SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Envivio (Nasdaq:ENVI), a leading provider of software-based video processing and delivery solutions, today announced that Envivio 4K HEVC compression will be demonstrated by industry partners Broadcom, MStar Semiconductor and STMicroelectronics in Las Vegas during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

These leading providers of chipsets and semiconductors for consumer devices, including television sets and set-top boxes (STBs), will feature content encoded by Envivio in 4K (Ultra HD) format, using the latest generation HEVC (H.265) video codec.

"Envivio collaborates closely with decoding technology providers to ensure high quality and interoperability for service providers as they implement new technologies like 4K and HEVC," said Jean-Pierre Henot, Envivio's CTO. "Our mission is to deliver the best possible video quality while optimizing bandwidth efficiency. 4K HEVC takes the in-home viewing experience to a whole new level, and we are pleased to showcase our most advanced compression demonstrations with Broadcom, MStar and ST at CES 2014."

Broadcom and Envivio are working together on 4K HEVC trials with several Tier 1 video service providers as part of Envivio's HEVC Early Access Program.

MStar decoder chipsets are embedded in connected TVs supporting HEVC and 4K from multiple manufacturers. "We are delighted about this new collaboration. We expect HEVC will take off at a very fast pace, and interoperability is the key for a smooth deployment," said Phillippe Notton, vice president, set-top-box business unit.

ST's Cannes and Monaco families of system-on-chip (SOC) solutions for set-top boxes support 4K HEVC decoding. "HEVC is a game changer and ST is embracing this change with its latest families of SoCs," said Andrew Cofler, system architecture director, unified platform division, STMicroelectronics. "With the increasing demands for higher resolutions and quality, the best possible compression technologies are mandatory."
