Envivio's Cloud DVR Solution at IBC
Envivio, a leading provider of software-based video processing, delivery, and monetization solutions, demonstrated at IBC a revolutionary Cloud DVR solution using its breakthrough software capability optimized to run on the HP Moonshot for Media Processing server, powered by Intel® Xeon® E3-1284 v4 processors.
This breakthrough solution has been designed for the multi-screen world, providing ultimate flexibility and cost-efficiency to video service providers which want to monetize services across all subscriber devices at a fraction of the usual cost. New functions include network time-shifting, Start-over TV, Catch-up TV, and network personal video recorders (nPVR), all in one virtual software solution.
Envivio’s Cloud DVR software solution combines next-generation processing techniques, from efficient software-defined storage with erasure coding, the use of the latest compression standards to transcoding, and packaging on the fly, resulting in storage reductions at each step. Furthermore, by leveraging the HP Moonshot scalable architecture and the accelerated video processing functions of Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v4 product family, the Cloud DVR solution offers a compelling cost/efficiency ratio for this type of service.
During this demonstration, Envivio Cloud DVR software was hosted on the HP Moonshot ProLiant m710p from HP’s lab in Houston. The content was viewed in Amsterdam in native resolution on TV, where visitors could compare that resolution to the different bitrates and formats streamed on tablets and smartphones at the booth.
