ATEME Supplies Contribution Encoding For Russia’s Channel One

JSC Channel One Russia, a premiere Russian-language television broadcaster with more than 250 million viewers in 190 countries, has selected ATEME’s contribution technology to support its international TV content exchange.

ATEME’s Kyrion encoder technology is specifically designed for contribution over satellite and IP networks, with value-added features such as ultra-fast-boot, ultra-low latency, and ABR output. Based on the ATEME fifth Generation STREAM compression engine, the Kyrion encoder provides high-quality baseband video at minimum bitrates.

Valentina Udalova, network director at Channel One, said they first tested the Kyrion encoder during the implementation of the European Broadcast Union FUNA project (for international news exchange) and it worked remarkably well.

“Compared to currently used equipment it has plenty of advantages such as small form factor and has [an] unexpectedly low noise level,” said Udalova. “In addition, it offers a very fast boot time, an intuitively web-based GUI with informative status and measurement features of the equipment and a variety of license options, which are included in the base package.”

The Kyrion also offers a software upgradable HEVC encoding option to support UHD video streaming as well as legacy MPEG-2 to H264 compression schemes.
