One of the largest telecommunication companies operating in the Baltics, Telia Estonia, has selected the Titan solution from video delivery solutions provider ATEME to compress and package its next generation over-the-top offering.

ATEME 6dec2018The project aims to extend the reach of HD services throughout Estonia and introduces new packaging formats. With Titan, Telia Estonia can enhance its OTT offering with a number of differing variants based on tiering and enabling it to extend the reach of its HD profiles to the most remote households and improve quality of service. For example, for a premium video experience: ATEME’s Stream algorithms can maintain content fidelity at optimal bitrate.

The software-based Titan encoder can run on any COTS or virtualised server, enabling Telia Estonia to deploy high quality live channels. With the integrated E3 CPU-GPU processing capabilities of the VCA boards, titan delivers up to 60 full HD profiles per RU, reducing power consumption to a few watts per channel, while maintaining high encoding fidelity. In addition, when used with the AMS service-oriented and scalable ATEME management system, Titan can simplify deployment and operations.

“When looking to expand our existing OTT channels offering, the key requirement was compression efficiency, backup requirements and solution simplicity. We can survive complete loss of one site and have automatic switchover to a backup site without customers even noticing,” explained Oliver Mändla, broadcast solutions team leader at Telia Estonia. “The choice of ATEME’s solution not only meets all our technical and cost related requirements but also provides intuitive and predictive operations, a committed roadmap and a futureproof all-inclusive engagement model.”
