Telia Estonia Picks ATEME Software Encoder for OTT

Telia Estonia has picked ATEME’s Titan encoding and streaming package for its latest OTT offering.

The package has three primary components covering streaming, encoding and operations management which the telco says will help extend the reach of HD services throughout Estonia and introduce new packaging formats.

ATEME’s Stream algorithms are designed to maintain content fidelity at minimum bitrate for the HD service, while the software-based encoder can run on any COTS (Common Off the Shelf) or virtualized server, enabling Telia Estonia to deploy live channels quickly at high quality, according to the company. With integrated Intel Xeon E3 processors incorporating CPU and GPU capabilities, Titan delivers up to 60 full HD profiles per RU (Rack Unit), reducing power consumption to a few watts per channel. Then ATEME’s management system helps simplify operational management.

“When looking to expand our existing OTT channels offering, the key requirement was compression efficiency, backup requirements and solution simplicity,” said Oliver Mändla, Broadcast Solutions Team Leader at Telia Estonia. “We can survive complete loss of one site and have automatic switchover to a backup site without customers even noticing.”

Based in Paris, France, ATEME provides video compression technology for broadcast, cable, DTH, IPTV and OTT service providers. It covers the AV1, HEVC, H264, MPEG2 codecs.
