Envivio Enhances Software-Based Product Lines
New Features and Video Quality Improvements to be Added for Headend and
Datacenter/Cloud Video Processing
LAS VEGAS, April 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NAB Booth #SU6202 – Envivio
(Nasdaq:ENVI), a leading provider of software-based live and on-demand
multi-screen video processing solutions, today announced several forthcoming
updates to its Envivio Muse™ encoding and Envivio Halo™ network media
processing software products. These new software licensing options have been
developed to improve quality, enable personalization of the user experience
and facilitate service monetization. Envivio products and solutions can be
deployed in the headend or IT datacenter for cloud-based video processing.
Encoding: Envivio Muse Live will be available on the Cisco UCS blade server
platform, as well as the HP BladeSystem and Envivio 4Caster™ G4 Intel-based
appliance. By combining the CPU strengths of these dense platforms with
additional software improvements, channel density is increased: Muse Live is
designed to support up to 120 SD channels in the 2RU 4Caster G4 platform and
up to 16 HD channels in MPEG-2 or AVC in the future.
Envivio Muse On-Demand will offer better control of video quality thanks to
integrated video quality monitoring. This integrated module computes the
impact of video compression on a frame-by-frame basis and provides a summary
chart, allowing the operator to fine tune compression parameters or
automatically reject content not meeting quality metrics.
The newest versions of Envivio Muse will support Dolby® Digital Plus™ in all
formats for live and on-demand applications, providing pristine surround sound
at lower bitrates on any screen.
Video processing: The Envivio Halo network media processor is being updated
with numerous improvements:
- Just-in-time packaging for non-linear workflows
- Support for Adobe® Primetime, the Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS)
format and Adobe Primetime DRM
- Ad insertion and blackout functionalities compatible with CableLabs ESAM
- Support for additional encryption modes, notably Microsoft PlayReady
Halo enables operators to further monetize multi-screen applications with its
dynamic ad insertion capabilities, and new personalization capabilities that
enhance the user experience. Halo will be available on the latest generation
Envivio 4Caster G4 platform or as software for IT datacenter environments.
Multiplexing & management: Envivio Spark™ is a universal gateway and
multiplexer that enables operators to deploy an end-to-end broadcast TV
headend for cable and satellite applications. Together with Muse encoders,
Halo network media processor and Envivio 4Manager™ network management system,
Spark offers a more complete solution for TV delivery across all networks.
"Our unique software-based product strategy enables operators to implement an
infrastructure that can easily be upgraded to support the newest advances and
technologies for video processing and delivery to any screen," said Boris
Felts, vice president of product marketing at Envivio. "These latest
enhancements to our software portfolio offer a range of new capabilities and
improvements for TV without boundaries."
The full range of Envivio software-based video processing solutions will be
displayed at Envivio booth #SU6202 at NAB 2013, April 8-11 in Las Vegas.
