Haivision EMS Brings Improved Stream Monitoring and Control with the New 1.2 Update
Since its introduction, Haivision EMS (Element Management System) has been helping system administrators centrally manage all of their Makito encoders and decoders no matter where they are located. Whether they are deployed at sports venues, broadcast studios or for ISR applications, Haivision EMS makes it easier to locate and manage Makito devices in real-time. The new 1.2 update for Haivision EMS adds features that are meant to improve workflow efficiency, simplify management, monitor device and stream status, and resolve operational issues.
Haivision EMS can discover any new Makito X, X4, and X1 device and pair it to the server, as well as give operators the benefit of tracking their status through a web browser-based graphical user interface (GUI), regardless of location. Once the Makitos are paired with Haivision EMS, system administrators can monitor devices in real-time, organize devices with custom labels, update firmware, apply licenses, and more. With this new update, Haivision EMS 1.2 adds more organizational and management tools to work in tandem with these existing features to create an end-to-end solution for monitoring remote devices and workflows.
In this post, we’ll be looking at some new key features that the 1.2 update brings and how they can help users better monitor and manage their Makito video encoders and decoders.
New EMS 1.2 Features and Benefits
Stream Monitoring and Control
One of the biggest new features added to EMS is the ability to monitor the individual live status (started, stopped, waiting) of video streams being encoded or decoded by each Makito. This enables system administrators to troubleshoot problems in real-time and even control Makito streams remotely, giving them the power to start and stop a live stream from a different location.
Device Data Export
Haivision EMS 1.2 also lets users export data about all paired devices including IP address, status, serial number, firmware version, and information from applied custom labels such as location, function, workflow type, and more. Data can be exported in a .CSV format for easy sharing and import into various inventory management software.
New User Interface
A refreshed user interface includes all the new features listed above and has been refined to be even more user friendly. The streamlined and flat EMS web-based interface can display, manage, and monitor all devices on a single screen.
With so many broadcast workflows and ISR applications reliant on IP networks, Haivision EMS has become essential to managing a fleet of Makito devices across different locations. With the 1.2 update of Haivision EMS, administrators can better monitor their devices from remote locations, fix any potential problems on the fly, and provide real-time data on their Makito devices and streams.
