Envivio Puts Halo™ Over Full Apple Product Line

Envivio's Newest Halo™ Video Solution Supports Full Line of Apple Devices, Including Apple TV, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iPad Mini 3, and the iPad Air 2

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - October 21, 2014) - Continually innovating its video product line to support the newest consumer devices, Envivio (NASDAQ: ENVI) today announced the availability of version 4.0 of its Halo network media processor (NMP) video solution product, which supports all Apple devices, such as Apple TV, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and the just announced iPad Mini 3, and iPad Air 2.

"Our mission is to support the launch of new products faster and better than anyone else, and to add functionalities contributing to a superb user experience," said Envivio's VP-Products and Solutions Boris Felts.

Felts added, "For video service providers, video delivery is about efficiently providing the best user experience to any and all consumer devices as soon as they are available on the market. Envivio differentiates by offering video solutions that support all video streaming formats and all Digital Right Management (DRM) systems, and works closely with device manufacturers."

Specific Enhancements in Halo Version 4.0

With Halo version 4.0, Envivio now supports all of the latest multi-screen video streaming formats, such as Adobe HDS, Apple HLS, MPEG-DASH, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, with H.264 and HEVC video support, and new content protection schemes.

Processing performances have also improved by 40 percent to diminish the hardware footprint inside the network. "This alone was the number one reason the second largest U.S. cable operator selected Envivio," Felts added. Today, Halo is the most efficient combined packager origin server available in the market.

Furthermore, Halo version 4.0 improves the TV Anytime workflows by performing video encryption for video protection and interfacing with all of the complex CDNs and DRM systems, including Microsoft PlayReady, Adobe Access, and Google Widevine, making it simple for operators to support new consumer devices as they are introduced to the marketplace, as it does for BSkyB, Comcast, and Telstra.
