ATEME Kyrions to Stream Pan American Games

ATEME announced that Aldea Solutions has chosen the Kyrion CM5000 encoders to stream the Pan American Games to their customers throughout the Americas. The Games are scheduled for 10-26 July.

The ATEME Kyrion encoder is designed for low latency streaming over fiber, OTT and satellite networks, with ultra-fast-boot, main screen and ABR outputs, and integrated Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ). It is based on ATEME’s 5th Generation STREAM compression engine, which delivers the highest video quality at minimum bitrates with ultra-low latency. The Kyrion CM5000 is a future-proof solution, with an HEVC software upgradeable option.

“The Pan American games is a high profile event, carried by leading TV broadcasters throughout the Americas” said Lionel Bentolila, CEO of Aldea. “The ATEME Kyrion ensures high quality and guaranteed proven interoperability with various decoders and transcoders used by our customers”.

The Kyrion has become a synonym for major sports events distribution. Kyrion encoders are streaming thousands of hours of sporting events worldwide, from baseball, soccer, regional games, to the Olympics. With the Kyrion ultra low latency and high video quality, viewers are watching a truly live event.
