Amber Technology new Australia and New Zealand Distributor of ATEME


ATEME is a global leader in HEVC, H.264, MPEG2 video compression solutions for broadcast, cable, DTH, IPTV and OTT. The company primarily targets bandwidth sensitive applications where its unrivalled compression efficiency delivers an increased quality of experience, while reducing its customers operating costs. Thanks to a pioneering commitment to standards and two decades of continued research investment, ATEME offers today the most advanced implementations of the MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265 codecs. These in-house codecs are the pride of the company and the heart of ATEME’s products and solutions. The company addresses compression applications ranging from Ultra High Definition TV and 3D to web and mobile streaming.

At SMPTE17 Exhibition in July, Amber Technology will introduce ATEME’s version 4 of TITAN Live pure-software encoding solutions, highlighted by the TITAN software family that can run on any commercial off-the-shelf server, in any environment, removing all infrastructure constraints. ATEME’s “building block” approach provides even more flexibility as software modules can be combined as needed: any input/output, any CODEC, any resolution, from an encoder to a video headend in a box.

ATEME’s Kyrion range features future-proof encoder and decoder solutions that have been specifically designed for contribution over satellite, fibre and internet networks. The products also include quick start-up, ultra-low latency, ABR output and Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) that ensures high quality OTT streaming.

Thomas Dufermont, Marketing Manager at ATEME will deliver a paper on “Virtualised 4K-HDR Video Solutions” at the 9.30-10.45am session of the SMPTE Conference on Thursday July 20.

Yoann Poizeau, Vice President of Sales Asia Pacific for ATEME commented “We are pleased to announce this new partnership, which will work to strengthen our position in the Australia and New Zealand broadcast markets. We look forward to working with the experienced team at Amber Technology to further build our presence in this region.”

“ATEME, and the new TITAN solution in particular, represents a paradigm shift in the way broadcast solutions are delivered to the market” said Peter Amos, Managing Director of Amber Technology. “We are delighted to be able to offer local sourcing, supply and support for this technology-leading brand, which complements our existing portfolio of Media Systems solutions.”
