November 19, 2007

Dayton, OH -- At the TelcoTV Exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia, STRATACACHE announced the debut of its new ActiVia for Media IPTV edition. The show, themed IPTV Beyond the Box, was held in Atlanta from October 23-26, 2007 at the Georgia World Congress Center.

The ActiVia for Media IPTV edition provides powerful management and content tools for IP-based TV systems (IPTV). ActiVia for Media IPTV is capable of scheduling, managing, and controlling large enterprise IPTV networks of up to 100,000 concurrent devices, including set top boxes (STBs) and multipurpose PCs and servers used as IPTV stations. Companies using ActiVia for Media IPTV can control up to 100 independent enterprise live video channels and an unlimited number of Video-on-Demand (VoD) channels.
The ActiVia for Media IPTV edition can also control video channels with multiple independent audio channels, providing multilingual support for multinational customers. This multi-channel, multi-language feature gives the central system administrator the ability to distribute a single, bandwidth-efficient video layer while specifying which audio layer applies to a target site or region.

“This solution is ideal for large enterprises converting from bandwidth inefficient, legacy BTV technology that are seeking to move their video platform to the more efficient, flexible, and powerful IP world,” said Chris Riegel, STRATACACHE CEO.

Based on the proven ActiVia 3.2 platform, the IPTV edition is a fully managed system utilizing advanced IP-based networking. It works in satellite, WAN, and wireless environments and leverages STRATACACHE’s award-winning OmniCast content delivery engine for reliable multicast delivery. The ActiVia for Media solution can automatically pre-populate video to disk-enabled STBs during non-peak hours, allowing full on-demand (PVR) content access via remote branch office users at any time. Additionally, the platform supports the latest MPEG-4 H.264 and Windows Media codecs for exceptional video quality at low bandwidth rates.

“Modern enterprise IP networks enable convergence of legacy video networks onto a common IP fabric with significant cost benefits,” said Peter Christy, principal analyst of the Internet Research Group. “Integrated into the computer and data fabric, IPTV is infinitely more flexible and potentially useful than legacy TV. STRATACACHE’s solution provides powerful management and content tools to help enterprises take advantage of the remarkable potential of IPTV.”

The ActiVia for Media IPTV edition was recently deployed in partnership with Verizon to a leading U.S. retailer servicing over 2,600 sites and replacing a legacy broadcast BTV system. ActiVia for Media IPTV edition has been successfully integrated and deployed with multiple encoding and player platforms, including Envivio and VBRICK Encoders, Amino STBs, and STRATACACHE Spectra STBs and Media Players.
