Ateme Live Streams UEFA Champions League Final

Tivify, the OTT television platform owned by Spain’s TVUP Media Telecom S.L., will live-stream the UEFA Champions League Final using Ateme’s latest TITAN transcoding solutions. Based on the Common Media Application Format (CMAF), which significantly reduces latency, TITAN has already been used in one of the only real-life low-latency streaming deployments for an improved viewing experience.

TVUP first implemented TITAN transcoding solutions for its streaming services, including the Tivify OTT platform, in 2020. Tivify offersfree access to more than 130 streaming channels, including some of the most popular channels in Spain. The UEFA Champions League Final marks the first time that Tivify will use the proven CMAF features within TITAN to live-stream a football match at a latency matching broadcast levels.

Latency issues in live streams can be extremely frustrating for viewers, particularly for sports coverage, where streams typically lag around 30 seconds behind the live broadcast. Ateme’s video-delivery solutions enable low latency, bringing a vastly improved live-streaming experience to viewers by eliminating the “spoiler effect” caused by neighbors’ reactions occurring seconds before the action that triggered them is streamed to screens.

The 2022 UEFA Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid takes place at the Stade de France, Paris, at 9pm CEST on May 28th, 2022.
