ATEME Powers the First UHD VR Experience for Super Bowl LI
For this major event, six Ultra HD cameras placed in strategic locations are used for a complete immersion in the action. ATEME plays a major role in this technological first, as each camera is streamed in OTT using TITAN, ATEME’s software-based encoder-transcoder. Supporting any codec, any resolution up to UHD, TITAN delivers the highest video quality at minimum bitrates, which reduces the high bandwidth necessary to provide the service to the consumer home.
“We have worked very closely with ATEME for many years. The scalability and bandwidth efficiency of TITAN Live and TITAN File matches our VR broadcast specificities as well as our customer’s requirements”, said Fabrice Lorenceau, founder and LiveLike head of production. “On top of that, they provide a pristine video quality, which is crucial to get the best user experience”.
Michel Artières, CEO of ATEME: “We’re proud to participate in VR development, and make VR streaming delivery become a reality. The challenge here was to lower the bitrate at its maximum to reach the wider possible audience, while maintaining high video quality.”
