Chinese public broadcaster Taiwan Broadcasting System has used ATEME’s Kyrion encoders to roll out HD for digital terrestrial television.

“This is a complex system, for which we need absolute reliability as a public broadcaster, at an affordable cost,” said Chin-chang Chen, engineering manager at Taiwan Broadcasting System. “ATEME’s solution came on top against all of our selection criteria.”

“We pack one HD MPEG-4 and 3 SD MPEG-2 channels in less than 15 Mbps, and yet the video quality is superb,” said Chao-I Lee, who supervised the deployment of the system at the broadcasting centre in Taipei on behalf of Taiwan Broadcasting System’s engineering department.
