RTB upgrades transmission with ATEME Kyrion encoding
To support the upgrade of its digital transmission system, Radio Television Brunei (RTB) has selected the Kyrion CM5000 encoder from ATEME. The broadcaster has provided a 24/7 satellite uplink service since 2006, with RTB4 International delivered over Asia via the Asiasat 5 satellite. In order to facilitate the transmission of the daily RTB International programme, RTB selected the Kyrion CM5000 encoder to upgrade the new configuration of its existing system.
The Kyrion CM5000 provides satellite distribution with what Ateme claims is a unique platform, providing single or dual channel capabilities, built-in modulation and support for all MPEG-2/MPEG-4 video compression standards and profiles. It is said to be fully upgradeable and future-proof, allowing broadcasters to benefit from the state-of-the-art in video compression technology with low latency and operational efficiency.
“A broadcasting organisation is defined by its engineering department,” said Pg Ismail Kifli, supervisory engineer for transmission and satellite section, Radio Television Brunei. “Our overall commitment to providing the highest-quality television to our viewers was a driving force in our selection of the Kyrion CM5000.”
