Globosat has yet another technology vendor helping it to broadcast World Cup games in 4K; this time it’s Envivio.
Envivio said it will enable Globosat to broadcast quarterfinal, semifinal, and final games at 60 frames per second (4Kp60).
Last May, Envivio’s had been involved in a live 4K broadcast of the 2014 French Open tennis tournament.
Globosat is using Envivio’s Muse Ultra HD, a live or file-based video encoding/transcoding solution. Muse Ultra HD can encode up to 4K video resolution in up to 60 fps. It can encode video in 8- or 10 bits, the company said.
Envivio Muse software is designed to support both live and on-demand 4K compression in HEVC format, the company said.
