Ateme has reported that its content delivery network (CDN) customers witnessed peak traffic increase by an average of 116% during the 2022 FIFA World Cup, as millions of fans watched the action from Qatar, from online and over-the-top (OTT) mediums.
According to Ateme, dozens of rights holders across the globe chose them to stream the World Cup games to billions of viewers with OTT low-latency 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) streams and audio surround, offering an enhanced viewing experience through increased Quality of Experience (QoE).
The ability to absorb consumption peaks through an elastic CDN added to the success of right holders delivering content to viewers, Ateme added.
Rémi Beaudouin, Chief Strategy Officer, Ateme, said, “As the only end-to-end solution provider covering the full video delivery offering, from acquisition to CDN, we are well placed to support this.
“I am thrilled that we have accomplished this QoE leap for fans worldwide, and am even more excited about what’s coming next, as Ateme looks to 2023 and beyond — augmented reality (AR) and the metaverse, to make viewers feel as if they are right there on the field where the action is.”
