SINGAPORE, June 19 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ –
Envivio Inc., the leading technology provider of IP video convergence
solutions from mobile to HD, today announced its 4Caster M2 encoders were
selected by Dream Satellite TV, a brand of Philippine Multimedia Systems
Incorporated (PMSI), for the first commercial deployment of DVB-H mobile TV
services in the Philippines. PMSI is currently on test broadcast with eight
live channels of 24 x 7 programming on select Samsung handsets. Delivering
the highest picture quality to the most handsets on the market, the flexible
M2 encoders also support multiple output profiles and industry leading
conditional access systems (CAS) to provide for scalable growth as Dream
launches and expands its mobile TV services.
"We are thoroughly impressed with the features of the Envivio AVC/H.264
encoders that offer multiple profiles thus allowing us flexibility in
deployment. Envivio is also committed to high quality standards, security,
and interoperability," said Cesar G. Reyes, CEO of PMSI. He added, "Our
primary goal is to pioneer innovative technology-based products to enhance
people’s lives. The Envivio encoders help us achieve this goal as we launch
our new mobile TV services."
In addition to their mobile TV trials, PMSI’s Dream is the first and only
provider of direct-to-home (DTH) television broadcasting services via
satellite in the Philippines. Testing their mobile TV signals since late last
year, PMSI has five transmission stations spread throughout metro Manila,
where the service will be initially launched commercially. PMSI intends to
eventually have nationwide coverage and unique program content via
partnerships with content providers, especially Associated Broadcasting
Company (ABC5). After a competitive shoot-out evaluating the features and
quality of encoding systems, PMSI selected Envivio 4Caster M2 mobile encoders
for this high profile project.
PMSI also plans to use both ISMACryp and SimulCrypt to secure content and
provide subscriber access to its new mobile TV services. The M2′s ability to
support both of these protocols was a key requirement. In the future, PMSI
plans to offer pay-per-view channels in which these protocols will play a
critical role in protecting revenues.
PMSI is the first and only duly-licensed Satellite Pay-TV operator using
Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) technology in the Philippines. It’s
currently offering 52 digital TV channels covering the entire country. As
such, Mobile TV will be an extension of its existing commercial operations
which began in 2001.
PMSI has partnered with Associated Broadcasting Company (ABC5) amongst
others to bring its service to Digital Video Broadcasting – Handheld (DVB-H)
compatible terminals. ABC5 is a leading free-to-air broadcaster with
frequencies in over 40 major cities. ABC 5 envisions being a leading
provider of content for DVB-H.
