Envivio Debuts G5 Family of Intel-Based Server Appliances

Since its commencement, Envivio is working on making the world’s video content universally enjoyable by all viewers, on any device, across any network, at any time. Its solutions deliver millions of content streams to hundreds of different styles of mobile devices, set-top boxes, and PC platforms on behalf of content owners, telecom operators, cable and satellite companies and mobile service providers, throughout the world.

The company has recently rolled out Envivio G5 family of Intel (News - Alert)-based server appliances, backed by latest generation Intel Xeon IvyBridge processors. This new platform promises to surge compression density, provisions the latest Ultra HD 4K resolution and HEVC (H.265) encoding, and brings down operating expenses considerably, for service providers.

"Envivio (News - Alert) software deployed on G5 is a powerful solution that supports everything from Ultra HD to mobile in a single system and offers dramatic cost savings for service providers," said Cyrille Berson, director of products for Envivio. "Our software-based video processing architecture provides the performance and reliability operators need, while also increasing flexibility and allowing for future upgrades."

The company has announced that their full suite of Envivio software such as Envivio Muse Live and Muse On-Demand encoders, Envivio Halo network media processors, Envivio Guru network management system and 4Balancer load balancer will now run on the upgradeable G5 appliances.

Two families of servers such as the new G5 1000 series (1RU) and G5 2000 series (2RU) will be available soon. The G5 2000 series comes with a flexible hot-swappable multi-node architecture, which offers greater scalability and ease of upgrades.

In addition, the company has worked on transitioning Envivio Muse and Halo to the Linux operating system to shorten software and network management operations in an IT-based environment.

The company is currently showcasing its complete range of Envivio solutions at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas.

Envivio is headquartered in South San Francisco, California and has offices worldwide including France, England, China, Singapore and Japan.
