SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Envivio (Nasdaq:ENVI), a leading provider of software-based multi-screen video processing and delivery solutions, today announced that the Envivio Muse™ software-based encoders have received a 2012 Cable Spotlight Product of the Year Award from Cable.TMCnet.com, a TMC sponsored cable technology website. Envivio Muse is a unique software-based encoding solution that supports the full range of video services—live and on-demand MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) broadcast TV, multi-screen video distribution, and the emerging HEVC (H.265) codec—while also providing the reliability required for 24x7 commercial operations.
Service providers running large-scale operations can use Muse to encompass live and offline video transcoding in their existing datacenter infrastructure for distribution to any device. Envivio's flexible software-based approach simplifies upgrades and makes license-based feature installations easy—operators can add support for new formats, features, profiles and devices as needed on existing hardware.
"Muse allows operators to create a private cloud encoding architecture, and turn their existing datacenter into a powerful video headend," said Julien Signès, Envivio's president and CEO. "Alternatively, operators choosing to deploy a more traditional headend architecture can implement a single, converged system that supports both traditional TV and multi-screen, as well as other advanced services.""It is my pleasure to recognize Envivio with a Cable Spotlight Product of the Year Award for its contribution to the advancement of cable technology solutions," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "I look forward to seeing more innovation from Envivio in the coming year." Envivio Muse Live or Muse On-Demand encoders can be installed on any qualified existing infrastructure, including HP BladeSystem or Cisco UCS servers, as well as the Intel-based Envivio 4Caster™ appliances. The Envivio 4Caster G4 2RU appliance is a high performance computing system designed to offer outstanding density, with support for up to 120 SD channels or 16 HD channels in MPEG-2 or AVC formats. More than 300 content and service providers around the globe have selected Envivio to power their multi-screen services. Visit www.envivio.com to learn more about TV without boundaries.
