České Radiokomunikace Taps ATEME Gear for DVB-T2 HEVC Services in Czech Republic
České Radiokomunikace’s has deployed ATEME’s compression and statistical multiplexing (statmux) solutions for the company’s DVB-T2 HEVC services. České Radiokomunikace’s brand new HEVC statmux headend uses ATEME’s TITAN full-software solution to deliver more than 15 channels in one DVB-T2 multiplex across the Czech Republic with premium video quality.
ATEME is the vendor of pure-software encoding solutions spearheaded by the TITAN software family, which delivers a high video quality at minimum bitrates for cable, DTT, DTH and OTT. ATEME’s modular, software-based approach provides more flexibility for customers, allowing them to combine any input/output, any CODEC and any resolution, from an encoder to a video headend in a box.
“We have developed a successful partnership with ATEME over the years, and their roadmap fits perfectly with our growth plans,” says Michal Bures, broadcast engineering supervisor at České Radiokomunikace. “That’s why we chose ATEME’s TITAN pure-software solution. Running on any commercial off-the-shelf server, it removes all infrastructure constraints and provides us with the full flexibility we need today.”
“On top of that, this future-proof solution is available on a pay-as-you-grow model, and will benefit from further ATEME R&D enhancements through simple software upgrades. We believe that the ATEME TITAN solution will support us in the transition from DVB-T/MPEG-2 to DVB-T2/HEVC.”
