Telecom Argentina Sends Soccer Around the Word with ATEME’s Kyrion
ATEME’s Kyrion contribution solution was chosen by Telecom Argentina to bring the premium soccer event held this summer in Argentina to millions of viewers in America and Europe. The service operator deployed CM4101 encoders and DR8400 decoders supporting MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 up to 4:2:2 10-bit compression, and HD resolution up to 1080p60.
“We wanted to offer our Clients – Broadcasters, Satcasters and other holders of a license for distribution to consumers – the best possible picture quality, while investing in future proof technology,” says Alfredo Musitani, Product Manager, Video Broadcasting and Special Services at Telecom Argentina. “Throughout the field trials, ATEME and their local integrator LADE Profesional provided great support to our operations team.”
Raul Rivera, Director of Sales for Latin America, at ATEME commented: “This is the first time high definition MPEG-4 4:2:2 10-bit technology is embraced in the region for premium sports content transmission; for sure more projects will follow. We were very happy to team with Telecom Argentina and LADE Professional for this milestone deployment.”
