Seans Media selects Envivio video head-end compression for cable service

MUMBAI: Seans Media, an Aerolex Cablenet subsidiary and a digital cable TV service provider in Bangalore, has used Envivio‘s video head-end.

Compared to traditional MPEG-2, the Envivio head-end reduces the amount of bandwidth Seans Media needs to deliver each of its channels to subscribers, freeing capacity for the service to expand its HD and SD channel lineup.

“The Envivio head-end gives us a significant competitive advantage,” said Seans Media MD Pratap Wadhwa. “Increasing the number and variety of channels we offer is important for attracting and retaining subscribers.”
With the latest advancement, Seans Media is able to deliver each channel using as little as 1.6 Mbps without impacting video quality even for demanding content like live sports channels.

The all IP design of the Envivio system, along with the ability to directly ingest baseband video, eliminates the need for costly, quality-impacting interfaces.

The solution also provides Seans Media with the flexibility to adapt to future requirements. Envivio encoders support all three screens of consumer video—TVs, PCs and mobile devices—from a single platform with the ability to take multiple channels of content and encode them simultaneously to deliver multiple mobile TV profiles, multiple Internet TV profiles, or SD and HD IPTV profiles. 
“Seans Media has made an important investment in customer satisfaction, ensuring that they will deliver the variety of entertainment its customers want while ensuring outstanding picture quality for both its SD and HD channels. The Envivio head-end addresses their current goals while providing a solid foundation for the introduction of exciting new services in the future,” said Envivio president and CEO Julien Sign?s.

Envivio head-end solutions provide cable operators with the flexibility and capability they need to compete in an increasingly diverse marketplace. Advanced compression liberates bandwidth, enabling operators to increase the variety of HD and SD channels they deliver over their existing network infrastructure.
