Envivio introduced its 4Stream IP gateway for IPTV and mobile TV service providers. The 4Stream IP Gateway is another element of Envivio’s all-IP Convergence Generation video headend announced in March.
The headend also features the 4Caster C4 IP video encoders and 4Caster M2 Mobile TV encoders, as well as the 4Manager network management and redundancy system.
The 4Stream IP gateway is a dual receiver and demodulator which feeds IP video networks with video services coming from satellite, cable, terrestrial networks. Each one rack-unit gateway receives encrypted MPEG-2 streams and can process two full transponders, replacing up to 24 professional decoders, Envivio said.
The IP outputs are received by Envivio C4 and/or M2 encoders. The Envivio 4Manager manages and monitors the gateway as well as other components in the system via a comprehensive Web browser.
