iLiveTV for iPhone OS 3.0
Envivio has announced iLiveTV, a professional-grade video compression system for evaluating, developing and launching Live and On Demand TV video services for the iPhone. The software provides support for the iPhone OS 3.0 video format and allows operators to offer iPhone users multiple channels of live broadcast TV over 3G and Wi-Fi networks. iLiveTV comes with the fully-upgradeable video encoding technology powered by the Envivio 4Caster C4, which is used to provide Internet TV and Mobile TV and supports almost any network and client device.
Features of iLiveTV offer Catch-up TV, Video On Demand, and a client channel guide, along with support for the capabilities of the iPhone OS 3.0 including the ability to adapt to available bandwidth, optimize full screen video playback, and increase battery life. The software also simultaneously encodes and protects the content for delivery at multiple bitrates using Envivio H.264 Extreme Compression.
iLiveTV will be demonstrated this week at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference by chief scientist Yuval Fisher, as well as demonstrated at CommunicAsia 2009 in Singapore, June 16-19 in the Hall 3 French Pavilion.
