Dimetis and Ateme announce strategic partnership
Dimetis and Ateme have integrated the former’s operations support system (OSS) solutions with the latter’s video compression products, a combination that could help video service providers manage the transition from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 video.
The two companies believe the combined solution will be of special interest to companies transmitting live content, for example sports broadcasters (such as ESPN, ITV, Eurosport, Telemundo and Univision).
The integration of the Dimetis BOSS Link Manager with the Ateme high-fidelity encoding/decoding platform creates a low-latency, high definition solution for broadcast content.
Michel Artières, CEO of Ateme, said, “By combining Dimetis’ unique software solution with Ateme’s platform, we are able to provide network operators with the tools they need to transport live content where and when broadcasters need it.”
