Envivio, a prominent supplier of live and on-demand multi-screen IP video processing and delivery solutions, announced that Envivio encoding solutions have been deployed by LG U+ to power its new LG u+tv G multi-screen service. This service is the first offering in South Korea boasting support for Google TV. LG u+tv G uses an Internet-connected set-top box to give subscribers access to live channels and on-demand TV integrated with apps, including Search, YouTube, Google Play, and Chrome.
LG U+ is currently using Envivio encoders to run its TV Everywhere service, providing over 126 channels of video to TVs, PCs, tablets, and smartphones. LG U+ is a subsidiary of LG Group and a major telecommunications service provider in Korea.
“We are excited to be able to offer the LG u+tv G service to our subscribers as another way to experience television in an interactive fashion,” said Hyunil Moon, general manager of the IPTV business team at LG U+. “The Envivio encoders were selected because they provided the best video quality at any given bitrate, on any device. This decision was reinforced by the fact that our previous implementation of multi-screen with the Envivio systems has proven to be an extremely reliable, robust architecture.”
“LG U+ is an innovative operator, and the introduction of this new Google TV service takes their video service to the next level,” said Julien Signès, Envivio’s president and CEO. “At Envivio, we are committed to providing solutions that offer the flexibility and scalability our customers need, with the feature set to support traditional TV and advanced applications on any viewing device.”
Envivio Muse™ Live and On-Demand software encoders/transcoders provide high quality video to any device on any network in all formats. Envivio Muse can be upgraded with minimal effort due to its converged architecture and feature-rich, software based design. The system runs on the Envivio 4Caster™ Intel-based appliances or HP blade servers.
