PARIS, 3rd of June, 2015 ATEME today announced it has been selected to provide the primary live video encoding platform in 4K HEVC (H.265) during the French Tennis Open. The images are being broadcast during the two week tournament on the Fransat platform, which provides the distribution of the French free to air broadcasting service (TNT) by satellite (EUT5°W), and can be viewed on any 4K compatible TV.

News Facts:

The live video is encoded in Ultra High definition at 50 frames per second and uses the colour spectrum Rec.709. The HEVC codec reduces bandwidth by 30% to 50%, compared to MPEG-4, the previous generation codec, thereby improving image quality and reducing the cost of UHD live broadcasting.
