In what is being claimed as a major breakthrough in 4KTV workflow speed and cost savings, ATEME has integrated the Stream Compression Engine with its TITAN file encoding platform.

The primary benefit of the integration, claims ATEME, is to boost HEVC processing speed for main screen and multiscreen applications, while delivering superior video quality at minimum bitrate.

TITAN File is ATEME's flagship virtualised, software-based file processing solution for set-top box (STB) video-on-demand (VOD), over-the-top (OTT) VOD, post-production, playout and archive. It supports CODECs including HEVC, H264, MPEG2 and ProRes. It is also said to be the first-to-market professional, deployed solution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) support.

"As operators and networks look to broaden their offering, 4K is becoming an essential service," commented Jérôme Viéron, ATEME's director of product management. "ATEME TITAN File with the Stream Compression Engine enables our customers to launch a true 4Kp60 VOD service over managed and unmanaged networks."
