Envivio, a provider of software-based video processing and delivery solutions, has announced that ZON Multimedia, Portugal’s leading pay-TV operator, has selected Envivio software-based headend solutions to power a set of DVB-S and DVB-C transport streams to provide pay-TV services, as well as mobile TV services delivered to any screen.
ZON serves more than 1.5 million subscribers in Portugal, and recently announced a merger with Optimus Portugal, another Envivio customer.
The Envivio solutions were provided through its official Portuguese representative, Satcab, a system operator and distributor of professional broadband and broadcast equipment in Portugal that has been supplying products and solutions to all the major local TV operators and content providers for the last 16 years.
Envivio Muse encoders on the Envivio 4Caster G4 Intel-based appliance, with Envivio Spark receivers and multiplexers, deliver high quality video in variable bitrate (VBR) format for cable and satellite broadcast TV channels. Simultaneously, the Muse encoders are producing constant bitrate (CBR) video for non-linear TV service delivery, as well as adaptive bit-rate (ABR) services for multi-screen. The headend infrastructure is managed and controlled using Envivio’s network management system.
