N-Type taps Envivio to Overhaul CHT Headend, Upgrading the 3GPP
Service and Adding New Support for High Quality Adaptive Streaming for
iPhone Customers in Taiwan
South San Francisco, CA ? June 15, 2010 ? Envivio today announced that
N-Type, a leading systems integrator in Taiwan, is deploying a multi-
channel Envivio Mobile TV Headend that will enhance the capabilities
of Taiwan’s largest telecommunications company, Chunghwa Telecom
(CHT). The all-IP Envivio Mobile TV head-end featuring the 4Caster? C4
Three Screens encoder/transcoder replaces CHT’s existing software-
based infrastructure, enabling CHT to support today’s most exciting
Android smartphones and the Apple iPhone. The headend will deliver
both 3GPP and HTTP live streaming services. CHT presently serves over
9.4 million mobile subscribers, with more than half of those (4.9
million) receiving 3G services.

“The CHT team knows that when a subscriber chooses an advanced
smartphone, they expect to take full advantage of their device’s
vibrant screen and performance capabilities,” said Wilson Liu, General
Manager, N-type. “Envivio’s Mobile TV Headend will enable CHT to
deliver services that consistently provide an outstanding experience
that is tailored to today’s most desirable devices. We are also
streamlining CHT’s operations because Envivio multi-profile encoders
simultaneously prepare content for all devices and delivery methods.”

Envivio’s Mobile TV Headend uses the 4Caster C4 to encode content in
multiple profiles to enable full support for Apple’s HTTP live
streaming technology. This adaptive live streaming solution combined
with Envivio’s H.264 Extreme? codec ensures the continuous delivery of
video to iPhones, regardless of fluctuations in network bandwidth.
Envivio’s 4Caster C4 simultaneously streams the same content for 3G
devices, which can include iPhones and the latest generation Android
smartphones. Advanced features such as network-aware rate control and
video display aspect ratio management help to ensure the best quality
of experience for customers.

“The mobile device landscape is constantly changing,” said Envivio CEO
Julien Sign?s. “The Envivio Mobile TV Headend gives service providers
like CHT the flexibility and reliability needed so that they are fully
prepared to support the demands of their subscribers with the best
possible video experience, regardless of what new device or format may
come along. The expertise of our partner, N-Type, is invaluable in
helping CHT smoothly and quickly migrate its headend.”

The Envivio 4Caster C4 encoding platform provides video compression
for all Three Screens of consumer video ? TVs, PCs and mobile devices
? from a single platform. Designed to enable fixed line and mobile
network operators to deliver content simultaneously across the full
range of consumer devices, the 4Caster C4 is able to take multiple
channels of content and encode them simultaneously to deliver multiple
mobile TV profiles, multiple Internet TV profiles, or SD and HD IPTV
