Orion Chooses ATEME’s Encoders and Decoders to Follow its Expansion Program in Russia and CIS

PARIS, MIAMI, SINGAPORE, MOSCOW — ATEME today announced that Orion, one of the largest satellite media platforms in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), selected ATEME’s encoders and decoders to follow its expansion program in the region. Based on the ATEME fifth Generation STREAM compression engine, the Kyrion encoder provides the best baseband video quality at minimum bitrates. This solution has been designed for contribution over satellite and IP networks, with value added features such as ultra-fast-boot, ultra-low latency, and ABR output. The ATEME Kyrion offers a software upgradable HEVC encoding option to support UHD video streaming, as well as legacy MPEG2 to H264 compressions.

“The Orion group is following an ambitious expansion program and for that reason we are looking for strong, experienced partners with proven technology,” says Кonstantin Saltikov, technical director at Orion group. “After conducting extensive testing of ATEME’s contribution technology live during the Rock Festival Nashestvie in July, we decided to choose ATEME’s equipment which performs perfectly in the field and delivers the highest video quality. A unique technology implemented in ATEME equipment for delivering video over standard internet connection allows us to provide an efficient content delivery from any place.”

Xavier Gentric, EMEA sales director at ATEME says: “ATEME has demonstrated excellence in providing a superior product and a high level of technical expertise. It provided us with an advantage over competitors and allowed us to deliver the high-quality broadcasts Orion relies upon.”
