ATSC 2020 sponsor ATEME is the video delivery leader committed to continuous investment in video quality enhancements. The company is in the forefront of standards development through involvement in a number of organizations, industry committees and research groups. In addition to actively investing in VVC, EVC, AV1, MPEG-2, H.264 and HEVC, ATEME has been working with ATSC groups, cable operators and STB vendors to introduce a High-Efficiency MPEG-2 (HE-MPEG2) CODEC. HE-MPEG2 is compatible with MPEG-2 compliant decoders, including legacy STBs and digital televisions; it does not require any change nor upgrade on existing devices. Based on the bandwidth efficiency of HE-MPEG2 in conjunction with ATEME’s TITAN Live/Mux statistical multiplexing solutions, ATSC stations can operate with a 30 percent increase in mux density, without compromising video quality and with an easy migration path to ATSC3.0, HEVC or SHVC (Scalable HEVC). Today, ATEME supports SHVC / HEVC for ATSC3.0 to help accelerate the transition of the over-the-air delivery to ATSC 3.0 NEXTGEN TV services.
