LAS VEGAS -- Envivio Inc., the leading technology provider of IP video convergence solutions from mobile to HD, today introduced its 4Stream™ IP gateway for IPTV and mobile TV service providers. The 4Stream IP Gateway is an integral part of the Envivio all-IP Convergence Generation™ video headend. Announced in March of 2007, the headend also features the 4Caster™ C4 IP video encoders and the award-winning 4Caster M2 Mobile TV encoders both with IP input, as well as the 4Manager™ network management and redundancy system. Supporting an all IP infrastructure, the headend solution provides a multi-service platform capable of addressing the key devices targeted by service providers who control both fixed and wireless networks. The complete solution offers flexible routing, simplified management and redundancy, requires less space and is easier to manage and deploy than today’s traditional IPTV and mobile TV headends.

The 4Stream IP gateway is a dual receiver and demodulator which feeds IP video networks with video services coming from satellite, cable, terrestrial networks. Each one rack unit (1RU) gateway receives encrypted MPEG-2 streams and can process 2 full transponders, replacing up to 24 professional decoders. The IP outputs are received by Envivio C4 and/or M2 encoders. The Envivio 4Manager manages and monitors the gateway as well as other components in the system via a comprehensive web browser. The new IP gateway will be on display in the Envivio booth #12105 at NAB2007.

"The Convergence Generation headend with the new 4Stream IP gateway provides a full end-to-end IP architecture from video reception to subscribers’ TVs or mobile devices," said Julien Signès, President and CEO of Envivio Inc. "The IP headend architecture is a fundamental milestone for the video compression industry as it meets the challenges posed by network convergence towards IP and the demand by merged fixed line and mobile carriers for multiservice platforms."
