ATEME Encodes UHD VR for Super Bowl LI

ATEME’s codec was used for the VR near-live coverage in Ultra High Definition (UHD) of Super Bowl LI, in partnership with Fox Sports and LiveLike.

Six Ultra HD cameras were used for the VR feed with TITAN, ATEME’s software-based encoder-transcoder, supporting the OTT home delivery to LiveLike's app.

“We have worked very closely with ATEME for many years. The scalability and bandwidth efficiency of TITAN Live and TITAN File matches our VR broadcast specificities as well as our customer’s requirements”, said Fabrice Lorenceau, founder and LiveLike head of production. “On top of that, they provide a pristine video quality, which is crucial to get the best user experience”. 

Michel Artières, CEO of ATEME: “We’re proud to participate in VR development, and make VR streaming delivery become a reality. The challenge here was to lower the bitrate at its maximum to reach the wider possible audience, while maintaining high video quality.”
