Envivio has announced that Estonian telco Elion has expanded its DigiTV IPTV service using the Envivio 4Caster C4 Three Screens encoder for live HD channels.
The 4Caster C4 HD reduces the bit rate required for delivering the highest quality HD to below 6Mbps, and according to the IP video specialist, it will enable Elion’s service to travel further and to more points across its existing DSL network, extending its service to more potential subscribers without the need to expand network infrastructure. It will also gives Elion the capacity to carry more channels or to increase the quality of its existing channels. “DigiTV has proven to be an extremely popular service as part of our triple play package,” said Jaan Inno, technical development department manager at Elion. “Our subscribers have come to expect outstanding video quality and Envivio’s 4Caster C4 HD solution for IPTV ensures that Elion can grow as needed while ensuring that we maintain the very highest quality standards.”
