ATEME has announced that Australia's Sky Racing has deployed video compression solutions facilitating a complete HD refresh and expansion of DTH services.

ATEME worked with their Australia and New Zealand distributor Amber Technology to design and deploy the Sky Racing system utilising the industry-leading Kyrion encoders. This enabled Sky Racing to take advantage of the superior video quality contribution of video content to and from horse racing venues to their production facilities at ultra-low latency. In addition, Sky Racing has also opted for a MPEG-2, H.264 headend for their DTH distribution services. Utilising ATEME's software-based TITAN Live solution, Sky Racing now distribute SD and HD video statistically multiplexed, and generate all profiles and protocols required for delivery in primary and redundant services.

In addition to superior video quality allowing Sky Racing to realise satellite bandwidth savings, ATEME’s solutions offer Sky Racing the following benefits:
• Flexible and complete offer for seamless, cost-effective redundancy models
• Delivery of the best possible video quality at low latency, enabling a premium viewing experience on any screen
• Cost reduction through simplified integration in customer ecosystem and applications
• Direct access to a dedicated and growing local engineering team

Amber Technology Managing Director Peter Amos said: "ATEME represents a significant advancement in the way broadcast media is delivered to a rapidly changing market. The Sky Racing solution is an exciting example of what is possible with ATEME."
