At the KOBA show in Seoul, the partners will demonstrate the latest transcoding technology for multi-screen delivery

Seoul, 9 June 2011. ATEME, the worldwide leader in video compression, is celebrating this year a decade of cooperation with its Korean partner TnMTech. After pioneering file transcoding for the country’s first deployments of IPTV Video On Demand, TnMTech and ATEME expanded their customer references into IPTV live encoding and broadcast contribution deployments.

“Korean tier one customers expect suppliers to react very fast to their changing requirements” says Cheol-Keun Park, President of TnMTech. “Because ATEME own their compression technology, they were able to understand and respond positively to requests for new features, video quality enhancements, workflow adaptations, or interoperability with new devices. This has been a key to our joint success here” added Mr. Park.

Recent projects have also relied on a new partnership with SsangYong Information Communication Corporation (SICC), a world class system integrator with a broad range of capabilities and proven IPTV experience. SICC played a central role in the deployment of a large farm of Kyrion hardware encoders for the country’s leading IPTV service.

At the KOBA show in Seoul next week, TnMTech will be exhibiting in hall D, booth #3423. Demonstrations will include the TITAN transcoding platform for large scale multi-screen delivery of live and file content. Also on display will be ATEME’s disruptive implementation of MPEG-4 4:2:2 10-bit for very high quality transmissions of news and sports.
