Called a "solid" 4K/HEVC encoder by one Diamonds judge, the Muse 4K Ultra HD was singled out by another judge because it automates and controls headend components delivering video services, for all resolutions and bit rates and includes associated reporting.
The Muse Ultra HD is a high-quality live or file-based video encoding/transcoding solution. A proprietary multiprocessor software approach distributes HEVC encoding across multiple server nodes to provide the power to perform high-quality HD compression on industry-standard blades. Envivio says this enables migration to HEVC and cost-effective, scalable deployments in the data center and cloud. The fact that the Muse Ultra HD is software-based means operators can enhance their services with frequent updates to improve density and video quality.
