PARIS – April 24, 2013 – ATEME, a global leader in advanced video compression solutions for the broadcast industry, announced today thatCJ Powercast, a major Korean digital broadcasting service, has selected the ATEME TITAN software platform to reduce complex workflow issues as part of its Video on Demand (VOD) and Catch-up TV content preparation services.
•As a member of the CJ Entertainment Group, a well-known media conglomerate based in Seoul, Korea, CJ Powercast hosts 62 cable TV channels and provides post-production and digital content warehouse services.
