SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. and LONDON, March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Envivio, a leading provider of live and on-demand multi-screen IP video processing and delivery solutions, announced today that it will offer extensive opportunities for attendees of IP&TV World Forum, March 22-24 in London to experience TV without Boundaries. Envivio's Stand 158 at the Olympia Exhibition Centre will feature information on the new 4Caster™ C4 Gen III multi-screen encoder, which delivers nearly twice the processing power and HD density of previous generation encoders, as well as the latest version of firmware for the 4Caster family. This new firmware features Envivio Genesis™—the new standards-based output format that transforms TV headends into efficient multi-screen delivery engines.
Eric Rosier, Envivio's vice president of business development, will join a panel of global experts from some of the world's leading media companies for an in-depth discussion entitled "Making Multi-Screen Work." This discussion will explore the requirements for delivering content to multiple screens, how to ensure seamless handover of content between screens, managing content rights and protection in a multi-screen world, and the impact of multiple devices on subscriber content consumption habits. The panel is scheduled for Wednesday March 23rd at 15:10 (local time).
"Tablets, smartphones, PCs, and connected TVs are radically changing viewing habits, but subscribers expect more than just content—they want high quality services that take full advantage of those devices," said Envivio president and CEO Julien Signes. "Envivio is helping its customers deliver high quality multi-screen solutions that respond to today's viewers' demands."
The 4Caster™ C4 Gen III live multi-screen encoder nearly doubles the processing power and is capable of supporting twice the HD channel density of its predecessor. 4Caster C4 Gen III is deployed in live trials at major operators in the U.S., Europe and Asia to meet the demand for live HD video services for Internet-connected tablets and TVs.
Version 2.4 firmware for the 4Caster C4 family brings numerous enhancements including support for the new Envivio Genesis™ output format—a single intermediate mezzanine format that supports multiple bit rates and resolutions for live and on demand services for every consumer device across multiple networks.
Envivio will bring similar demonstrations to venues around the world. Envivio will be at Stand 3401 in Hall 3 during CCBN 2011 at the China International Exhibition Center March 23-25. At Convergence India, Envivio will be on Stand A11 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi March 24-26. From April 11-14, Envivio will be at NAB 2011 on Booth SU4306 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
