Ateme launches NextGen Statmux bringing efficiency gains in NextGen TV

Ateme has introduced NextGen Statmux, designed for NextGen TV and other IP-based streaming services. The technology is said to enable 20% greater efficiency in video delivery over existing solutions, making it possible to add an extra service – even in UHD – in the same statistical multiplex/digital headend.

NextGen Statmux is designed to work with the NextGen TV standard ATSC 3.0. Typically, statmux solutions are in a transport stream environment and separated from the IP streaming delivery. By combining these two environments, Ateme is able to create an integrated, end-to-end statmux, from encoding to multicast, with dynamic statmux allocation. This creates greater efficiencies and eliminates the need for padding, thereby enabling zero null packets. With its increased efficiency, NextGen Statmux optimises resource consumption, contributing to reduced carbon emissions.

Moreover, NextGen Statmux can be optimised with a reduced statmux bandwidth to enable datacasting in the NextGen TV environment.

Julien Mandel, senior marketing director, contribution and distribution at Ateme, said: “Ateme’s NextGen Statmux maximises efficiency, enabling more channel choice for viewers, while maintaining the ability to provide exciting interactive features and monetisation opportunities with Datacasting. We look forward to demonstrating it at NAB 2023.”
