ATEME recently announced that Engineer Service – Ukraine service provider to the broadcast industry – has chosen its Kyrion line of contribution encoders and decoders, which has been certified by the European Broadcast Union (EBU) and deployed broadly around the world.
Kyrion encoders enable the global delivery of high-quality SD, HD and UHD sports and news broadcasting, regardless of location.
Empowering major news and sports coverage – Based in Kiev, Ukraine, Engineer Service operates and rents a fleet of outside broadcast vans and Satellite News Gathering (SNG) vehicles that regularly cross country borders. Since upgrading its fleet, the company has covered more than 15 major news and sporting events, including the Ukraine presidential and parliamentary elections and all Ukraine-based soccer games of the UEFA Champions League and Europa League.
High-performance solution – The Kyrion CM5000 modular encoder is ATEME’s high-performance contribution and distribution encoder, offering interoperability, reliability and low delay. The Kyrion CM5000 supports up to 4:2:2 10-bit, the highest-quality format available today and the default for premium sports transmissions.
Internationally compliant – Many of Engineer Service’s international customers are EBU member broadcasters. Key decision factors for selecting Kyrion encoders, therefore, included the fact that ATEME’s products are EBU compliant—critical for this market—and aligned with international requirements.
