Haivision today announced that major League Baseball's Miami Marlins are using Haivision's Makito HD video encoders to stream live video of the games to fans throughout Marlins Park on more than 700 flat-panel screens and digital signage displays in private suites, concourses, clubs and retail shops.
Working with Daktronics, a provider of display technology and media control systems for stadiums and venues, the Marlins have deployed Haivision's Makito encoders to bring real-time video of the game into the park's large-screen and IPTV system. For Daktronics and the Marlins, HD over IP yields significant flexibility in system design and media control. For Miami Marlins fans, the integrated system gives them the confidence to leave their seats, explore the ballpark and visit concessions and retail areas, without missing any key moments of the game.
With extremely low latency, H.264 video compression and 1080p60 video quality, Haivision's Makito HD encoders are designed for IPTV and HD digital signage, providing real-time live action with imperceptible delay, the company said. The Marlins can now show the game from different angles on the field, display video from other games in progress, and include any other type of dynamic audio and video content to entertain the crowd.
"The digital display technology, featuring the Haivision Makito HD encoders at the center, is a huge part of the game day presentation," said Claude Delorme, EVP of operations and events for the Miami Marlins. "We relied on Daktronic's expertise in choosing the right products and solutions to create our display and video system, and we were not disappointed. The Makito's low latency features and superior audio and video content delivery were key in making them the perfect encoding choice for us. Marlins Park is now capable of delivering video over IP, successfully creating the ultimate experience for our fans."
