Portugal Telecom (PT) will use Envivio's Three Screens delivery platform to support the commercial rollout of a broadband service for PCs.

The service, called MEO@PC, relies on Envivio's 4Caster C4 encoders configured to deliver content via Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Smooth Streaming and Silverlight, protected with PlayReady DRM, the vendor said. Microsoft and Envivio developed a dedicated interface between their respective systems.

After an initial trial period, PT plans to offer subscribers a channel lineup and interactivity that mirrors its MEO@TV service.

The Envivio encoders directly ingest the same sources as Portugal Telecom's IPTV service, enabling the MEO@PC service to mirror PT's IPTV channel lineup without requiring additional interfaces.

PT is using Envivio equipment to deliver mobile video.
