Envivio Launches Guru 4.0 Video Network Management System
Automated service scheduling, improved user interface and other enhancements simplify video headend management
South San Francisco, CALIF.(28 Jan 2014)
Envivio (NASDAQ: ENVI), a leading provider of software-based video processing and delivery solutions, today introduced Envivio Guru 4.0, an enhanced version of its network management system (NMS). Formerly called Envivio 4Manager, Guru 4.0 includes a new and improved user interface, as well as tools such as enhanced monitoring, connectivity enhancements, device auto-discovery and scheduled service control. These new features simplify video network management and facilitate greater service automation.
Guru Service Scheduling is designed to allow operators to automate video service features at the service level, instead of needing to adjust specific devices. For example, the operator can use the Guru user interface to schedule blackouts, logo insertion or live-to-file recordings for a specific channel, at a particular day and time.
Based on the robust Skyline DataMiner NMS, Envivio Guru is designed to maximize video headend availability and reliability by reporting system malfunctions and offering advanced automatic 1+1 and N+M redundancy protection switching. Guru is integrated with dozens of third-party devices, enabling system compatibility for a wide variety of network architectures.
“Envivio Guru is an ideal system for managing multiscreen and traditional broadcast headends from a single platform,” said Arnaud Caron, solution architect for Envivio. “The recent user interface enhancements and introduction of new features including automated service scheduling significantly improve workflow management and communication, thereby reducing operational complexity and cost.”
Video quality can be monitored for all resolutions and bitrates in real-time, to ensure superior quality of experience (QoE) for consumers, across all devices. Guru is designed to provide advanced failover mechanisms, fast restore capabilities thanks to an automatic backup of headend configurations, and system-generated alerts to enable quick problem resolution.
