Low Latency FMV Transcoding for ISR Workflows
Haivision Kraken can encode or transcode real-time motion imagery streams to optimize video quality over constrained networks and datalinks. Kraken uses Microsoft’s global network of cloud regions and the public internet to distribute high-quality and encrypted full-motion video to multiple destinations for use in defense and ISR applications.
As a transcoder, Kraken ingests compressed video data in a broad range of common streaming formats and converts that video stream to the most efficient standards-based formats (H.264 or HEVC) with stream settings suitable for downstream networks or video distribution systems. Kraken addresses the inherent bandwidth limitations of mission critical network links, while maintaining real-time low latency transmission of vital video and metadata. Kraken is specifically built for the task of transcoding to disseminate information in a format required by downstream networks, exploitation systems, and viewers, with the lowest possible delay, while preserving metadata with frame-accurate synchronization. Powerful metadata management tools allow Kraken to aggregate multiple sources as required to save valuable bandwidth while preserving geospatial context.
