Slovenian telecom selects Envivio headend for IPTV offering
Envivio is providing a Convergence Generation video headend for TUŠ TELEKOM’s live standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) IPTV services in Slovenia.
TUŠ TELEKOM will expand its existing SD IPTV service to 108 channels, add six channels of HD content and migrate from MPEG-2 to an Envivio MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) encoding solution.
TUŠ TELEKOM will use the Envivio Convergence Generation solution featuring the 4Caster C4 multichannel video compression system and the 4Stream satellite-TV-to-IP gateway. The C4 encoder is built around a software compression architecture that allows operators to reconfigure service offerings, add product features and update encoding performance without having to change hardware. The Envivio 4Stream is an IP-based service gateway that allows MPEG-2 content downlinked from satellite to be delivered to the C4 compression system over a local IP network.
