Paris – Transcoding specialist ATEME has won its first Middle East customer for its TITAN platform, in a deployment by content aggregator Intigral for both IPTV and OTT services in Saudi Arabia. Intigral chose ATEME’s TITAN carrier grade transcoding solution because of its support for both file-based and adaptive streaming video, as well as the ability to deliver video content at the highest possible quality to multiple screens. Intigral is a joint venture between Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and All Asia Networks (ASTRO), meeting the content delivery needs of operators in the Middle East.

Intigral first deployed ATEME’s file transcoding software early this year, for delivering VOD to STC’s IPTV customers in Saudi Arabia, but has now replaced that with TITAN to support OTT streaming as well.
