Envivio Muse™ Encoders Used for New LG u+tv G Service to Set-Top Boxes and Existing LG U+ Multi-Screen Service
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Envivio (Nasdaq:ENVI), a leading provider of live and on-demand multi-screen IP video processing and delivery solutions, today announced that LG Uplus has deployed Envivio encoding solutions to power its new LG u+tv G multi-screen service, the first service offering in South Korea to support Google TV. LG u+tv G offers subscribers access to live channels and on-demand TV integrated with apps including Search, YouTube, Google Play and Chrome, via an Internet-connected set-top box.
LG U+ uses Envivio encoders to power its TV Everywhere service, providing more than 126 channels of video to TVs, PCs, tablets and smartphones. LG U+ is a telecommunications service provider in Korea and a subsidiary of LG Group.
“We are excited to be able to offer the LG u+tv G service to our subscribers as another way to experience television in an interactive fashion,” said Hyunil Moon, general manager of the IPTV business team at LG U+. “The Envivio encoders were selected because they provided the best video quality at any given bitrate, on any device. This decision was reinforced by the fact that our previous implementation of multi-screen with the Envivio systems has proven to be an extremely reliable, robust architecture.”
“LG U+ is an innovative operator, and the introduction of this new Google TV service takes their video service to the next level,” said Julien Signès, Envivio’s president and CEO. “At Envivio, we are committed to providing solutions that offer the flexibility and scalability our customers need, with the feature set to support traditional TV and advanced applications on any viewing device.”
