Hessischer Rundfunk (hr), a regional affiliate of German public broadcaster ARD, has chosen compression and statistical multiplexing solutions from French video encoding solutions provider Ateme for its DVB-T2 and OTT services.
Its new HEVC statmux headend uses ATEME’s full-software solution Titan for delivering 15 Full-HD channels. The solution was supplied by SatService, an Ateme business partner and product distributor for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
“We decided to deploy the Titan solution to deliver our premium services with the highest video quality on all kinds of end-user devices,” said Jörg-Peter Jost, Senior Engineer at hr. “The end-to-end solution by ATEME provides us with the full flexibility we need today in terms of hardware abstraction, third-party integration and custom service oriented operations under a unified management system (AMS).”
Kai Koppenburg, Sales Director at SatService, added: “Together with Ateme we are proud to deliver this full-software solution. It enables cost-effective creation of live OTT channels, data-centre economics and allows greater operational efficiencies.”
