Encoding for any environment11 September 2016
The Kyrion range is being showcased, featuring what ATEME claimed are future-proof encoder and decoder solutions, specifically designed for contribution over satellite, fibre and internet networks. The products are also said to include quick start-up, ultra-low latency, ABR output and Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) that ensures high-quality OTT streaming. The latest updates to the range, including support for HEVC via a software upgrade, are being demonstrated.
The other IBC focus is on the Titan pure-software encoding solutions, including Titan Mux and Titan Edge. The company claimed the system can run on any commercial off-the-shelf server, in any environment, removing all infrastructure constraints.
ATEME believes that a ‘building block’ approach provides more flexibility, with software modules able to be combined as needed, including any input/output, any codec, any resolution, and from an encoder to a video headend
in a box.
Titan Mux is described as a virtualised multi-function software stream processor, while ATEME positions Titan Edge as a virtualised integrated receiver decoder transcoder. The latter combines decoding, encoding, multiplexing, time-shifting, advertising and packaging functionalities together.
