Technology, Content and Quality of Experience Have Come Together to
Create Today's Compelling TV Alternatives
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.,- Envivio, the leading provider of live
and on-demand multi-screen IP video processing and delivery
solutions, and Sezmi, provider of all-in-one personalized television
services, today announced plans to host a joint presentation that
will explore how technology, content and a focus on quality of
experience have come together to create Sezmi's Hybrid TV service
that combines broadcast TV and Over the Top (OTT) video. The
workshop will be presented November 10 at 12:35 pm as part of
NewTeeVee Live at Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco.
"We are on the cusp of a
dramatic shift in how people watch television and where they view
their content," said Envivio President and CEO Julien Signes. "A lot
of things need to be done right in order for OTT television to be
accepted by the public at large. Few companies have paid as careful
attention to the details as Sezmi and the advanced infrastructure
for video processing they have built holds valuable lessons for
anyone who is looking at developing new business models."
"TV consumer's viewing habits are rapidly changing and they want to
take ownership of their television experience and create something
that fits their unique interest," said Phil Wiser, co-founder and
president of Sezmi. "Sezmi has worked with partners like Envivio to
create a first-of-its kind solution to deliver the range of options
people want while ensuring the highest quality of experience
regardless of whether the viewer chooses on demand content, live
broadcast television, or Internet content."
The session will be delivered by:
1. Travis Parsons, senior director, Business Development for Sezmi,
who has worked on and been responsible for the implementation of
numerous partnerships, including content, broadcast, retail and the
partner distribution relationships for Sezmi's end-to-end television
2. Arnaud Perrier, vice president, Solutions for Envivio, who is
responsible for Envivio's solutions offering and strategy, and for
