Envivio delivers live, on demand HD video to the iPad

Envivio says its 4Caster C42 video encoding/transcoding platform now offers comprehensive support for the iPad, enabling delivery of live and on demand high definition (HD) TV services over Wi-Fi and 3G networks for the new device.

Available for both the 4Caster C4 and 4Caster C42, the enhancement further expands the flexibility of the industry's leading Three Screens video delivery platform, which already powers network operator and over the top TV services for the iPhone, including premium Pay TV, sports and movie content for operators in Europe, coverage of the Olympics and NHL hockey in Canada, and telecomm Mobile TV services worldwide, says Julien Signes, president and CEO of Envivio.

New iPad owners can experience the quality of the Envivio video delivery platform for themselves by visiting the Envivio web site (http://www.envivio.com) and signing up for a free demonstration of HD and SD live streams. Envivio will also utilize the iPad in its Mobile TV and On Demand demonstrations during NAB 2010 (Booth SU4302), April 12-15 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"The upgrade for the 4Caster C42 takes full advantage of the vivid 9.7-inch LED-backlit iPad display by delivering HD video that is perfectly formatted for the iPad at up to 720p resolution, according to Signes. The exclusive multi-profile output of the 4Caster C42 offers the capability to simultaneously service iPads and iPhones, as well as computers, smartphones and other devices, for unmatched service density, he adds.

4Caster C42 ingests up to eight IP, four analog or four SDI channel sources and simultaneously encodes and protects the content in multiple profiles using Envivio H264 Extreme Compression, regarded as the industry's highest quality video codec. This multi-profile encoding enables Apples' adaptive streaming functionality, ensuring the best continuous picture quality regardless of fluctuations in network bandwidth for an exceptional viewing experience, says Signes.

The iPad support upgrade is available through a simple firmware upgrade to customers with an Envivio Silver or Gold support plan using 4Caster C42 systems in Mobile TV or Internet TV configurations.
