High fidelity video compression for broadcast
and broadband.

World first in streaming technologies

Streaming Ultra HD P2P - France TélévisionsEurope’s largest event dedicated to the web industry LeWeb’13 took place in Paris this week, December 10-12.
Startups and web professionals were given the opportunity to explore today’s brightest technological innovations and dive into new ideas that could shape the future landscape of internet.
ATEME, LG Electronic and StreamRoot worked with France Télévisions to demonstrate a world first in streaming technologies.
Ultra-HD (4K) content was encoded by ATEME and streamed to a JavaScript/HTML5 SteamRoot client application that optimizes CDN usage using Peer to Peer progressive download.
The result was shown on a magnificent 65’ LG TV screen. With StreamRoot Technology, a video client will connect to other viewers’ machines that are accessing the same video, and will then download parts of it directly from peers rather than from a more distant server.

We are very pleased to say that it has been showcased for the first time in the world on Ultra-HD contents and that our encoder was a part of that demonstration.

The prize comes with several benefits of services from the CCI, CCE, Ubifrance and Coface, all of them being already long lasting and much appreciated partners of ATEME’s international strategy.


And now a few words from Emmanuel Boureau who is heading the sales teams in EMEA and APAC.

Dorota Bouskela: Could you please tell us why ATEME competed for this prize?Emmanuel Boureau

Emmanuel Boureau: Well, simply put, more visibility never hurts!
Obviously it’s beneficial both internally and externally. It’s nice recognition for our past efforts and it’s very motivating for our teams to know that their performance puts the company under the spotlight.

DB: Why do you think ATEME won?
EB: ATEME matches all criteria of the typical SME our government wants to help succeed and grow. We are highly innovative in a high tech space, we design and manufacture in France, we have more than 90% sales out of France and more than 50% out of Europe, we are growing and we have a high end positioning!

DB: Can you elaborate on this high end positioning?
EB: I mean we differentiate on the quality of our solutions, and we also extend this focus on excellence to all aspects of the relationship we develop with our clients.
We could describe our client base in the same way – we sell to the most highly respected brands around the globe.
There is no greater motivation than selling great products to great clients!

DB:Thank you Emmanuel. A last word about the hot topic of the moment?

The Kyrion CM5000 Encoder With Built in Satellite Modulation May Now Be Used in Brazil

PARIS, Nov. 26, 2013 – ATEME, a global leader in advanced video compression solutions for the broadcast industry, announced today that ANATEL, the National Telecommunication Agency of Brazil, has certified the Kyrion CM5000™ for commercial transmissions. DSNG (Digital Satellite News Gathering) professionals may now use this multi-awarded contribution encoder with built-in DVB-S/S2 modulation to save costs and space in their mobile units.

KEY FACTS:
ANATEL is a federal agency of the Brazilian government that regulates telecommunications nationwide. Any equipment used to broadcast an RF signal in Brazil requires prior certification by ANATEL.
ANATEL has certified ATEME’s Kyrion CM5000 encoder in configurations that include satellite modulation. This certification will allow all DSNG integrators and operators in the region to equip their vehicles and fly away kits with the state-of-the-art in video encoding.
The Kyrion CM5000 saves space in uplink vehicles and fly-aways compared to using external modulators. In addition, its built-in confidence monitor effectively removes the need for a separate monitor in the truck. The modulator of the CM5000 allows operators to reduce “roll-off factors”. This mode of satellite modulation, also known as “smaller guard intervals” allows up-linkers to maximize the effective bandwidth of satellite transponders.
Upcoming sporting events in Brazil create a very dynamic market for DSNG professionals. With next year’s soccer world cup in sight and the summer Olympic Games two years later, the need for SNG services in Brazil has dramatically increased, and will likely attract overseas operators and vehicles, for which ANATEL certification will also be required.

Gustavo Colombo Marra, director of application engineering, ATEME, said:

“The Brazilian market is of utmost importance to ATEME, and the certification of our Kyrion encoders by ANATEL is another token of our commitment to support our international customer base throughout the upcoming sporting events. Additionally, the CM5000 meets all operational expectations for satellite professionals and we are confident that our local partners will take advantage of this certification to upgrade or expand their fleet.”

Nicolas Moreau, ATEME Senior Product Marketing Manager-Contribution“While the extensions of the DVB-S2 standard are almost being finalized, contribution service operators feel the urge to maximize the use of their transponders. More bits in the same number of Hertz.
With NS3 modulation, the EBU can carry more than 200 Mbps of video on a single 72MHz transponder.
A special demodulator is required to receive and demodulate this non-standard downlink and a powerful IRD is mandatory to ingest such high Bitrate MPTS.
Kyrion DR5000 and DR8400 receivers have been successfully deployed in this configuration and support such high bitrates without any issue. So the equation is simple: NS3 modulation + ATEME DR5000 = Flawless reception. Providing the best contribution products and being future proof to new technologies, this is what we want to be recognized for at ATEME.”
