Our organization is committed to this challenge and to developing related tactical technologies.”

Coleman as the sales director for the US. Air Force and defense intelligence; and Alex Beck as a systems engineer. They join Haivision’s current federal team, which has further open positions.
Haivision has deployed its PiranhaTM low-latency H.264 encoder technology extensively to backhaul and distribute video with metadata from manned and unmanned airborne vehicles (UAVs, also known as drones). For airborne applications, Haivision has also introduced a ruggedized version of its MakitoTM technology, the Makito AIRTM, which delivers H.264 HD video (to 1080p60) with metadata with remarkable encoding performance of fewer than 70 milliseconds. Haivision also offers its FurnaceTM IP video system for secure delivery of live and recorded video and, more recently, its CoolSign digital signage solution.
