Haivision, a market leader in enterprise video and streaming solutions, today announced the appointment of industry veteran John Leipper to drive their defense market strategy, reinforcing their leadership in the ISR market, specifically focused on full motion video (FMV) and Motion Imagery applications supporting advanced KLV metadata workflows.
Deployed by defense organizations worldwide, Haivision’s rugged, compliant and low-latency video solutions for ISR deliver standards-based and interoperable FMV from any sensor to any operator, analyst or decision maker, on any device. Building on a 10 year legacy of support for ISR workflows, Haivision continues to support both legacy networks and innovate with HEVC and mobile video delivery (OTM) requirements.
John Leipper joins the company as the director of product strategy, defense, bringing more than 12 years of systems engineering experience in geospatial motion imagery workflows from airborne vehicles. Prior to Haivision, Leipper served as a project engineer for General Atomics Aeronautical Systems and guided early standards development for marrying geospatial metadata with video which has been adopted by MISB and STANAG standards bodies. He also aided integration of metadata-enabled video into the General Atomics fleet of vehicles (Predator, Reaper, and Sky Warrior). Leipper continued his career with 2d3 Sensing and Insitu Inc. (a Boeing company) to further support remote sensing workflows to maximize intelligence extracted from imagery enhanced with geospatial data in commercial drone use cases.
At Haivision, Leipper will drive the continued development of solutions that support end-to-end ISR workflows and use-cases, focussing on low latency performance, metadata handling, compliance to standards, and interoperability with ecosystem partners. Specific workflows include advanced video encoding within ISR platforms, the backhaul of FMV across LOS, BLOS, and private networks, and the distribution of in-context video for situational awareness (SA), processing, exploitation & dissemination (PED), and common operation picture (COP) applications in command and control facilities.
From September 12-15, Haivision will exhibit its FMV solutions at stand N4-142 at DSEI 2017 (London, UK), the world’s largest fully integrated international…
