Interoperability of Edgeware Web TV servers with Envivio SilverLiveTV and iLiveTV
to Enable Adaptive Streaming to Microsoft® Silverlight and Apple iPhone clients
Edgeware AB and Envivio® Inc. announced that the companies will work together to provide content providers and
operators with content delivery solutions for Internet and Mobile TV that take advantage of the
latest adaptive bitrate streaming technologies from Apple and Microsoft. The companies will
collaborate to ensure interoperability of Envivio’s iLiveTVâ„˘ and SilverLiveTVâ„˘ solutions with
Edgeware’s Web TV server products. Both companies are demonstrating adaptive streaming
technologies at IBC 2009.
Encoding for adaptive streaming is an important ingredient for the success of premium TV
and video delivery over the Internet, ensuring uninterrupted, quality viewing when networks
become congested. Efficient caching and delivery of popular content from servers positioned
close to the consumers minimizes congestion and enables a higher aggregate quality.
