Revolutionizing Video Compression: A Look at Global Broadcasting and Telecommunication Innovations?

Key Takeaways:

  • Founded in 1991, ATEME has been on the forefront of video compression and delivery solutions for nearly 30 years.
  • ATEME was first to the market with several advances in video delivery, including a 10bit 422 solution and production-ready HEVC & HDR.
  • The company’s recent focus on establishing a video datacenter underscores its commitment to evolving with advances in technology and service demand.
  • With 200 employees across 14 countries, ATEME’s global presence and expert team continue to grow.

As boolean zeroes and ones continue to replace analogue waves and broadcast signals, videos still make up much of the content being transported across global networks. From streaming services to live TV, consumers are watching more video than ever – and enterprises are scrambling to accommodate demand. Enter ATEME. Headquartered in Vélizy, Ile-de-France, this French startup was founded with a vision to change the way we deliver video. Their cutting-edge solutions for live content delivery and Video-On-Demand (VOD) have set the industry standard, globalizing their reach and firmly planting their stake in the telecommunication industry.

Since their formation in 1991, ATEME has consistently been ahead of the game. They introduced a complete video delivery solution early on, then revolutionized it with the first 10-bit 422 solution. Advancements continued with the first production-ready High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) solutions, pointing to ATEME’s dedication to superior video quality and efficiency.

What differentiates ATEME in the bustling startup scene though, is more than their technological advancements. Partnering with leaders like Microsoft, Intel, and Apple has allowed ATEME to tap into resources and expertise that much of their competition cannot access, thus leapfrogging ahead in terms of innovation. Moreover, ATEME’s bold step in joining the Alliance for Open Media exhibits a commitment to developing future-proof and universal video codecs, a cause toward which several leading tech companies are now working.

Furthermore, ATEME’s aggressive global expansion is another feather in its cap. Present in 14 countries with a staff of 200, ATEME’s reach and resources are growing continuously. Their year-on-year growth in 2016 reached a solid 31% with revenues of €37.5 million, quite an achievement for a company whose offerings are so specialized. But perhaps their most impressive credential is being responsible for standardizing the HEVC at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in 2013, illustrating their influential role in the industry.

Looking forward, ATEME seems set to continue driving innovation in video delivery. Their recent push to introduce the first true Network Function Virtualization (NFV) software solution highlights their intention to lead in the transition to video datacenters. The vision is clear: with increasing digitization and Video-on-Demand popularity, the future belongs to efficient, high-quality video delivery. Indeed, companies like ATEME are not just keeping up with the digital revolution, they are driving it; as they continue to unfold the future of technology, the ripple effects are changing broadcasting and telecommunications.
