BBC Uses Envivio Encoders in Production of Beijing Games

BBC used Envivio video encoders to deliver live video feeds of the Beijing
Olympic Games to its production staff in the
UK. The encoders were selected for
their ability to deliver high quality video in very low bit rates for delivery
over IP networks. The encoders for the Olympics are in addition to other
applications where the BBC employs Envivio encoders, including live video
contribution for the nightly news.

“Managing available bandwidth is critical to any live production, doubly
so when faced with the multiple simultaneous venues of a singular event like
the Olympics,” said Julien Sign s, President and CEO of Envivio. “We
are very pleased that the BBC again came to Envivio for a solution that
combines high quality video with very low bandwidth to meet the challenge of
this high profile event.”
