Envivio 4Caster C4 provides video compression for three screens
Envivio recently announced that its 4Caster C4 convergence encoding system is able to provide video compression for the “three screens” of consumer video — TVs, PCs and mobile devices — on a single platform.
Designed to enable fixed line and mobile network operators to deliver content simultaneously across the full range of consumer devices, the C4 platform is able to take multiple channels of content and encode them simultaneously to deliver multiple mobile TV profiles, multiple Internet TV profiles or SD and HD IPTV profiles. The new releases of the 4Caster C4 adds support for HD encoding as well as 3GPP and 3GPP2 mobile streaming profiles for unicast mobile TV. In addition, the 4Caster C4 hardware platform features an embedded software encoding core that enables customers to alter the compression capabilities of the encoder as needed with a software license key.
