Envivio Solutions Deployed by A1 Telekom Austria to Expand IPTV and Mobile TV Offering

Austria's Leading Telco Shows Continued Confidence in the Envivio IPTV and Multi-Screen Solution

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.(06 Sep 2012)

Envivio (Nasdaq:ENVI), a leading provider of live and on-demand multi-screen IP
video processing and delivery solutions, today announced that A1
Telekom Austria AG recently turned to Envivio to expand its A1 TV IPTV
service. Envivio Muse multi-screen encoding and processing software
running on the Envivio 4Caster 1RU appliances power the full lineup
of A1 Telekom Austria's broadcast and on-demand HD, SD and 3GPP mobile

Envivio partnered with local Austrian market specialists TV-Connect
Broadcast Systems, based in Vienna, for sales and installation support
services for the A1 Telekom Austria deployment.

First launched in 2006, A1 TV is Austria's fastest-growing TV service,
available to eight out of 10 Austrian households and counting more than
200,000 households as subscribers. More than 150 TV channels are
available in the basic package, with an additional 30 premium TV
channels, over 2,000 films and series in the integrated video library
and HD content available on-demand.

In 2010, A1 Telekom Austria first invested in Envivio 4Caster encoders
to deliver a service allowing subscribers to view live and on-demand
content, including sports, movies and TV programming, on IPTV set-top
boxes and 3G mobile devices. The new Envivio encoders perform
formatting, transcoding and packaging in Apple HTTP Live Streaming
(HLS) and Microsoft HTTP Smooth Streaming (HSS) formats for
multi-screen viewing.

"Envivio provides feature-rich next-generation solutions that help
operators deliver a high-quality multi-screen service," said Walter
Winzel, CEO of TV Connect. "The Envivio 4Caster encoders optimize video
quality while lowering bitrates for delivery, and our collaboration
with Envivio for the A1 TV IPTV deployment has resulted in a successful
and growing service."

television services across multiple platforms," said Julien
Signès, Envivio's president and CEO. "We value our existing
