ENENSYS and Ateme partner to offer an ATSC 3.0-in-a-box solution for WCRN Boston
ENENSYS Technologies, a leading provider of media delivery solutions, is pleased to announce that WCRN TV 31 Boston has launched the region’s first ATSC 3.0/NEXTGEN TV platform with ENENSYS and Ateme’s ATSC 3.0 software-based solution. In addition to providing linear TV service over NEXTGEN TV, the service will also offer unlimited encrypted broadcast datacasting services to businesses and first responders.
Working with WCRN, Ateme and ENENSYS delivered an ATSC 3.0-in-a-box solution running several docker containers in a single server to provide for CAPEX savings and reduce power consumption. The ATSC 3.0-in-a-box includes the Ateme TITAN Live, which encodes each stream into DASH segments; the ENENSYS MediaCast ATSC, that delivers the DASH segments as well as all the ATSC 3.0 signalling over ROUTE; and the ENENSYS Broadcast Gateway SmartGate ATSC, that receives all the linear TV services and signalling to create the STLTP streams for ATSC 3.0 transmission.
“With the NEXTGEN TV market growing at a good pace, Ateme has been working hard to make sure our software is easily deployed with ENENSYS and our partners in the end-to-end solutions for ATSC 3.0. This helps broadcast stations simplify their workflow and deliver enhanced services to their viewers” stated Dave Brass, Vice President of Strategy and Market Development at Ateme.
“The ATSC 3.0-in-a-box solution is really a key differentiator when it comes to rapidly deploying a complete ATSC 3.0 air chain. On Friday July 8th and in less than four hours, WCRN TV was able to get on air with their NEXTGEN TV signal” stated Bruno Tariant, Head of Sales Americas at ENENSYS.
