Envivio Delivers 'TV without Boundaries' for Windows Phone 7

Delivers High Quality of Experience and Enables Advanced Playback Features for Microsoft’s Latest Smartphone OS

South San Francisco, CA – October 13, 2010 – Envivio, the leading provider of live and on-demand multi-screen video processing solutions, announced today it has added support for the new Windows Phone 7 operating system to its multi-screen video head ends based on the 4Caster™ C4 family of encoder/transcoders. The enhancement will maximize video quality by using the industry’s highest quality H.264 compression—Envivio Extreme™ encoding—and provide support for the advanced playback and content protection features Telco operators and over the top service providers need to offer premium video services.

“The combination of the Envivio Three Screens video processing platform and Microsoft IIS Smooth Streaming has proven itself a winner for deployments around the world,” said Envivio vice president of marketing Boris Felts. “Providing support for Windows Phone 7 is a natural extension of the work we have already done with Microsoft and furthers Envivio’s commitment to enabling the best video services for the latest generation of smartphones.”

Envivio 4Caster C4 encoders use Envivio Extreme H.264 encoding to deliver content via Microsoft IIS Smooth Streaming to the IIS Smooth Streaming Client 1.1 installed on Windows 7 Phone devices. A dedicated interface between the 4Caster encoder and Microsoft PlayReady DRM Server, developed by Microsoft and Envivio, secures delivery of high-value VC-1 and H.264 encoded content while ensuring complete transparency for subscribers.

Envivio encoders process video at a variety of resolutions simultaneously to enable Live Smooth Streaming adaptive streaming, which ensures viewers receive uninterrupted video live play at the highest quality possible given variable network bandwidth and PC processing conditions. The solution enables advanced playback features including DVR controls for Live Smooth Streaming, multiple audio language support, offline playback support, and H.264/AAC support.

Windows Phone 7 support will be available as part of Envivio 4Caster C4 version 2.3 (live applications) and version 2.5 (offline, file-to-file applications) firmware upgrades announced by Envivio during the recent IBC 2010 in Amsterdam. The Envivio software is in the final stages of beta testing with partners worldwide and will be available for deployment in Q4 2010.
