Happy New Year from ATEME!
2014 begins with the annual Consumer Electronics Show, and ATEME’s Americas team will be there to meet with customers and highlight several important developments in the ATEME product line that enable exciting new consumer technologies that will be highlighted at CES.
Since 1967, the Consumer Electronics Show has been the most important industry event for launching innovative new technologies, most notably in the video entertainment sector. CES was the launchpad for the VCR in 1970 and the DVD in 1996. I’ve been attending off and on for the past 20 years and was able to witness the excitement of the launches of HDTV in 1998, 3DTV in 2009, and Ultra HD last year (2013). In 2014, the focus will be on the next evolution of the television set with the 4K LED LCD displays. For those of us in the media industry, this show is really the world’s biggest toy store! My colleagues and I look forward to seeing what new and innovative products are introduced and what the popular press sees as ground-breaking.
ATEME will be showcasing several technologies designed to enable content distribution in the 4K environment.
- Most notably, our TITAN File transcoding platform has the most advanced and efficient implementation of HEVC, the advanced compression technology that enables the higher resolutions of 4K and Ultra HD. HEVC is currently available on the TITAN File platform and is already in use by some of our customers.
- In addition to the TITAN File platform, ATEME will also be demonstrating the TITAN Live transcoding platform as well at our line of Kyrion contribution encoders and decoders, all designed to ultimately enhance the home viewing experience when implemented by content and service providers.
If you or your company will be attending CES, please stop by our suite #818, located at the Embassy Suites Las Vegas Convention Center, 3600 Paradise Rd (just south of the Las Vegas Convention Center) for a demonstration of these exciting technologies!
My colleagues with the ATEME Americas team and I look forward to seeing you.
