CANAL+ Group Selects Envivio Encoders for Mobile Television Services Trial

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Envivio Inc., the leading technology provider of MPEG-4 (including AVC / H.264) systems which support broadcast services from mobile to HD, announced today that its 4Caster(TM) Mobile Series encoders have been selected by CANAL+ Group for its DVB-H trial of video services to handheld devices. CANAL+ Group is the French leader in Pay-TV and digital TV Broadcast and in the production and distribution of films. The optimized Envivio(R) encoders compress content to very low bit rates that are ideal for mobile operators wanting to enrich their services beyond voice to offer digital television and on-demand video, and for broadcasters such as CANAL+ wanting to repurpose content to address these new markets.

"We are continually offering new and enhanced services to our subscribers. We selected the Envivio encoders because of their unrivaled picture quality and ability to support a wide range of handheld devices," said Jean-Christophe Dekeyser-Donze, New Technologies Director at CANAL+ Group. "Since the Envivio encoders are fully compliant with key mobile standards, they have seamlessly integrated into our network and we plan to work together to enhance image quality."

The 4Caster Mobile Series of real time MPEG-4 encoders optimally distributes audio and video to mobile phone and mobile television subscribers. The encoding systems are compliant with international mobile delivery standards including 3GPP, DVB-H and ISDB-T.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
