ATEME Contribution Solutions feature high-fidelity encoding and decoding of video and audio, tailored for Digital Satellite News Gathering organizations, Sports Television Networks, leading broadcasters and Services Providers. To connect trucks, stadiums, venues and production facilities through open or private networks, over fiber or satellite links, ATEME Contribution solutions combine reliability, ease of use and the highest bandwidth efficiency. 

With the unstoppable need for High Definition and always better video experience, the bandwidth constraints are increasing for Television Professionals. The Contribution market is not an exception: Operators have to transition from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 technology to transport live content over limited-bandwidth Satellite and IP networks. Achieving the highest fidelity to the original source (video quality, lip synch), low latency, total interoperability, all while minimizing costs, such are the usual challenges for ATEME’s Contribution clients.

ATEME Contribution offering features

distribution atemeATEME’s Distribution solutions address Video Head-End requirements of Pay-TV providers who operate Cable, Satellite, or IPTV networks. It also fits the needs of Broadcasters that distribute their channels directly via Digital Terrestrial Television or operate a primary distribution network for their affiliates.
TV providers are facing an increasing number of challenges that could be summed up as “newer, bigger, better, cheaper”. The transition to digital TV is indeed not yet entirely complete and some analog services remain in operation. Further to the adoption of even wider TV screens, end-users set high expectations on HD channels and overall better quality. As a result, Video payloads keep increasing while networks are still bandwidth-constrained. Finally, these digital revolutions must be turned into budget realities and made compatible with lower Capital and Operational Expenditures.
