Envivio, a provider of software-based video processing and delivery solutions, today announced that it is powering premium live HD sports channels on Apple TV for a European Tier 1 service provider.
The premium channels are compressed using Envivio Muse Live encoders, protected using a new encryption mode by Envivio Halo network media processors (NMP) and delivered to Apple TV. Envivio showcased the live service at the recent TV Connect exhibition in London.
Halo is designed to support live or on-demand adaptive bitrate TV for the full range of Apple devices, using the latest content protection technologies. This capability is critical for video operators desiring to securely deliver high quality premium content to Internet-connected devices.
“We are the leaders in adaptive bitrate compression and video processing innovations for Internet and over-the-top TV, and continue to enhance our solutions by providing support for a broad range of devices and formats, including Apple TV and the related content protection technologies,” says Julien Signès, Envivio’s president and CEO.
