends the standard-based API to allow granular integration with its Command and Control module, which gives administrators exact control over InStream players and Stingray set-top boxes.
