ATEME Provides Movistar+ with a Complete Video Headend for Live DTH/OTT Distribution
PARIS, DENVER, SINGAPORE, SAO PAULO — ATEME, the leader in video delivery solutions for broadcast, cable TV, DTH, IPTV and OTT, today announced that Movistar+, the audiovisual entertainment arm of Spanish media leader, the Telefónica Group, has chosen to implement ATEME’s TITAN solution, a future-proof converged software headend, for distribution of its live DTH/OTT services.
By choosing ATEME’s powerful transcoding technology, Movistar+ is enhancing its video quality and user experience, reinforcing its position as the leading platform in the Spanish market.
ATEME’s TITAN solution provides Movistar+ with a number of benefits, including simple migration to the virtual video headend. This is due to TITAN being a pure software-based encoder that can run on any COTS or virtualized server leveraging the broad support of inputs/output formats and enabling customers to quickly deploy high quality live channels. TITAN also provides Movistar+ with outstanding bandwidth savings in MPEG-2 and H.264, resulting in significant satellite transponder usage, as well as delivering the highest video quality at the lowest possible bitrate which is crucial to get the best user experience.
“After so many years of working with the Telefónica Group worldwide, we are very proud that Movistar+ has chosen to deploy our converged DTH/OTT headend in Spain. This certainly reinforces our position within the Group and shows how committed ATEME is towards its key customers,” said Cedric Pesier, Sales Director, ATEME. “Throughout the execution of the project and beyond, we provided Movistar+ with the highest efficiency transcoding solution and the best possible support. We are proud to have contributed to providing Movistar+’s end users with top video quality premium content delivery.”
Eugenio Lojo, Head of Transmission and Conditional Access, Movistar+, commented, “ATEME has consistently proven itself to be an innovative and reliable partner to Telefónica Group and so was the natural choice for this project. ATEME’s TITAN solution will ensure we’re able to deliver high quality video to our vast customer base so they can enjoy our lineup of original content and the excellent service they expect from us.”
