France’s Bouygues Telecom has selected Envivio Muse VOD encoding software for its multiscreen services.

Commenting on the development, Thibaut Keraval, Bouygues Telecom‘s IPTV/OTT head-end representative, said: “Thanks to Envivio, we were able to upgrade our network infrastructure to support the latest TV Everywhere on-demand, multiscreen video services without replacing our existing infrastructure, including our virtualised VMWare software and Blade servers, saving us CAPEX, OPEX and a lot of headaches”.

Envivio VP products and solutions Boris Felts added: “We designed Envivio Muse to enable operators to build advanced media services into their networks, provide exceptional control processing and significantly reduce operational costs.

“Muse is optimized to run in virtual environments. As a result, it provides great flexibility and elasticity, while also ensuring a robust, reliable and high-quality video service. Unlike with native hardware solutions, our software approach remains unaffected by operating in a virtual environment”.

Separately, Envivio is also supplying a converged video delivery solution to Radiant Digitek Network Ovt Ltd, a major cable MSO in Rajastan, India.
