4Caster™ C4 and Halo™ NMP receive impressive ratings from cable industry judges in BTR Diamond Technology Reviews

Envivio, a leading provider of live and on-demand multi-screen IP video processing and delivery solutions, today announced that both its 4Caster C4 and Halo Network Media Processor (NMP) have been recognized by Broadband Technology Report’s 2011 Diamond Technology Review program as top solutions in the cable industry.

Envivio’s 4Caster C4 was awarded 4.5 Diamonds, as a unique and high quality encoding platform optimized for the growing variety of formats needed to support video delivery to any device at any time. The 4Caster C4 offers simultaneous video delivery from a single encoder to digital set-top boxes, connected TVs, PCs and Macs, as well as tablets and bandwidth restricted mobile screens.

“The 4Caster C4 Gen III allows for quality encoding that supports all technologies,” commented one of the Diamond Technology Review judges. “To have one device that can take several inputs and provide outputs with different bit rates suitable for a variety of devices allows for ease of delivery. This is the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of video encoding and streaming, simultaneously supporting a wide array of devices.”

The Envivio Halo NMP received 4.0 Diamonds, as the first solution of its kind that enables monetized services with encryption, packaging, formatting and distribution of video streams at the edge of the network, optimizing digital video processing for TV everywhere services.

"The Halo NMP should be a great product for those operators seeking a single-vendor solution to video encoding/transcoding, content distribution, and formatting for multiple screen types,“ said another Diamond Technology Review judge. “The NMP is a compact, high-capacity edge device and format converter, and together with the matching headend equipment, offers improved transport efficiency compared to the alternative of placing separate copies of every single format on the transport network. This system can be a key part of a TV-anywhere deployment strategy."

Envivio’s software-centric approach, leveraging industry-standard hardware, was built from the ground up for the multiscreen environment. As a result, with 4Caster C4 and Halo NMP, Envivio can deliver superior Quality of Experience (QoE), reduce costs of operations, improve time to service for the latest new devices, and support the broadest range of video formats.

“Envivio solutions enable operators to deliver video suited to growing requirements for anytime, anywhere viewing,” said Julien Signès, president and CEO of Envivio. “Envivio continues to receive numerous industry awards, in addition to embarking upon many new projects with customers, a clear validation of our technology leadership and a reflection of the quality of our products.”

Award entries were reviewed by an expert panel of judges from Bright House, Charter, Comcast, Cox, NCTC, Read Broadband Services, Suddenlink and Time Warner Cable, and then ranked on a scale from 1.0-5.0 Diamonds.
