ATEME, the leader in video delivery solutions for Broadcast, Cable TV, DTH, IPTV and OTT, today announced that it has provided Kyrion DR5000 Integrated Receiver Decoders(IRDs) to Pacific Cooperation Broadcasting Limited (PCBL), a New Zealand Government initiative that supports Pacific free-to-air broadcasters through the delivery of New Zealand-originated content for rebroadcast, and the provision of training to encourage the production of local content.
PCBL opted for 52 DR5000 IRDs for its easy setup; fast signal lock; and industry leading RF robustness. A future-proof solution, the ATEME IRDs provide support for HEVC, in addition to 10-bit 4:2:2, SD, HD, UHD, MPEG2 and H264 to be installed into the 25 downlink locations. The Kyrion solution provides PCBL and its regional partners - which covers approximately 20% of the Earth’s surface - with unmatched reliability and video quality.
Professionalism, ease of use, and reliability both in terms of the product itself and ATEME’s ability to deliver according to the project’s tight schedule were key factors in PCBL’s decision making. ATEME is recognised worldwide as a trusted long-term partner who can assist customers like PCBL in the implementation of its current and future vision.
