Envivio, a provider of software-based live and on-demand delivery solutions, has revealed that Volia, a Ukraine pay-TV operator, has selected Envivio Muse transcoders for its new OTT Internet TV services. Volia’s transcoding solution runs on the 4Caster G4 platform, Envivio’s high performance computing appliance for broadcast and multi-screen video processing.
Envivio was selected by Volia to help the service provider address the requirements of existing customers viewing content on mobile devices, as well as to provide Volia services outside its footprint. The Volia Smart HD OTT video service—encompassing more than 130 channels—is available to more than 1.5 million households across its footprint of over 29 cities throughout Ukraine.
“We chose the Envivio Muse encoders to power the Volia Smart HD service because Envivio offered outstanding video quality and a flexible architecture based on software,” said Alexander Hnyduik, CTO of Volia. “This flexibility is important as we integrate our pay-TV and OTT platforms and serve a larger number of viewers around the country who want to enjoy a more personalised, anytime, anywhere TV experience.”
