Seans Media Builds India?s First H.264-Based Cable Service with
Envivio Video Head-End Compression Solution
Envivio?s Unique Technology Boosts Video Quality while Reducing
Bandwidth Overhead to Enable Addition of HD Channels and Expanded SD
South San Francisco, CA ? June 16, 2010 ? Envivio today announced that
Seans Media?a subsidiary of Aerolex Cablenet and a leading digital
cable TV service provider in Bangalore, India?has used an Envivio
video head-end to launch India?s first digital cable service featuring
high-efficiency H.264 video encoding. Compared to traditional MPEG-2,
the Envivio head-end reduces the amount of bandwidth Seans Media needs
to deliver each of its channels to subscribers, freeing capacity for
the service to expand its HD and SD channel lineup, while maintaining
the highest quality video to satisfy its discriminating customers.

?The Envivio head-end gives us a significant competitive advantage,?
said Pratap Wadhwa, managing director of Seans Media. ?Increasing the
number and variety of channels we offer is important for attracting
and retaining subscribers. The excellent video quality delivered by
Envivio?s compression system ensures that they love the way the
service looks.?

Seans Media is able to deliver each channel using as little as 1.6
Mbps without impacting video quality even for demanding content like
live sports channels thanks to the Envivio video head-end. The all IP
design of the Envivio system, along with the ability to directly
ingest baseband video, eliminates the need for costly, quality-
impacting interfaces. The solution also provides Seans Media with the
flexibility to adapt to future requirements. Envivio encoders support
all Three Screens of consumer video?TVs, PCs and mobile devices?from a
single platform with the ability 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 profiles.

?Seans Media has made an important investment in customer
satisfaction,? said Envivio President and CEO Julien Sign?s, ?ensuring
that they will deliver the variety of entertainment its customers want
while ensuring outstanding picture quality for both its SD and HD
channels. The Envivio head-end addresses their current goals while
providing a solid foundation for the introduction of exciting new
services in the future.?

Envivio head-end solutions provide cable operators with the
flexibility and capability they need to compete in an increasingly
diverse marketplace. Advanced compression liberates bandwidth,
enabling operators to increase the variety of HD and SD channels they
deliver over their existing network infrastructure. Envivio
Convergence head-ends are a solid foundation for expansion, providing
support for delivery of high quality video to mobile phone and
Internet-connected devices.
