Australian multi-venue and multi-channel race and sport broadcasting Sky Racing has revealed it has successfully deployed ATEME video compression solutions facilitating a complete HD refresh and expansion of its DTH services.

ATEME SkyRacingIn the deployment, ATEME worked with its Australian and New Zealand distributor Amber Technology to design and deploy the Sky Racing system based one on Kyrion encoders. This it said enabled Sky Racing to take advantage of the superior video quality contribution of video content to and from horse racing venues to their production facilities at what it claimed was ‘ultra-low’ latency.

Sky Racing has also opted for a MPEG-2, H.264 head-end for its DTH distribution services. Utilising ATEME’s software-based TITAN Live solution, Sky Racing now distributes SD and HD video statistically multiplexed, and generate all profiles and protocols required for delivery in primary and redundant services.

“Racing and sports content are of the most difficult to compress, especially when you need to preserve the picture quality while minimising latency,” explained said Dennis Dovale, technology manager (media) at Sky Racing. “ATEME provided us with an ideal solution for distribution of live racing, sports content including EPL and European league football and low-bitrate wagering data distribution with superior video quality, with shared bandwidth to deliver highest quality at lowest cost of delivery. We are now equipped with best-in-class video technology, lowest latency in market and unparalleled on-the-ground support.”
