Envivio is also introducing version 2.4 firmware for the 4Caster C4 family. The new firmware brings numerous enhancements including support for the new Envivio Genesis™ output format—a single intermediate mezzanine format that supports multiple bit rates and resolutions to drive TV without boundaries for live and on demand services for every consumer device across multiple networks.
4Caster C4 Gen III highlights:
- The only system in the industry that can deliver traditional broadcast television services and TV to other platforms from a single platform and a single headend.
- The first encoding system capable of ingesting sources and delivering up to 15 outputs per channel to meet the needs of traditional broadcast and IPTV ecosystems, as well as emerging Internet TV applications.
- Greater operational efficiency and simplified headend management by reducing the number of encoders systems needed.
- Increased encoder density reduces space, power and cooling requirements within the headend.
- The latest generation Intel® Xeon® Processor 5600 Series integrates Envivio’s patented multi-core compression engine for optimal encoding efficiency.
- Upgradeable by firmware to provide support for future formats including 1080p 3D MVC output for the highest quality 3D viewing experience.
The new version 2.4 firmware for Envivio 4Caster C4, C4(2) and Gen III systems features:
- Support for the new Envivio Genesis mezzanine format.
- World’s first solution to simultaneously support both IPTV and OTT outputs compatible with Microsoft Mediaroom 2.0, Silverlight and PlayReady environments.
- Enhanced interoperability for cable MSO networks.
- Increased input redundancy to maximize availability and reduce operational expenditures.
- Fine control over adaptive stream output to enhance quality of experience.
