ATEME will launch the KyrionTM CM5000 encoder for broadcast distribution at at IBC. Targeted at Digital Satellite News Gathering operators, The Kyrion CM5000 Encoder is available in three main configurations: Single channel, single channel with built in satellite modulator, or dual channel.
“We have developed this new model with a single purpose: Placing the operator at the heart of the design process,” says Rémi Beaudouin, Director of Product Marketing at ATEME. “This translates in a long list of new features and enhancements. The CM5000 can be distinguished by its very comprehensive front panel – which includes video monitoring – the ergonomics of its user interface, and a lot of details, specific to truck or flight-case operation, such as shortcuts to reduce the set-up time.
“The CM5000 weighs less, consumes less power, boots faster and operates more silently than our other contribution models,” he continues. “Yet it is definitely a Kyrion, leveraging our unique FPGA encoding core and ready to receive our latest firmware for video quality enhancements and encoding delay optimization.”
Ateme will also exhibit a combination of the Kyrion distribution MPEG-2/MPEG-4 encoders with the SR1000 rate allocator, ideal for terrestrial and satellite broadcasters that need to squeeze more channels in a mux without compromising video quality
The company will also demonstrate TITAN compression performance using EAVC4 – ATEME’s latest software encoding core – in comparison with market alternatives.
Finally, Ateme will demonstrate HEVC encoding, the upcoming compression standard, on one of the very first 4K TV displays commercially available.
