Innovative Leaders Collaborate to Offer Rare Insiders’ Look at How Technology, Content and Quality of Experience Have Come Together to Create Today’s Compelling TV Alternatives


South San Francisco, CA – November 3, 2010 – 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 Signès. “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 service.

2. Arnaud Perrier, vice president, Solutions for Envivio, who is responsible for Envivio’s solutions offering and strategy, and for driving the company’s presence in each of the key vertical market segments. He is a recognized expert in video / audio codec and transmission technologies.

3. Julien Signès, president, CEO and co-founder of Envivio, a leading figure in the development of the MPEG-4 standard which underpins today’s IP-based video services and an innovator known for his vision in the creation and of new multimedia services.
