Anevia, Com Net (CNI) and Minerva have entered into a collaboration which will see the arrival of partnered on a white-label hosted and managed solution for the delivery of advanced pay-TV services in the US.

Anevia NEA CDN 5July2019Anevia's Genova encoders will be the recommended encoding and transcoding technology for service providers offering services based on the Minerva YourTV Now cloud video offering, which is powered by CNI's video head-end.

"The encoders went live within our infrastructure during the first quarter of this year. Anevia provided strong support throughout the process, quickly resolving any issues," explained CNI CTO Randall Plaisier. "Because Genova is a software encoder, it enables future upgrades to 4K HDR for HEVC encoding. And it has enabled us to offer an ultra-low latency streaming service -- the first in North America. In this Phase Two level, we now recommend Genova as the first officially approved solution for operators who want to subscribe to the Minerva YourTV Now service and require encoding in their platforms."

Genova Live is an ultra-low latency software-based encoder and transcoder running on commercial off-the-shelf server platforms. Key features include simple licence-based HEVC coding, easy software-based upgrading, and 1080p HD capability with up to four profiles.

"We are very gratified that CNI chose to renew its trust in Anevia by selecting Genova Live after having deployed our packaging, Cloud DVR and CDN solutions," added Anevia North American sales manager Cory Schwall. "This builds on the momentum of successful deployments we have made with other major telcos in North America."
