ATEME TITAN Becomes First Live Transcoder to Natively Support Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos
ATEME has integrated Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos immersive audio technologies into its TITAN Live software, making it the first solution on the market to encode and deliver both experiences natively.
“ATEME TITAN’s integration of Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and our Dolby audio codec technologies is a one-stop-shop that enables the seamless delivery of live events in Dolby,” says Jean-Christophe Morizur, senior director of pro products & solutions, Dolby Laboratories. “This will provide operators – like leading sport broadcasters or streaming providers – the ability to deliver incredible viewing experiences to their audiences leveraging Dolby and ATEME’s proven and efficient toolsets.”
The integration of Dolby Vision’s ultra-vivid picture quality into TITAN Live, ATEME’s software compression solution, will bring entertainment to life for viewers through incredible brightness, contrast, color and detail. Meanwhile, with Dolby Atmos, audiences can enjoy an immersive listening experience that will draw them closer to the story.
ATEME’s customers will benefit from reduced cost and complexity of production and distribution. The integration also gives more deployment flexibility as it is compatible with the cloud. It supports both Dolby AC-4 and Dolby Audio delivery formats, such as Dolby Digital Plus, for maximum player interoperability when delivering Dolby Atmos content.
This development comes as a result of a long-term partnership between ATEME and Dolby, with the two companies having worked closely together on numerous tentpole world events over recent years, such as marquee tennis tournaments and major football matches.
“Our partnership with Dolby is all about innovation to ultimately improve the quality of experience for the end user – but, just as importantly, this integration now makes deploying those technologies really straightforward and cost-effective,” says Thomas Burnichon, VP, innovation strategy, ATEME.
