Dangerous Liaisons as Globo Brazil unveils smart 4K HDR VOD service
Globo, the largest commercial TV network in Latin America, has launched the first 4K HDR VOD product in Brazil using ATEME TITAN. This new product is available on smart 4K and HDR TVs with Globo’s OTT multi-screen platform, Globo Play, and is also accessible on PCs, smartphones and tablets. The first content to benefit from UHD resolution and HDR technology is Ligações perigosas (also known as Dangerous Liaisons) and has been available to watch since July.
TITAN is a multi-codec/format video transcoding software for mezzanine, STB and ABR VOD, post production, playout and archive applications. It is a virtualised software-based solution, hardware agnostic, delivering high video quality at high density. ATEME’s building block approach provides flexibility as software modules can be combined as needed: any input/output, any codec, any resolution, from an encoder to a video headend in a box. TITAN can run on any commercial off-the-shelf server, in any environment, removing all infrastructure constraints and reducing time-to-market and OPEX.
“Globo’s main objective is to ensure its customers benefit from the latest technologies,” said Marcelo Souza, digital media technology director at Globo. “ATEME TITAN enables us to meet our goal by providing high quality workflows involving high dynamic range (HDR).”
Gustavo Dutra, Brazil’s country manager at ATEME, said: “ATEME deployed its TITAN solution at Globo’s premises earlier this year. With TITAN being a future-proof solution, Globo can easily benefit from the latest TITAN software upgrade, including HDR capabilities. It will support Globo’s continued development in TV for years to come.”
