Turner Esporte Interativo Selects ATEME

Brazilian sport channel Turner Esporte Interativo has deployed ATEME’s Kyrion encoders and decoders to feed a new national video headend in São Paulo. As a first trial, Turner is using this solution to receive the soccer Euros in 4K/UHD from the International Broadcast Centre in France.

Based on the ATEME fifth generation Stream compression engine, the Kyrion encoder and decoder provides the best baseband video quality at minimum bitrates. This solution has been designed for contribution over satellite and IP networks, with added value features such as “ultra-fast-boot, ultra-low latency, and ABR output”.

"Known for its high-quality service, Turner needed a solution that delivers the highest video quality while meeting our bandwidth constraints”, said the EI/Turner Brazil operation and technology team. “With ATEME Kyrion encoder/decoder, we are now able to provide an exceptional viewing experience for a major European sport event while limiting our investment on link OPEX.”

Gustavo Dutra, Brazil’s country manager for broadcast at ATEME said: “Our Kyrion solution is future-proof, with a HEVC software upgrade option and pay-as-you-grow support: SD to HD to UHD, and MPEG2 to H.264 to HEVC. Turner Esporte Interativo is deploying the best-in-class solution while ensuring the future of its service with continue video quality enhancements.”
