Press release date: April 7, 2014

Company Leads the Industry in Developing High Performance, HEVC-Ready Hardware and Software Solutions

LAS VEGAS - (National Association of Broadcasters, South Hall, Upper, Booth #SU7102) - ATEME, a global leader in advanced video compression for the broadcast industry, today announced key enhancements to its TITAN Live video processing solution.

As a leading R&D company in the digital video broadcasting market, ATEME delivers products that support the latest in advanced compression technology, including High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV).


-- TITAN Live Any-to-Any - ATEME's carrier-grade video processing solution
for next generation TV Head-End is a real-time multi-channel/format
encoder/transcoder for multi-screen delivery of linear channels (TV,
mobile and web). The product has been enhanced with a variety of
features, including support for live 4Kp60 HEVC encoding.
-- Best-in-class video quality as low as 19 Mbps for 4Kp60.
-- Uses 4x 3G-SDI inputs to directly ingest the baseband/uncompressed
UHDTV signals with full frame processing, making it a true 4K
encoder versus encoding the signal in two steps; a process that
tends to degrade video quality.
-- One TITAN chassis presently supports two UHDTV channels.
-- TITAN Live can be used from any source, to any format, providing
broadcasters with the ability to experiment with UHDTV and then
re-use TITAN for other projects, including HD or SD, streaming, VOD
or catch-up TV applications.
-- Tested and proven to work with all available set-top-boxes,
television sets and software players.
-- LiveSphereâ„¢ - This groundbreaking 360 video broadcast solution for
live entertainment, sporting events and television shows provides an
immersive experience for consumers on second screens.


-- UHDTV on demand - In partnership with LG Electronics, this demonstration
will show 4K VOD content encoded with TITAN in HEVC Main 10 profile and
displayed on a breathtaking 65" LG television.
-- Kyrion contribution network management demonstrations - ATEME will
demonstrate the in-depth integration of its Kyrion encoders and decoders
into advanced video network management software.
-- LiveSphere - This demonstration will explore different types of content
and use cases for 360 television, on several devices including tablet,
smartphone and a virtual reality headset.

Remi Beaudouin, director of product marketing, ATEME, said:
