“After a long time of testing with all other key vendors, we decided to choose Ateme because it offered the best video quality and the highest flexibility”, said Do Van Phuc, technical director at VSTV K+. “Ateme’s platform is easy to manage, very straightforward and innovative. The chosen solution not only allows us to do what we need now (SD, HD, MPEG2, H.264) but also ensures we are investing in the future (4K, HEVC).

“The Ateme team was very professional and supportive throughout the process, especially during the crucial stages of deployment,” he added.

Ateme’s sales director Duc Long Nguyen said: “Ateme has successfully implemented several DTH deployments in Asia and we are very proud to add VSTV K+ to our growing portfolio. As the biggest DTH operator in Vietnam, VSTV K+ is focused on providing premium content to its viewers, using the most advanced tv technologies. With Ateme’s solution  VSTV K+ can now cost-effectively deliver the highest video quality across its channels.”
