Ra’anana, Israel – NovelSat, a world leader in satellite transmission technology, and ATEME, a global leader in video compression solutions, have announced an agreement to pair the ATEME Kyrion high-quality broadcast video encoder with the NovelSat NS1000 Satellite Modulator. This technology partnership ensures that satellite broadcasting customers deliver the highest quality live and recorded video in the industry.
The innovative NovelSat NS1000 Satellite Modulator is designed for high demand satellite transmission. While supporting all satellite transmission standards, including DVB-S, DBV-S2 and DVB-S2X, it is the only system that also offers the NovelSat NS4 waveform, which delivers up to 45% higher spectral efficiency compared with DVB-S2.
Based on the ATEME fifth Generation STREAM compression engine, the Kyrion encoder provides the best baseband video quality at minimum bitrates. This solution has been designed for contribution over satellite and IP networks, with added value features such as ultra-fast-boot, ultra-low latency, and ABR output. The ATEME Kyrion offers a software upgradable HEVC encoding option to support UHD video streaming as well as legacy MPEG2 to H264 compressions.
“When two great technologies work together smoothly, they tend to strengthen one another,” said Yossi Aloni, CMO of ATEME. “This new partnership will offer a new level of quality for both ATEME and NovelSat customers.”
NovelSat and ATEME will be showing their satellite transmission technologies at IBC 2016, at the RAI Amsterdam.
