CBC chooses Ateme for HD services
ANGA exhibitor Ateme (Stand L15) has been chosen by RTL-owned German TV production and broadcast provider CBC to supply encoding and decoding equipment for relaying live HD coverage of sports events such as car racing back to its playout centre in Cologne.
The Ateme codecs will be deployed on location for backhauling the dedicated feed over terrestrial IP fiber links at full HD quality.
The Ateme equipment will be used for CBC’s migration to MPEG-4 backhaul. Its Kyrion encoders will be employed to deliver HD pictures at a relatively low 15Mbps bitrate.
