The KulaByte™ Internet encoding and transcoding systems are ideal for streaming live events to Dynamic Flash and Adaptive HTTP Live Streaming networks. Being 100% software-based, the KulaByte systems can take advantage of server performance scalability, both on premise and in the cloud, protecting your investment over the long term.

The KulaByte encoder provides the most efficient use of uplink bandwidth due to extremely high quality to bitrate performance and tight bitrate control. KulaByte encoders feature Dynamic Stream Shaping (DSS) that automatically adjusts the bitrate according to network conditions so your streaming experience is maximized at all times. The KulaByte encoder is ideal for streaming live events, including, high action live sports, music and entertainment, house of worship, distance learning, and mobile news gathering and delivering streams tailored for PCs, mobile devices, and live streaming players.

The KulaByte transcoder, either as an onsite system or deployed as software in the cloud, converts single source streams into HD cascades with the highest video quality. Serving Dynamic Flash and Adaptive HTTP Live Streaming delivery, the KulaByte transcoder enables every device on every network with the best video experience possible. For larger streaming organizations, coordination of all encoding and transcoding assets is critical. To manage multiple encoders and transcoders regardless of location, Haivision has created Hydra. Hydra is a simple to deploy web-based system that aggregates all of your streaming assets in one simplified interface designed to ease all of the associated workflows and streaming pipelines.

By combining the high quality and uplink efficiency of KulaByte encoding with the power and scalability of KulaByte transcoding in the cloud, you can balance and take full advantage of your precious resources: limited on-site computing power, defined uplink bandwidth, limitless and inexpensive cloud computing - to achieve the highest quality streaming experience.

Live Internet Streaming

To provide the Haivision's Internet Media solution delivers software based encoding for live Internet video delivery, including transcoding appliances, software, and cloud services.


KulaByte™ encoding software delivers high-quality HD content to desktop and mobile devices, while the cloud-based KulaByte™ Cloud Transcoder transforms live video streams into the many formats and bitrates required for multiscreen delivery.
