Envivio, a provider of live and on-demand multi-screen IP video processing and delivery solutions, has announced a new deployment with China Beijing TV Station (BTV).  BTV has selected Envivio 4Caster C4 Gen III encoders to power its IPTV and OTT services to Internet and mobile devices. BTV currently offers 12 SD channels and three HD broadcast TV channels with plans to launch Internet TV and mobile TV services shortly.

Envivio offers a powerful encoding/transcoding solution developed specifically for delivery to any screen. The 1-RU 4Caster appliance performs a variety of functions, including: multi-profile encoding, transcoding, packaging, encryption and publishing within a single system that delivers broadcast-quality TV, HTTP streaming and 3GPP mobile video. Envivio’s software-based encoding architecture, Envivio Muse, allows BTV to easily add support for new devices and formats as they expand their services.
