Envivio recently filed its S-1 statement for an IPO, revealing fiscal year 2011 profits (ending 1/31/11) of $30M, up from $16M in 2010. In our recent report, Worldwide Pay TV Encoders and Transcoders, we wrote about Envivio:

Envivio is a privately held company headquartered in South San Francisco, with R&D offices just outside Rennes, France. It is funded by a combination of private equity (Atlantic Bridge, Credit Agricole, etc.), venture capital (Crescendor Ventures), and strategic investors (Intel Capital, NTT finance, and Samsung Ventures). Envivio, historically, was strong in serving IPTV markets. About 2 years ago, the company began serving mobile markets and is now seeing a dramatic increase in N-Screen deployments.

Envivio’s 4Caster platform supports live and offline encoding and transcoding to both traditional broadcasters (cable, satellite, and telco) as well as Internet companies. While the company has, in the past, developed encoders using ASICs, FPGAs, and DSPs, its current product line is based on COTS Intel architecture processors. Envivio supports the major (Adobe, Apple, and Microsoft) adaptive streaming formats. Envivio has customer deployments with large European operators including France Telecom and Orange.
