Envivio’s solution for delivering Mobile TV, its 4Caster C42 encoding/transcoding platform, now offers high definition (HD) video support to the Apple iPhone 4. The upgrade for 4Caster creates an unprecedented mobile video experience by enabling services for the first time that deliver HD live and on demand TV services that make full use of the high resolution iPhone 4 “Retina Display.”
The Envivio 4Caster solution provides simultaneous support for delivering services to the complete range of devices and technologies from Apple, including iPad, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod, Safari 5 and QuickTime X.
Support for the iPhone 4 is available as an upgrade for existing 4Caster C42 systems. The upgrade enables services to deliver video that is optimized for the 3.5-inch, 960×640 resolution “Retina Display.” The high pixel density of the display makes images appear exceptionally smooth and continuous. Envivio H.264 Extreme Main Profile Compression ensures the best quality video stream is delivered at precisely the resolution of the iPhone 4.
