ATEME's TITAN Live solution was recently selected to power a virtual reality application available throughout the tournament. The application offered a fully immersive 180° and 360° live viewing experience to tennis fans, and was created by ATEME's partner LiveLike.

Available on iOS and Android devices, it utilised ATEME's TITAN Live solution to encode UHD signals at various bit rates in order to offer the best video quality experience on tablets and smartphones to French Open fans.

TITAN Live is a high video quality, high density software compression solution, designed for cable, DTH, OTT live delivery of SD, HD and UHD content. It is a CPU solution, that is hardware agnostic and runs on any OS: Linux, Windows and Virtual Machine. TITAN Live is based on ATEME fifth generation STREAM compression engine and delivers high video quality at minimum bitrates with accelerated parallel processing. The solution also addresses current and future requirements by addressing main screens and multi-screen applications, from low resolutions up to UHDp60.

"The French Open organizers sought to break new ground and to be a pioneer in delivering this year's tournament in Virtual Reality to fans with such scale and quality," said Fabrice Lorenceau, Co-Founder and Head of Production at LiveLike. "LiveLike is thrilled have taken a critical role in the French Open VR project in close partnership with ATEME. More importantly, fans have really loved the experience giving the app stellar ratings. The experience went on to an impressive viewership for its first VR edition of the French Open."

Claude Stoffel, EMEA Sales Director at ATEME, added: "We have been working with LiveLike for more than two years focused on how to improve user experience of Virtual Reality. We are very proud to contribute in the creation of this exciting new application developed for the tournament. With viewer demand and expectations changing so rapidly, it is truly amazing to watch a tennis match as if you were a few feet away from players, while staying comfortably seated on the sofa by combining our TITAN Live encoding technology and VR application from LiveLike we are entering the future of television."
