TDC taps Ateme for YouSee and Blockbuster

Danish telco and cable operator TDC’s Nuuday unit, which provides TV and VOD services for the group, has adopted video tech outfit Ateme’s Titan range of solutions for its video services.

Serving more than one million viewers through its brands YouSee, which provides viewers with 100 linear channels and VoD services, and Blockbuster, which offers a VOD, Nuuday implemented Ateme’s Titan software solutions for both live and file applications.

Titan Live is being used to deliver IPTV and OTT video, and it is being used in conjunction with Titan Mux, Ateme’s statmux solution, for DVB-C broadcasting with monitoring and control provided by AMSW. Ateme’s Titan Live encoder provides viewers with video on multiple devices across all YouSee and Blockbuster services. Nuuday has also adopted Ateme’s Titan File microservices application for its VoD services.

Peter Bukhave Hansen, SVP Tribe Lead Entertainment, Nuuday, said: “Our focus is delivering the best entertainment services to our customers. When renewing our compression platforms, we will always look for the solutions providing the best picture quality to enhance the experience for our customers. Second to quality we look for a vendor’s ability to adapt to new technology in this fast-changing market. Ateme and its versatile Titan encoding platform provides us with the key items we look for in a technology partner and we are looking forward to continued collaboration.”

Katrine Finstad, Sales Director, Ateme, said: “Nuuday was looking for a video encoding solution that would not only provide the best viewing experience for its service offering, but also had the technical toolbox to update workflows in the future. Our Titan Live encoder out-performed all others in picture quality assessments and with Anevia technology now providing further improvements, we are able to provide a best-of-breed solution for tomorrow, today. Nuuday is one of Scandinavia’s largest service providers and we are proud to be chosen to power the encoding on its live and file platforms.”
