South San Francisco (PRWEB) March 12, 2012
Envivio, a leading provider of live and on-demand multi-screen IP video processing and delivery solutions, today announced product support for the latest mobile devices and video technologies, including support for the new Apple® iPad® and Apple TV®, as well as a technology demonstration of the emerging MPEG-DASH adaptive bit-rate standard.
Envivio Muse™ transcoding software, available on the Envivio 4Caster™ appliance or HP blade servers for IT datacenter implementations, supports native 1080p HD resolution for the recently introduced Apple iPad and Apple TV. Two channels in full 1080p and up to six sub-resolutions in Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) can be delivered from a single appliance or blade.
As a result, viewers can enjoy a superior viewing experience on the iPad’s new ultra-high quality Retina display and pristine HDTV using their Apple TV system. Service providers and content providers with existing Envivio systems can easily upgrade their headends to support the new formats with a simple license upgrade, thanks to Envivio’s software-based architecture.
“Envivio has been at the forefront of developing products geared for multi-screen video delivery for more than a decade,” said Julien Signès, Envivio’s president and CEO. “We were the first to offer an encoder that supported Apple HTTP Live Streaming, and continue to enable our service provider customers to provide high quality video to the latest devices and integrate new technologies such as MPEG-DASH.”
Envivio is a member of the MPEG Standards Committee and MPEG-DASH Promoters Group, and will be presenting a technology demonstration of high quality MPEG-DASH adaptive bitrate technology at two industry events this month. Envivio is participating in the CableLabs Winter Conference, a showcase of advanced technologies for cable operators taking place in Philadelphia on March 12-13, as well as at the IP&TV World Forum in London, March 20-22. In these demonstrations, live video is encoded in an Envivio Genesis™ multi-bitrate transport stream using Envivio Muse, and packaged in MPEG-DASH format by the Envivio Halo™ network media processor. An Android tablet with an MPEG-DASH decoder client receives the adaptive bitrate streams, then decodes and displays the video.
Envivio now serves more than 310 customers in more than 50 countries.
