ATEME, the provider of video delivery solutions for broadcast, cable TV, DTH, IPTV and OTT, has announced that Indian multi-system operator DL Gtpl Digital TV & Broadband Services (DL Gtpl) has chosen ATEME’s TITAN headend solution to upgrade its cable-TV platform.
Based in in Surat City, DL GTPL provides Digital Cable TV and broadband services throughout the western Indian state of Gujarat, as well as the neighbouring states of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.
ATEME’s TITAN solution enables DL Gtpl to improve its subscribers’ viewing experiences while reducing operational costs, by ensuring exceptional video quality at very low bitrates. It also makes operations easier for both DL Gtpl and its operators thanks to its full software approach, which simplifies deployments and operations: profile reconfigurations, automatic switchovers, and fast updates become much easier. And it reduces CAPEX as it runs on any COTS or virtualised server.
Mr Manish Savani, Managing Director, DL Gtpl , commented: “We wanted a headend that would not only provide outstanding video quality, but that could also expand on the range of services we can offer. ATEME’s TITAN headend met all these criteria. Thanks to the flexibility and support of ATEME’s local team we set up the new head-end quickly and smoothly. As a result, we are now ready to deliver exceptional video quality, and are also extending our value-added services with hybrid cable and OTT services for our operators and subscribers. I’m excited to bring the future of entertainment to the Indian market.”
Gautier Vandomme, VP Sales – APAC, ATEME, added: “The Indian industry is rising up to the challenge of changing viewer expectations. It’s an exciting time for the industry and we are delighted to have this opportunity to work with DL Gtpl to ease their operations, save them bandwidth and enable them to provide viewers across the region with an outstanding video quality. Viewers in India have such a rich variety of content to choose from; it is a great satisfaction to be helping them view this content in the best quality.”
