UK-Based D2 Selects Ateme’s Automated Encoding Platform for Local TV Network

D2 Technologies, a UK-based systems integrator, has selected Ateme’s Titan solution to support country-wide DTT services for a client that requires the encoding of more than 150 channels and delivery of premium video quality to viewers. The platform also facilitates the best possible use of available bandwidth.

Ateme provided D2 with technology to support a complete video headend, including the software-based Titan Live, Mux and Ateme Management System (AMS), as well as all necessary resources required for a high-quality service. As part of the selection process, the Titan Live encoder and Titan Mux have been validated at the DTG test facility for use on the UK Freeview network. The Titan Live is the only software-based encoder currently tested at the facility.

Titan is a virtualized software-based encoder-transcoder, designed for DTT, DTH and OTT. It supports HEVC, H.264 and MPEG-2 codecs, for mobile to 4K / UHD resolutions. It is a high-density solution that delivers the highest video quality at minimum bitrates. Titan Live is a complete distribution solution: encoder, transcoder, multiplexer, statmux, packager and origin.

Dan Cherowbrier, Technical & Ops Director, D2, said that the performance and flexibility of Ateme’s Titan solution matched perfectly with his ambition for the next generation of DTT compression not tied to discrete hardware components.
