“With so much content available on the Internet for free, FPT is always finding ways to deliver the best quality and viewing experience for subscribers. Viewing experience in terms of video quality and latency is very important to us. We conducted a comprehensive evaluation of several solutions, but ATEME always came out on top. For instance, on one of the major sports channels content is now streamed three seconds faster due to the Kyrion encoder,” said Nguyen Hoang Linh, executive vice president, FPT Telecom.

Emmanuel Boureau, vice president of sales at ATEME, added: “Our Kyrion solution is future-proof, with a HEVC software upgrade option and pay-as-you-grow support: SD to HD to UHD, and MPEG2 to H.264 to HEVC.”

The technology selected by FPT Telecom has been designed for contribution over satellite and IP networks, with features such as front video and audio confidence monitoring, ultra-fast-boot, ultra-low latency, audio level control and ABR output.
