Envivio, a provider of software-based video processing and delivery solutions, has unveiled the Envivio G5 family of Intel-based server appliances. Leveraging the latest generation Intel Xeon IvyBridge processors, the new G5 platform increases compression density, supports the latest Ultra HD 4K resolution and HEVC (H.265) encoding, and lowers operating expenses for service providers.
Operators deploying Envivio Muse Live encoders on the new G5 platform can deliver up to 100 high quality SD or 20 HD channels in a 2RU configuration. In a typical IPTV or cable scenario, this represents a significant cost savings. Rack space requirements can be reduced by nearly 40 per cent and power consumption by more than 30 per cent compared to the previous generation of Envivio appliances.
“Envivio software deployed on G5 is a powerful solution that supports everything from Ultra HD to mobile in a single system and offers dramatic cost savings for service providers,” said Cyrille Berson, director of products for Envivio. “Our software-based video processing architecture provides the performance and reliability operators need, while also increasing flexibility and allowing for future upgrades.”
