ATEME Powers AB Groupe's First Native 4K Channel

News Image
ATEME has announced that AB Groupe, France's first independent broadcaster, has selected ATEME's TITAN Live to broadcast its first native 4K-UHD premium channel.

The channel, called Ultra Nature, has been available in France since 19 May and is dedicated to wildlife, discovery, travel and extreme sport.

TITAN Live is a high video quality, high density pure-software encoding solution designed for cable, DTH, and OTT. It can run on any commercial off-the-shelf server, in any environment, providing reduced time to market and lower operating costs. ATEME's "building block" approach provides even more flexibility as software modules can be combined as needed for any input/output, any CODEC, any resolution, from the most basic encoder to the much more complex video headend. 

Lionel Berthelot, CTO at AB Groupe, said: "We were really impressed with the collaboration and quality expertise of ATEME. Their skills matched our ambitions for Ultra Nature, our new 100% native 4K channel, which made a remarkable entrance into the high-tech world."

Christophe Deffontaines, director of sales EMEA at ATEME also said: "We are delighted to support the AB Groupe in their development strategy by providing them with our solutions and our expertise. The new channel expands our portfolio of 4K references, and demonstrates the technological excellence of our solutions and our ability to quickly deploy high quality TV channels."
