SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., and NEW DELHI, March 24, 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 Convergence India 2011, March 24-26 in New Delhi, to experience TV without Boundaries. Envivio's Stand A11 at Pragati Maidan will feature information on the new 4Caster™ C4 Gen III multi-screen encoder, which delivers almost twice the processing power and HD density of previous generation encoders. Envivio will also highlight 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.
"As India moves rapidly toward wide deployment of HD streams, video content distributors need solutions that simplify the HD transition and enable them to make the most of exciting new opportunities brought on by mobile devices and tablets," said Envivio President and CEO Julien Signes. "Regardless of the screen, people want high quality services that provide an excellent user experience. Envivio is well-positioned to help its customers in India with systems and end-to-end multi-screen solutions that address today's needs such as HD."
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 delivering live and on demand services for every consumer device across multiple networks.
Other solutions that will be highlighted include:
- Envivio H.264 Extreme Compression ™ that allows operators to add HD channels, increase the quality of premium HD services, and deliver HD to multiple viewing platforms.
- Delivery of IPTV and Cable headends for TV and broadcast applications.
- Fully secured delivery of Over the Top (OTT) services with integrated encryption, DRM and a high quality of experience using the latest adaptive streaming technologies.
