Envivio announced that it is powering premium live HD sports channels on Apple TV for a European Tier 1 service provider.
The company did not identify its customer.
The content is being compressed using Envivio’s Muse Live encoders, protected using a new encryption mode by Envivio Halo network media processors (NMP), and delivered to Apple TVs.
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.
The Envivio Halo NMP is designed to provide a wide range of advanced video processing functions for any-screen services, including packaging, encryption and distribution. Halo also supports time-shifted TV applications such as multi-screen network PVR, Catch-up and Start-over TV with live-to-file capabilities, targeted ad insertion, and personalized content creation in the network.
Installed centrally or distributed in the network, Halo offers huge network capacity savings and increases the flexibility of multi-screen operations. Halo NMPs use existing broadcast infrastructure to efficiently deliver advanced, secure video services for the latest smartphones, tablets, connected TVs, game consoles and PCs.
