Video networking services Aldea Solutions chose the ATEME Kyrion CM5000 encoders to stream the Pan American Games to its customers throughout the Americas.
The Kyrion encoder is designed for low latency streaming over fibre, OTT and satellite networks, and features ultra-fast-boot, main screen and ABR outputs, together with integrated Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ).
It is based on ATEME’s 5th Generation STREAM compression engine, which the company claimed delivers the highest video quality at minimum bitrates using ultra-low latency.
ATEME described the Kyrion CM5000 as a futureproof solution, with an HEVC software-upgradeable option.
“The Pan American games is a high profile event, carried by leading TV broadcasters throughout the Americas,” said Lionel Bentolila, CEO of Aldea. “The ATEME Kyrion ensures high quality and guaranteed proven interoperability with various decoders and transcoders used by our customers.”
“The Kyrion has become a synonym for major sports events distribution,” said Rémi Beaudouin, vice president of marketing at ATEME. “Kyrion encoders are streaming thousands of hours of sporting events worldwide, from baseball, soccer, regional games, to the Olympics. With the Kyrion ultra low latency and high video quality, viewers are truly ‘living’ the event.”
