Hessischer Rundfunk, one of the ARD members, a public broadcaster in Germany, has deployed ATEME’s compression and statistical multiplexing solutions for its DVB-T2 and OTT services. Its brand new HEVC statmux headend uses ATEME TITAN full-software solution for delivering 15 HD channels with premium video quality. The deployment enables cost-effective creation of live OTT channels, data-center economics and allows greater operational efficiencies. The solution was supplied by SatService GmbH, an ATEME business partner and product distributor for the DACH region.

“We decided to deploy the TITAN solution to deliver our premium services with the highest video quality on all kinds of end user devices,” said Jörg-Peter Jost, Senior Engineer at Hessischer Rundfunk. “The end-to-end solution by ATEME provides us with the full flexibility we need today in terms of hardware abstraction, third-party integration and custom service oriented operations under a unified management system.”

Igor Stankovic, EMEA Sales Manager at ATEME, says: “TITAN is the ideal solution for a converged headend, servicing main and multi-screen applications. As the industry moves to all-IP full-software video solutions fostering unparalleled benefits, more and more tier-1 broadcasters and service providers approve, adopt and deploy ATEME TITAN solutions all over the globe.”
