Accueil / Press / ATEME brings uncompromised quality to NAB

Introduction of world’s first 10-bit Hi422P support for contribution, Accelerated transcoding for content over multiple screens, Complete video head end with up to 1080p60 support

ATEME, the acknowledged leader in MPEG-4 video compression systems, will be demonstrating its latest solutions for the delivery of both on-demand and live content – including HD content encoding, ATSC & DVB head-ends, broadcast VOD, multimedia mobile and Web 2.0 – at the NAB Show (Stand SU6326) in Las Vegas, April 20-23, 2009.
The new standard in Contribution – 10-bit AVC/H.264 Encode/Decode Pair

A key attraction on the booth will be ATEME’s 10-bit Hi422P solution for the growing contribution market, which enables media transmission natively from one point to another. With 10-bit AVC/H.264 encoding the content is maintained throughout IP/MPLS network at the same resolution and picture information level as at source, ensuring pristine video quality throughout as well as increasing capacity over DVB-S2 satellite feeds with two HD streams instead of just one with the legacy codec.

The Hi422P 10-bit codec technology will be demonstrated at NAB2009 with ATEME’s Kyrion CM4101 encoder andDR8400 decoder pair, and is part of ATEME’s full portfolio of products.

Pierre Larbier, Chief Technology Officer of ATEME will also be presenting a white paper on 10-bit H.264 encoding at the NAB Conference on Wednesday 22nd April at 10am in the Las Vegas Convention Center: S226/227.

Accelerating content to Multi-screen from HD to mobile
ATEME will be demonstrating its Kyrion File Encoder (KFE 2), with Grid Computing hardware for accelerated compression of content. Grid Computing is a complete file-based processing solution that transcodes, faster than real time, any HD or SD content into H.264 stream compliant with the major Industry Standards. For example, a two hour-long HD movie can be encoded in just 10 minutes, making this the first truly effective solution for content delivery.

ATEME’s new Grid Computing concept works by producing a number of pristine video quality versions of the same asset simultaneously for delivery of content to television, mobile and internet devices. This innovative and highly scalable design has an incredibly low power usage, making it the environmental, as well as cutting-edge, technology of choice for content owners.

Turn key video head-end for broadcast and IPTV services up 1080p60
ATEME’s technologies provide unrivalled bandwidth efficiencies for broadcasters and content owners. At NAB2009 ATEME will be demonstrating its live video head-end targeted at IPTV and broadcast network services, enabling 24/7 linear content services.
ATEME’s encoders also support higher frame rates, such as 1080p60, providing future-proofed solutions for broadcasters and content owners alike.


ATEME is a world leading provider of MPEG-4 / H.264 and MPEG-2 bandwidth efficient compression technology. ATEME encoding solutions are deployed widely for broadcast contribution links, distribution, multi-screen live streaming, OTT and VOD applications.
