Anevia Enables HbbTV Startover Service for Cognacq-Jay Image

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2012) - Anevia, a leader in video streaming solutions and service infrastructure for live TV and video on demand (VOD), today announced that it has deployed an HbbTV time-shifting service for Cognacq-Jay Image.

ViaMotion is Anevia's software based solution for streaming live and on-demand video to connected TVs and other viewing devices. Cognacq-Jay Image is the leader for outsourced managed video services in France.

The Anevia ViaMotion server pulls multi-bitrate streams from DTV channels and repackages them into HLS and MPEG-DASH HTTP video streaming formats. With URL information included in the DTV broadcasts, viewers with connected TVs can easily access HbbTV based time-shifting features. These include Startover TV for catching up on the start of live television programs.

Anevia ViaMotion has enabled Cognacq-Jay Image to contribute to the launch and the management of the France Télévisions Salto HbbTV service, together with the whole TDF group.

"Cognacq-Jay Image's HbbTV service represents the future of television," said Amaury Simon, Business Development Director at Anevia. "The growing base of connected TV owners are now able to benefit from advanced HbbTV services thanks to their deployment of Anevia's ViaMotion streaming technology."
