French 4K Channel with Titan Compression
August 23, 2016
French sports channel MCS TV is to launch a UHD service using ATEME’s Titan compression solution. Initially, the channel will launch in France on cable and optical fibre networks, before being exported abroad.
“We choose Titan File for the transcoding of our 4K content in HEVC for our play-out server and Titan 4K for the transmission of our live events, based on the products’ degree of maturity and reliability and its ability to evolve to suit future UHD formats,” said Mickael Czmara, CTO, MCS TV. “Using pure software solutions running on COTS HW provides the flexibility we need, and will also lead to additional financial and operational efficiencies across this area of our business.
Claude Stoffel, director of sales at ATEME: “Since Titan is a future-proof solution, with a path to 4K-UHD HEVC, HDR and BT.2020 colour space, it has been largely approved, adopted and deployed by various tier 1 broadcasters and service providers all around the world.”
