ATEME TITAN first live transcoder to natively support both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos Technologies
ATEME, the leader in video delivery solutions for broadcast, cable TV, DTH, IPTV and OTT, has announced it has integrated Dolby Vision® HDR and Dolby Atmos® immersive audio technologies into its TITAN Live solution, making it the first solution on the market to encode and deliver both experiences natively.
This solution enables content providers and redistributors the ability to offer viewers an incredible and immersive viewing and audio experience by combining ATEME’s and Dolby’s best-in-class innovations in sight and sound.
The integration of Dolby Vision’s ultra-vivid picture quality into TITAN Live, ATEME’s high video quality, high-density software compression solution, will bring entertainment to life for viewers through incredible brightness, contrast, color, and detail. Meanwhile, with Dolby Atmos, audiences can enjoy a completely immersive listening experience through enveloping audio that will draw them closer to the story.
With ATEME’s TITAN Live encoding solution now providing support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, ATEME’s customers will benefit from reduced cost and complexity of production and distribution. The integration also gives more deployment flexibility as it is compatible with the cloud. It supports both Dolby AC-4 and Dolby Audio™ delivery formats, such as Dolby Digital Plus, for maximum player interoperability when delivering Dolby Atmos content.
This development comes as the result of a strong and successful long-term partnership between ATEME and Dolby, with the two companies having worked closely together on numerous tentpole world events over recent years, such as marquee tennis tournaments and major football matches.
Jean-Christophe Morizur, Senior Director of Pro Products & Solutions, Dolby Laboratories, commented, “ATEME TITAN’s integration of Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and our Dolby audio codec technologies is a one-stop-shop that enables the seamless delivery of live events in Dolby. This will provide operators – like leading sport broadcasters or streaming providers – the ability to deliver incredible viewing experiences to their audiences leveraging Dolby and ATEME’s proven and efficient toolsets.”
Thomas Burnichon, VP, Innovation Strategy, ATEME, said, “Our partnership with Dolby is all about innovation to ultimately improve the quality of experience for the end user – but just as importantly, this integration now makes deploying those technologies really straightforward and cost-effective.”
