ATEME’s Kyrion CM5000 Encoder Takes Home STAR Award
Following last month’s NAB Show in Las Vegas, ATEME earned a TVTechnology STAR Award (Superior Technology Award Recipient) for its Kyrion CM5000 encoder. Dedicated to broadcast contribution, the Kyrion CM5000 represents a major advance in the ATEME Contribution offering. Its modularity allows digital-satellite-newsgathering (DSNG) operators to address all cases of IP and satellite contribution within a unique platform: single or dual channel, built-in modulation or not, and support for all MPEG-2/MPEG-4 video-compression standards and profile.
Based on ATEME’s FPGA design, the Kyrion CM5000 is fully upgradable, allowing broadcasters, satellite uplinks, service operators, and DSNG professionals to benefit from state-of-art video-compression technology.
The STAR Awards are designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the media industry. A judging panel of broadcast industry experts reviewed a variety of products and services, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then submitted their award nominees.
