ATEME Releases Third Generation H.264 Core Engine with a Host of New Features Aimed At IPTV, Contribution, and DTV Applications

BIEVRES, France—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 9, 2008— ATEME SA, a world leader in MPEG-4/H.264 video compression technology, today announced the release of its third generation (Gen3) MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 core engine.

ATEMEs Gen3 H.264 codec, for the Kyrion series of real-time video encoders, is based on a number of ATEME patent-pending innovations enabling bandwidth efficiency gains and video quality enhancements over the previous generation of H.264 codecs.

DTV broadcasters can now offer pristine HD quality services at constant bit rates and with dense transponder capacities. IPTV operators are able to extend their customer reach for HD services thanks to bandwidth efficiency gains.

To address the growing contribution market, ATEMEs Gen3 H.264 codec includes support for the 4:2:2 chroma subsampling profile at higher bit rates. Gen3 H.264 is an efficient and higher quality alternative to legacy contribution codecs such as MPEG-2 and JPEG2000.

ATEMEs Gen3 H.264 bandwidth savings makes it possible to provide low bit rate contribution over IP networks while doubling the density of video streams over DVB-S2 links.

As ATEMEs real-time encoding products are FPGA based, existing as well as new Kyrion customers will be able to upgrade to the Gen3 core engine with no need to replace any hardware.

Our third generation core engine represents a major breakthrough in H.264 video quality and bandwidth efficiency, says Dominique Edelin, ATEMEs Chief Operating Officer. By upgrading our Kyrion encoders, we are reaffirming our commitment to providing broadcasters and operators with future-proof solutions through continual innovation.
