Italian network infrastructure and services operator Rai Way is deploying the latest transcoding and headend technology from Ateme and ENENSYS as it switches to next-generation terrestrial digital television.
Rai Way launched a tender for the transition project in 2020. Ateme and ENENSYS proposed an integrated solution that includes Ateme’s TITAN software-based live video compression solution for the converged headend, with multifunctional software stream processing technology.
ENENSYS provided the Seamless IP & ASI switches (ASIIPGuard) and DVB-T/T2 network gateways (SmartGate T/T2), enabling SFN transmission (Single Frequency Network).
“Viewers want higher-quality experiences and stronger emotions from their video entertainment,” said Carlo Romagnoli, sales director Southern Europe from Ateme. “The move to DVB-T2 satisfies this need by facilitating the distribution of 4K content, as well as providing advanced features such as High Dynamic Range, High Frame Rate, Wide Colour Gamut and Next Generation Audio to enhance the viewing experience. We are delighted to have been able to help Rai Way in this transition”
“We are proud to have played a key role in this exciting project of national importance”, added Cyprien Galesne, sales manager Southern Europe at ENENSYS. “Our synergistic partnership with Ateme on digital media distribution projects continues from strength to strength, offering flexible solutions to complex challenges.”
