ATSC 2018 sponsor ATEME is a video delivery leader investing in video quality enhancements. The company is a leading member of organizations, industry committees and research groups in the forefront of standards development. In addition to actively investing in MPEG-2, H.264 and HEVC, ATEME has been working with leading ATSC groups, cable operators and set-top box (STB) vendors to introduce the High-Efficiency MPEG-2 (HE-MPEG2©) CODEC, designed to be compatible with MPEG-2 compliant decoders, including legacy STBs and digital televisions; HE-MPEG2 doesn’t require changes or upgrades on existing devices. Based on the bandwidth efficiency of HE-MPEG2 in conjunction with ATEME’s TITAN Live/Mux statistical multiplexing solutions, ATSC TV stations can operate with a 30 percent increase mux density, without compromising video quality and with an easy migration path to ATSC 3.0, HEVC or Scalable HEVC. ATEME is first solution provider to propose SHVC / HEVC for ATSC 3.0, which ATEME believes would further accelerate the transition of over-the-air broadcasting to ATSC 3.0 Next Gen services.
