Envivio's G5 Family of Appliances

Envivio's specialty is software-based video processing and delivery solutions. The company's latest innovation is the Envivio G5 family of Intel-based server appliances, featuring increased compression density, support for the latest Ultra HD 4K resolution and HEVC (H.265) encoding, and a lowering of operating expenses for service providers. Operators deploying Envivio Muse Live encoders on the new G5 platform can deliver up to 100 high-quality SD or 20 HD channels in a 2RU configuration. In a typical IPTV or cable scenario, this represents a significant cost savings. Rack space requirements can be reduced by nearly 40% and power consumption by more than 30% compared to the previous generation of Envivio appliances. Both 1RU and 2RU versions are available, with the latter featuring a modular hot-swappable, multi-node architecture.
