Elion Adds New HD Live Choices to DigiTV Service with Envivio 4Caster C4 HD Encoding

LONDON — Envivio, Inc. today announced that Elion, the largest telecommunications provider in Estonia, has expanded its DigiTV IPTV service using the Envivio 4Caster™ C4 Three Screens encoder for live HD channels. The high efficiency and video quality provided by the 4Caster C4 HD chosen by Elion gives the company the flexibility it needs to grow its popular IPTV service. Envivio will showcase its portfolio of solutions for Mobile, IPTV and Internet service delivery at IPTV World Forum 2010 (Stand 158) in London from March 23-25.

4Caster C4 HD from Envivio significantly enhances video quality over previous generation encoders while dramatically reducing the bit rate required for delivering the highest quality HD to below 6Mbps. It enables Elion’s service to travel further and to more points across its existing DSL network, extending its service to more potential subscribers without the need to expand network infrastructure. That same efficiency also gives Elion the capacity to carry more channels or to increase the quality of its existing channels without increasing its bandwidth overhead.

“DigiTV has proven to be an extremely popular service as part of our triple play package,” said Jaan Inno, technical development department manager at Elion. “Our subscribers have come to expect outstanding video quality and Envivio’s 4Caster C4 HD solution for IPTV ensures that Elion can grow as needed while ensuring that we maintain the very highest quality standards.”

Sales and installation services for the systems were provided by Envivio partner Scansatel, one of the leading service providers in Finland and the Baltic region in the field of broadband and IP technology.
