South San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2011
Envivio, the leading provider of live and on-demand multi-screen IP video processing and delivery solutions, today announced record results for the six month period ending July 31, 2011, the first half of Envivio’s fiscal year 2012.
Revenue for the first half of fiscal 2012 nearly doubled compared to the same period last year, while gross margin continues to improve. With this revenue and margin growth, Envivio reached profitability during the second quarter of the current fiscal year.
Envivio’s growth was fueled by the accelerated demand for multi-screen television services from Tier-1 service providers worldwide. In particular, Envivio secured multiple projects with U.S.-based Tier-1 cable and telecom operators for multi-screen TV delivery. Envivio offers a flexible, software-based architecture for provisioning of high quality video content on any network and to any screen, including TVs and new devices, in contrast with legacy broadcast technology providers focused only on traditional broadcast services delivered to TV sets.
“We are very pleased with our results, reaching profitability during the second quarter of the current fiscal year, with significant expansion in both gross margin and market share. We believe our growth is a strong validation of Envivio’s strategy and our solutions that offer the best user experience on any device,” said Envivio CEO Julien Signès. “Video is now being consumed at an ever-growing pace on iPads, iPhones, Android phones, tablets, PCs, and other IP-connected devices. In this quickly evolving market, Envivio is uniquely positioned to enable traditional and emerging video service providers to successfully meet the challenge of delivering the best quality content to end users anytime, anywhere.”

- Added 38 new major telecom and cable customers for IPTV and multi-screen services, including Belgacom (Belgium), Broadcasting and Unicom New Media (China), and Stofa (Denmark)
- Expanded systems with 62 existing customers, representing over 50 percent of new orders for the first half of fiscal 2012, including leading operators in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.

- Strengthened the team with the addition of 15 key employees, including Matt Smith, vice president of Internet television, Scott Pranger, vice president of global channels and Sarah Lum, senior director of marketing communications
