Scenarist to Bundle ATEME Encoder for UHD Blu-Ray Authoring

Scenarist, LLC, a provider of professional Blu-ray Disc authoring systems, based in Novato, California, has entered into a commercial agreement with ATEME to bundle the ATEME TITAN File multi-codec/format transcoding system with its Scenarist UHD Workgroup authoring system.

The combination creates a powerful encoding and professional authoring solution for Ultra HD Blu-ray content creation.

Scenarist UHD has been developed in conjunction with feedback from its industry focus group (UHDG) partners who have been using the system since March of this year. ATEME’s TITAN encoder has become popular in cable head-end encoding for the 4K broadcast industry.

ATEME joined the UHDG in June and has been providing early UHD encodes in High Dynamic Range (HDR) for the Ultra HD Blu-ray launch expected this fall.

“ATEME and Scenarist have been working closely with Hollywood studios and facility owners engaged in Ultra HD Blu-ray title production since early 2015; and the combination of Scenarist UHD and ATEME TITAN encoding is playing a leading role in the launch of the new format,” said Rolf Hartley, managing partner at Scenarist, LLC.

The Scenarist UHD Workgroup will be available starting in Q4, 2015. Scenarist demonstrated the new Scenarist UHD Workgroup for Ultra HD Blu-ray at the IBC show, and ATEME TITAN File encoder demonstrations were held during IBC on stand 1.D71.
