Haivision Update: Montreal, Canada – March 24, 2020 Against the backdrop of the current COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, working from home has become the new reality for many organizations. However, for some industries it’s not quite that simple. For broadcasters and media companies with complex media workflows, the shift to remote work requires access to low latency video feeds from outside production studios.
In addition to Haivision Makito X video encoders and decoders which are used extensively for field contribution, live interviews, and remote production, Haivision also has flexible solutions that enable broadcasters to securely monitor production, utility, and return feeds. Typically, these solutions are used behind corporate firewalls, but in light of recent events, more of our customers have been extending their workflows to larger numbers of at-home employees. Here are several ways our solutions are helping during this time.
Providing Secure Remote Access to Live Broadcast Feeds
With a focus on providing a service which people can turn to in times of crisis, newsroom operations are critical. In order to maintain the continuity and quality of service that viewers expect, we’re helping broadcasters with a number of measures to ensure that everyone in their organization from executives, talent, field reporters, social media teams, and broadcast engineers have full visibility of essential video content, in real-time, even when they’re not in the studio. For news broadcasters these measures include:
Haivision solution components: Makito X4 Video Encoder, SRT Gateway

Peace of Mind
The challenge for broadcasters is to implement not only a productive work from home solution but also one that’s secure and reliable. All our video solutions are powered by the Secure Reliable Transport protocol (SRT). With secure AES 128/256-bit encrypted streams and simplified firewall traversal, SRT is capable of delivering the best quality video over the worst networks. For broadcasters with stringent firewall policies in place but who also want to continue working with people at home including freelancers and production partners, Haivision SRT Gateway provides an easy way to route live streams from one location to another, including to and from firewalls.
