Envivio launches 4Caster G4 encoding appliance

September 6, 2012

Envivio, a provider of live and on-demand multi-screen IP video processing and delivery solutions, has introduced the Envivio 4Caster G4 encoding appliance for the Envivio Muse software-based encoder family. 4Caster G4 is a high performance computing (HPC) system that offers 6x density compared to the current platform—up to 72 SD or 12 HD channels per 2RU chassis, with the potential for further future density improvements. A flexible multi-node configuration and robust, power-efficient design reduce CAPEX and OPEX for operators.

“Envivio 4Caster G4 is the most powerful encoding platform that we have ever offered. With this high performance system, we are providing a broader range of interfaces, the largest number of output formats and the option of high quality or high density configurations,” said Julien Signès, president and CEO of Envivio. “The combination of this new platform with the flexibility and best-in-class video quality of Muse software-based encoding supports the most demanding broadcast TV services, dense headends and multi-screen distribution, all at the same time.”
