M6 Group Selects Anevia for Multi-Site IPTV Head-End

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwire - Sept. 2, 2011) - Anevia, a leader in video streaming solutions and service infrastructure for live TV and video on demand (VOD), announced today, that M6 has selected its IP video products for building a multi-site IPTV head-end for channel monitoring, internal distribution, and rights management.

The M6 Group is the private owner of several popular French TV channels including the free M6, W9 channels, the pay-TV channels Paris Premiere, Téva, TF6, Série Club, and M6 Music, and the M6 Boutique La Chaîne shopping channel. The M6 Group chose Anevia to supply its headquarters, just outside of Paris in Neuilly sur Seine, with an IPTV head-end solution over a fiber optic network to replace a legacy coaxial and twisted pair based system.

Anevia built a solution for the M6 group based on its ViaLive DVB to IP gateway and Toucan video server for VOD and nPVR recording features. The Anevia IPTV head-end streams multiple live video channels across all the M6 offices and production studios to thousands of HD video monitors as well as through the M6 intranet.

"Our open video streaming technology is designed to support multiple devices and applications," said Vincent Meddour, Regional Sales Director at Anevia. "We are very pleased that M6 has chosen our solution as it's a perfect fit to their multi-site network environment."
