ATEME has announced that TV Azteca, the Mexican multimedia conglomerate owned by Grupo Salinas, broadcast the football match between the Mexican national team and Paraguay on May 28th, live in UHD.The match was played in Atlanta, US and the broadcast took place via satellite and terrestrial network, in partnership with ATEME, who provided the digital compression of the signal. The UHD signal was encoded at 20 Mbps, in HEVC Main10 profile and in real time using ATEME’s TITAN solution to power satellite and terrestrial delivery.

“Innovation and highest standard of operation are the foundations for driving TV Azteca´s leadership to the next level,” said Pedro Carmona, technology director for TV Azteca. “These two foundations were fulfilled by ATEME: the first one by using a future-proof solution, with a path to next UHD formats, and the second one by having a pure software solution running on COTS hardware, which provides all the flexibility we need.”
