ATEME, the world-leading provider of video compression solutions, and Civolution, the leading provider of technology and solutions for identifying, managing and monetizing media content, today announced that they have partnered to offer a unique solution for protecting premium VOD content while streamlining operational workflows.

The two companies have integrated Civolution’s NexGuard – PayTV & Online watermarking technology with KFE, ATEME’s multi-format file-based transcoder, creating a solution which allows content owners to confidently offer premium content – such as high definition movies – in an early release window to PayTV operators.

“This is a major technological advancement but also a crucial commercial move for the PayTV industry’’, said Wim Bus, Senior Vice President Product Management at Civolution. ‘’The combination of streamlined workflow processes and robust piracy deterrence tools for premium content means that satellite, cable and IPTV operators, video web services and e-tailers on the one hand and content owners on the other can collaborate to now offer movies in earlier release windows. This solution, which is already being deployed, has significant revenue potential as a new business avenue for the platform operators and content creators’’.

The PayTV industry has recognized early-release HD as a promising source of new income. However, the content industry has been reluctant to grant early access as ‘pirates’ could exploit the ‘analogue hole’ that exists after decryption and before the video is displayed. The Civolution-ATEME solution addresses this issue by embedding a watermark during the encoding and then adding a second, unique watermark when the content is accessed by each individual consumer, providing a powerful deterrence against piracy.

“Just producing content is not enough to fuel the growth of PayTV Operators’ multi-screen strategy”, said Rémi Beaudouin, Converged Media Product Marketing Manager at ATEME. “Operators have to offer best-of-breed content to their subscribers, but in the meantime keep production workflow costs under control. The integration of Civolution watermarking in ATEME’s KFE allows mass production of high quality video which is also automatically protected all in one process, which offers operational expenditure reduction’’.

Civolution and ATEME will be exhibiting at IBC 2010, Amsterdam, September 10-14th.

The TITAN platform – acclaimed for its high throughput and performance in large scale file transcoding workflows – expands its feature set to include live transcoding for Converged Media

On ATEME’s IBC booth #1D70 in Amsterdam, Titan Live offers an unprecedented Converged Media transcoding solution. Its versatility, scalability, and high density performance will undoubtedly catch the spotlight. “The Titan platform already supports large scale pay-TV VOD deployments in North-America and Europe, and has already exceeded initial client expectations of projected performance and throughput,” says Remi Beaudouin, Product Marketing Manager. “Its core transcoding engine KFE (Kyrion File Encoder) is widely used to create files for web and mobile delivery. The introduction of TITAN Live adds the ability to support IP to IP live transcoding and deliver all required web TV/mobile TV profiles. This positions TITAN as a unique solution enabling the convergence of live & file-based workflows,” adds Remi Beaudouin.

As ATEME CTO Pierre Larbier explains, Titan was designed to optimize operating efficiency in large deployments. “We understand that Converged Media services are bound to scale dramatically: More channels, more profiles, higher resolutions, and rising video quality expectations as viewers take TV anywhere for granted. Titan delivers efficiencies through density, reduced power consumption, simplified maintenance, and an intuitive workflow management interface” says Pierre Larbier.

Also at IBC, visitors will be able to experience the subtle differences among various broadcast Contribution formats. The ATEME booth will display two complete chains of ATEME encoders and decoders, allowing side by side comparisons of MPEG-2 versus MPEG-4, 4:2:0 versus 4:2:2 or 8-bit versus 10-bit.

On the Distribution side, ATEME highlights its newly released AM2102 multi-channel HD encoder and SR1000 dynamic rate allocator to be combined with the MC3000 multiplexer, which will enable significant density gains for turnkey video head-ends. These new additions to the ATEME suite of best-in-class solutions demonstrate ATEME’s commitment to continued product and system architecture innovation, and can be efficiently managed through our DataMiner based open vendor management system.
