Envivio To Provide Headend For Tus Telekom IPTV Services
[12-18-07 – Satellite Today] Envivio Inc. will provide a video headend for Tus Telekom‘s standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) IPTV services in Slovenia, Envivio announced Dec. 18.
Tus Telecom will use the Convergence Generation headend to expand its existing SD IPTV to 108 channels, add six channels of HD content and migrate from MPEG-2 to an MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) encoding solution.
“While Envivio was one of several vendors that showed us high quality video encoding products, the software based compression architecture of their C4 offered a unique level of flexibility,” Andras Pali, CTO of Tus Telecom, said in a statement. “It was the only encoder we saw that included significant video compression enhancements on the product development roadmap, enhancements that would allow us to improve the encoding performance in the future without requiring expensive and disruptive hardware changes.”
Financial details of the deal were not released.
