SVG Europe is delighted to announce a new addition to its ranks of Gold sponsors in the form of ATEME. Headquartered in Vélizy near Paris, France, ATEME is a global solution provider in advanced video compression for the broadcast and telecom industries. It operates worldwide through its extensive distribution network and support offices.
Thanks to a pioneering commitment to standards and two decades of continued research investment, ATEME today offers advanced implementations of the MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265 codecs. These homegrown algorithms are described as “the pride of the company and the heart of [its] products and solutions.”
ATEME primarily targets bandwidth-sensitive applications where its compression efficiency delivers an increased Quality of Experience for the audience, while reducing customers’ operating costs.
ATEME encoding solutions are deployed widely in broadcast contribution links over satellite or fiber networks, in video distribution to the home, and in multi-screen delivery of live channels and VOD. The company addresses compression applications ranging from UHD TV and 3D to web and mobile streaming.
The company’s technology has been used during the production of countless major sports events. Recent deployments include the use of its 4K HEVC (H.265) live encoding platform during the French Open, and the specification of Kyrion encoders and decoders to stream the 2015 Southeast Asian Games over IP.
