The TASMAN was the premier product within HaiVision’s hai200 series of network video appliances. Based on HaiVision’s TRUE H.264 highly efficient compression technology the TASMAN achieves ground breaking video quality, with full resolution SD video supported at video bitrates from 500 kbps to 2 Mbps. The TASMAN is built on the same HaiVision platform that has proven incredibly reliable in the world’s leading telecom, distance education, and telepresence applications. With HaiVision’s commitment to performance, the TASMAN achieved best in class performance with sub 200 millisecond end to end latency.

HaiVision’s TASMAN DIGITAL was the ultimate network video appliance designed for performance, flexibility and value. H.264 video compression technology of the TASMAN DIGITAL delivers highly efficient video performance over a broad range of bit rates - from engaging high resolution, interactive “talking heads” at 700 kbps to crystal clear broadcast quality at 1.3Mbps to fluid, full motion video at SIF resolution and 256kbp — all at 30 frames per second with perfect audio sync. HaiVision’s TRUE H.264 video compression delivers DVD quality network video at more than a 60% reduction in bandwidth required by traditional MPEG-2 based systems.

The TASMAN DIGITAL is the ideal system for point to point communications, video backhaul, or video broadcast and streaming. The TASMAN DIGITAL achieves an industry leading sub-200 millisecond latency allowing integrators to deliver compelling communications systems or to address mission critical video delivery. The TASMAN DIGITAL supports industry standards, with proven inter-operability with standards based Set Top Boxes and Soft Players. Offering the most efficient quality to bandwidth compression available, the TASMAN DIGITAL delivers clear and consistent high resolution video rendering of every motion and nuance of the picture and clear, precise stereo audio.
