Paris, September 6th, 2011. ATEME announced today that the award-winning KFE file-transcoding product has been tested for interoperability within the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). In addition, the ATEME KFE software can now be installed and licensed directly by our customers for use with the Amazon EC2 cloud in conjunction with the ATEME cloud-install application guide and easy-to-use command line install application.
According to Rémi Beaudouin, Director of Product Marketing for ATEME, “Service providers, content owners, and cable TV providers now require highly elastic processing resources to handle the growing transcode transaction load required by Multi-Screen video applications. Enabling our KFE software for the Amazon EC2 Cloud is the logical next step”.

KFE is part of the ATEME’s TITAN software transcoding family. KFE is a multi-codec/multi-screen file-based processing solution producing high bandwidth efficient content for delivery to Television, Mobile and Internet screens. KFEis currently used worldwide by customers such as DirecTV, Orange or Japan’s NHK and is widely known as producing the highest quality video file transcoding output available.

“We have been pleasantly surprised by the performance of the Amazon EC2 data transfer and storage capabilities and the KFE runs blazingly fast with EC2,” added Rémi Beaudouin.
