Cloudy future for Envivio’s video8 October 2014
It seems as if almost every company at IBC was talking about the Cloud – but only Envivio was talking about Nuage (which, of course, is French for ‘cloud’). And that’s how Envivio CEO Julien Signès likes it.
According to Signès, Envivio has deliberately set out to do something different.
Signès describes Nuage as the world’s most advanced fully virtualised cloud-based software-as-a-service (SAAS) video solution.
Nuage operates as a service on private, operator-owned networks, on the public cloud, or in hybrid environments, and is built on the cloud instantiation of the broad solution set of Envivio offerings for video processing, video delivery and video personalisation, including Envivio’s Muse, Halo and Guru software products for video processing, encryption, packaging, storage, distribution and network management.
“From large operators to small content owners, everyone wants to deliver their video assets to all consumers on any screen,” said Signès, “but the complexity of the fast-evolving ecosystem, the long and painful multi-vendor integration, makes launching those projects a lengthy and costly process that hinders industry progress.”
“This expansion of our portfolio allows us to offer the virtualised video solution in a service providers’ privately owned cloud, a public cloud, or a combination of both,” he continued. “This gives operators the flexibility they need to launch or scale multi-screen video services using the efficiencies and elasticity of the cloud, with fast time-to-market, seamless end-to-end integration, and employing a pay-as-you-grow OPEX model. With Nuage, we can enable the next Netflix or ESPN.com in 30 days or less.”
“We offer broadcast quality, including 4K, with 24/7 operated and monitored live, linear and on-demand video services from the cloud with the full panel of monetization features. No-one else does that,” Signès added.
