Montreal, Canada, October 3, 2005 – HaiVision Systems Inc., a global leader in high performance video communication over IP solutions, has been selected by the Development Authority of the North Country for the 33 sites of their next generation distance education video network in northern New York State. HaiVision’s hai500 series multi-stream encoding and decoding system has been selected for its proven ability to deliver high resolution video and super wide band audio over educational networks and its field proven reliability and long term performance. Furthermore, considering the multi-camera, multi-screen configuration of most of the classrooms supported by the Development Authority of the North Country, the hai500 is the most cost effective and easy to deploy solution due to its frame and blade design and the inherent ability to handling up to 5 outgoing and 5 incoming streams within a single network element.

The reliability of the product is unparalleled.” HaiVision products have been deployed extensively in secondary, post secondary, and university level institutions throughout New York State.

“HaiVision is proud to be associated with this important deployment, bringing together critical teaching resources and students that are not in the immediate vicinity.
