THE MOST POWERFUL TRANSCODER FOR MISSION-CRITICAL VIDEO
With Kraken, send the highest quality video and ensure streams meet your target network capacity. Kraken preserves and aggregates MISB and STANAG-compliant KLV metadata, while filtering out unnecessary fields to make the most of available bandwidth. Kraken provides the lowest latency, highest quality real-time video stream transmission while assuring compatibility with downstream processing, exploitation, dissemination systems.
Low Latency Transcoding
Transcode streams in real-time for enhanced situational awareness for decision makers
Control ISR video bandwidth consumption to get the most from your existing network links
KLV Metadata Filtering
When bandwidth is at a premium, selectively filter and decimate KLV metadata to prioritize video
Convert streams between video codecs to ensure interoperability with downstream systems
Adapt to any type of deployment with options including servers, portable appliances, virtual machines, and cloud
MISB & STANAG Compliance
Preserve interoperability by adhering to defense and ISR standards
DELIVER REAL-TIME ACTIONABLE INTELLIGENCE AT THE BEST QUALITY POSSIBLE
Reliably deliver vital video and metadata at low latency and enable quick decisions by responding in real-time to mission-critical information.
- HEVC (H.265), AVC (H.264), MPEG-4 Part 2, and MPEG-2 codec support
- SRT, UDP, RTSP and RTMP transmuxing capabilities
- SDI, Composite video, and GigE Vision input support
