Faroese Telecom-owned Faroe Islands service provider Televarpið has tapped Ateme to provide compression and statistical multiplexing technology for its DVB-T, IPTV and OTT TV services.

Televarpið’s new statmux headend is using the software-based Ateme Titan platform to deliver 50 OTT TV channels and 32 digital-terrestrial services across the country in HD.

According to Ateme, Titan is designed for cable, DTT, DTH, IPTV and OTT, and can support video from mobile resolutions up to UHDp60. It supports SDI and IP I/Os and includes encoder, transcoder, multiplexer, statmux, packager and origin server.

“We were looking for a product that combines high video quality with an ease of use that would simplify operations in the field,” said Edvard í Skorini, CEO of Televarpið. “By choosing Ateme common VBR/CBR/ABR encoding platform, we were able to meet our operational requirements and reduce our CAPEX links.”

Xavier Gentric, sales director at Ateme said: “Running on any commercial off-the-shelf server, Titan is the ideal solution for converged headend, servicing main and multi-screen applications. As the industry is moving to all-IP full-software video solutions, more and more tier 1 broadcasters and service providers approve, adopt and deploy Ateme Titan solutions all over the globe.”
