ATEME, the provider of video delivery solutions for broadcast, cable TV, DTH, IPTV and OTT, has announced that Audio Visual Global JSC (AVG), a company in the Vietnam region specialised in television broadcasting, services and multimedia, has chosen to implement its TITAN transcoders to create a converged headend and deliver high-quality video services.
AVG is the first and only private company with a television broadcasting transmission license in Vietnam, and has the ability to transmit on DTH, DTT and OTT platforms. The new single converged headend enabled by the ATEME TITAN transcoders allows for simplified and unified management across AVG’s multiple streams. The ATEME TITAN encoders also enable high-density software compression for AVG.
AVG Deputy General Director, Dr. Nguyen Cong Du, commented, “Because we transmit on three different streams – DTH, DTT and OTT – ATEME’s converged headend is especially appealing. It enables us to unify management over all streams with a single platform. This makes everything simpler, allowing us to optimize all processing functions, and of course it also reduces our capital expenditure. We are pleased with the platform and also find it very handy to have a local engineer from ATEME to help with technical issues.”
ATEME Sales Director, Nguyen Duc Long, also added, “We’re delighted to be working with a significant multi-player operator in Vietnam. As elsewhere, viewers in Vietnam want convenience and choice in TV viewing, and our collaboration with AVG ensures that the organisation can meet these requirements by delivering on any screen, while also simplifying its internal operations.”
