Envivio, National Grid Wireless demonstrate WiMAX TV

Envivio and National Grid Wireless teamed up at IBC2007 last month in Amsterdam to demonstrate streamed TV alongside VoIP and data across a WiMAX network.

The network, which used a full headend with an Envivio Mobile TV encoder, was available throughout the RAI Congress Center, the venue of IBC2007.

Deploying the open systems-based solution can enable mobile WiMAX operators to reach the three screens of video — TVs, PCs and mobile phones. The solution supports a variety of revenue-generating business models by providing subscribers with anytime, anywhere connection capabilities.

Envivio offers encoders that range from mobile TV to HD that can be used on 3G, xDSL and WiMAX networks. Supporting a wide range of network protocols, resolutions, codecs, bit rates and devices, Envivio convergence solutions like the one featured with National Grid Wireless deliver high video quality at the lowest bit rates.
