Hessischer Rundfunk, one of the ARD members, a public broadcaster in Germany, has deployed ATEME’s compression and statistical multiplexing solutions for its DVB-T2 and OTT services. Its brand new HEVC statmux headend uses ATEME TITAN full-software solution for delivering 15 full-HD channels with premium video quality. The solution was supplied by SatService, an ATEME business partner and product distributor for the DACH region.
