[Via Satellite 07-08-2015] Envivio, a provider of software-based video processing and delivery solutions, supplied encoding support to Canal+ Group for its satellite and Over-The-Top (OTT) distribution trial of the UEFA Championship League soccer final.

The Champions League final features the top European football clubs and is traditionally viewed by more than 350 million European TV households. Canal+ Group leveraged different vendors for the transmission of this event and used Envivio Muse Ultra-HD, a video encoding/transcoding solution, for the final compression and satellite distribution in France.

Envivio Muse Ultra-HD can encode 4K video resolution at 60 Frames Per Second (FPS) with the new BT 2020 standard. The product supports High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) compression in 10 bits, Dolby AC-4 encoding and pass-thru. The Champions League final concluded on June 6, 2015.
