ATEME makes HEVC contribution with new codec option
ATEME has announced that its Kyrion contribution encoders and decoders can now be upgraded with an HEVC codec via a simple software upgrade. The HEVC codec performances, based on ATEME fifth generation STREAM compression engine, are tied to the contribution market with five profiles starting from Main 4:2:0 – 8 bits up to High 4:2:2 – 12 bits for an ultimate video compression quality.
ATEME’s HEVC codec can be used for regular SD and HD interlace content as well as progressive up to 1080p50/60 with a bandwidth efficiency up to 50% compare to H.264 codec. The Kyrion HEVC encoders and decoders deliver the highest video quality with Ultra Low Latency mode below 100ms. Based on a future-proof design, Kyrion product line supports pay-as-you-grow operations based on multiple codecs resolutions.
