Ateme Enables Solbox to Build Cloud-Based VOD Transcoding Farm
Ateme, the leader in video delivery solutions for broadcast, cable TV, DTH, IPTV and OTT, announced that it has enabled Solbox, the market leader in CDN and cloud computing solutions in Korea, to build a private VOD transcoding farm in the cloud servicing OTT service providers.
The Korean CDN provider used Ateme’s cloud-native, microservices-based TITAN File transcoding solution to transcode video files in a flexible and cost-effective way, with smart allocation of cloud computing resources on an as-needed basis.
This flexibility allows Solbox to meet its OPEX requirements while achieving outstanding video quality. Indeed, Solbox is able to facilitate HD and UHD quality content for its OTT customers — ultimately benefiting viewers, while also allowing them to watch their favorite shows from any location.
“Ateme’s flexible solution was unmatched compared to other vendors’” says SeungHwan Yu, managing director at Solbox. “Ateme’s Titan File MS met every one of our business and technical requirements, including the ability to achieve optimum video quality of H.264 HD and HEVC UHD, an API base workflow that made integration easy, and an OPEX model to scale as we grow. We now have a top-notch solution in place.”
“Viewers in the region are increasingly demanding HD/UHD content that they can view on any device,” says Boyang Ang, Korea country manager at Ateme. “Meanwhile, organizations are balancing these evolving viewer requirements with the need to move to the cloud. We’re delighted that our flexible solutions have helped Solbox achieve both these objectives, with deployment taking place only six months after our initial meeting.”
