Our new virtualised headend has the ability to onboard a new channel in minutes, enabling it to match consumer technology demands by rapidly adding popular new programming, offering dedicated channels for big events, upgrading channels to 4K and adding new compression standards to support the latest TV-watching device.”

“We are very proud to be Swisscom’s trusted partners and support them in building a virtualised video headend to dynamically adjust channel line-ups very quickly,” added Claude Stoffel ATEME EMEA director.
