Envivio has announced iLiveTV
(http://www.envivio.com/solutions/ilivetv.php), a mobile video
encoding and distribution solution for evaluating, developing and
deploying Live and On Demand TV video services for the iPhone. It
takes advantage of the new iPhone OS 3.0 mobile video format.
According to Envivio CEO Julien Signes, iLiveTV delivers everything
mobile operators and content owners need to deliver TV to iPhone
users. It includes the Envivio 4Caster C4 world-class video encoding
platform, content delivery server software, a web-based Cover Flow
iPhone navigation portal, as well as integration and support from the
world’s most experienced team of mobile TV deployment experts.
iLiveTV enables operators to offer iPhone users multiple channels of
live broadcast TV over 3G and Wi-Fi networks with home theater
quality and premium features such as Catch-up TV, Video on Demand and
a client channel guide, Signes says. iLiveTV supports all of the
advanced capabilities of the new mobile video format in Apple’s
iPhone OS 3.0 to dynamically adapt to available bandwidth, optimize
full screen video playback and increase battery life.
iLiveTV is optimized for the native iPhone 3.0 video player and
requires no additional software be installed on the end user’s
iPhone. Video encoding is powered by the Envivio 4Caster C4 used
around the world to provide service to millions of IPTV, Internet TV
and Mobile TV subscribers. The 4Caster C4 is a fully upgradeable
system that can support almost any network and any client device.
The system ingests analog or digital sources and simultaneously
encodes and protects the content for delivery at multiple bitrates
using Envivio H.264 Extreme Compression.
Envivio Chief Scientist Yuval Fisher will be at this week’s Apple
Worldwide Developer Conference demonstrating the capabilities of
iLiveTV. In addition, Envivio will demonstrate iLiveTV at
CommunicAsia 2009 in Singapore, June 16-19, in the Hall 3 French
