Haivision Kraken Transcoder

Category: Brand:


High Performance Transcoding

The Kraken™ transcoder is designed for high performance live video transcoding, taming mission-critical video streams for satellite backhaul via constrained datalinks, enterprise distribution, and delivery to mobile devices. For end-to-end real-time delivery of video from diverse video sources, datalinks and distribution networks, the Kraken offers extremely low latency and superior video quality at low bitrates.


Within the enterprise, the Kraken transcoder redistributes high bandwidth digital video broadcasts over local area networks for viewing on desktops and set-top boxes. For military intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) full motion video (FMV) applications, the Kraken provides low latency transcoding for metadata-rich airborne and ground applications, delivering video to multiple devices at any point in the DoD ISR FMV architecture.

HEVC Live Streaming

Designed for ISR and video backhaul contribution, Haivision’s HEVC solution empowers organizations to send high quality video using low-capacity networks. Haivision enables live HEVC baseband encoding and H.264 to HEVC or HEVC to H.264 transcoding for transporting higher quality video using less bandwidth.

High Quality, Low Bandwidth DVB Stream Distribution

The seamless and secure distribution of digital video broadcast (DVB) streams can be challenging as enterprise networks can get congested and are not designed to accommodate high bandwidth and highly volatile streams. The Kraken prepares DVB streams and enables a secure multicast framework by standardizing diverse streams sourced from various encoders. For stream distribution on networks connecting devices of disparate capabilities, the Kraken maintains high video quality while minimizing bandwidth consumption.

Transcoding with Metadata

For military intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) full motion video (FMV) applications, the Kraken is specifically optimized for disseminating information in a format required by downstream networks, exploitation systems and viewers while preserving KLV metadata with frame accurate synchronization.
