[SatNews] Envivio (NASDAQ: ENVI) has announced new cloud-based video processing solutions and is integrating its core software, Envivio Muse(tm) encoders and Envivio Halo(tm) network media processors, into OpenStack cloud software, an open source project with more than 200 companies as contributors—Envivio is also partnering with 1 Mainstream to deliver a turnkey end-to-end cloud-based video service.
Envivio’s software has been fully virtualized and commercially deployed on a large scale at a leading cable operator in the United States, using VMWare’s virtualization and cloud infrastructure solutions. Envivio and 1 Mainstream have also already teamed to deliver a cloud video service for a Tier 1 operator in Europe who wanted to quickly deliver live OTT channels to the big screen.
Media and IT operations are now converging thanks to software-based video processing. Service providers can reduce their operational costs by unifying their infrastructure and managing video operations as another application in their cloud, alongside other applications such as email and web portals. Operators can virtualize, scale and upgrade video processing infrastructure as needed with Envivio, either in a private cloud environment or leveraging the public cloud to deliver their video services. They can benefit from the flexibility and elasticity of the cloud—without suffering any impact on critical broadcast requirements of video quality and density—using Envivio software fully virtualized in a real-time environment.
Envivio and 1 Mainstream are collaborating to offer a turnkey end-to-end any-screen video service in the cloud. This fully integrated video delivery service significantly reduces time-to-market and cost by employing a pay-as-you-grow model that allows content and service providers to scale the service with usage. The end-to-end services available include encoding, packaging, digital rights management (DRM), billing, ad mediation, content delivery network (CDN) and apps. Video delivery is currently available on high engagement platforms such as Apple TV, XBox, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, iOS/Android tablets, and Samsung Smart TVs.
The 1 Mainstream and Envivio service will be on display at the Envivio booth #SU6202 during NAB 2014. Envivio will also showcase dynamic video encoding and network provisioning in a fully virtualized OpenStack environment at NAB, demonstrating this new workflow approach for cloud software running in an IT data center. More than 300 content and service providers around the globe have selected Envivio to power their multi-screen and pay TV services. Visit www.envivio.com to learn more about TV without boundaries.
