Turk Telecom selects Envivio for IPTV launch

Envivio says it has contracted with Turk Telecom for its Convergence Series video head-end to serve Türk Telekom’s upcoming IPTV launch. Turk Telecom is one of the world’s largest Tier 1 telcos serving more than 30m customers.

The Türk Telekom IPTV headend is being installed by Birtel, Envivio’s partner in Ankara, Turkey. “The software-based compression architecture of the Envivio 4Caster C4 offers a unique level of flexibility,” said Metin Olgun, General Manager of Birtel. “This is critical to launching a new service as it enables operators to develop and enhance their service to maintain high levels of customer satisfaction.”

Turk Telecom will use Envivio’s 4Caster C4 SD and 4Caster HD30 HD MPEG-4 AVC encoders and the 4Manager NMS, to deliver a line-up of standard and high definition channels for its new IPTV service.
