ATEME, a leading video delivery solution for broadcast, IPTV and OTT, has been awarded a grant from i-Nov Innovation Contest for its IA4SEC project, featuring innovations in artificial intelligence (AI) video delivery technologies. The contest was held by Bpifrance, an investment bank based in France and a programme set up by the French government to finance innovative and promising investments in the country.
In today’s changing landscape, the video industry is facing increased complexity of video payload standards such as HEVC, AV1, VVC / H.266 and EVC / MPEG-5 part 1. ATEME’s technology aims to solve the pain points by offering clients a path to the latest video techniques by leveraging AI.
ATEME has proposed several levels of innovation in AI for video delivery in the IA4SEC project including improvements in core encoding to enable bitrate reduction, Content Adaptive Encoding for higher video quality, and elastic encoding orchestration to optimise media supply chain and cloud usage. ATEME also has outlined how AI can help in reducing latency for an enhanced OTT viewing experience.
Mickael Raulet, VP Innovation, ATEME, commented: “We are very proud to have been awarded a grant for the IA4SEC project. It highlights the value of our innovation teams and our expertise in video coding, which we have developed over time to help our customers transform their video delivery services. As a result, end-users will receive better compressed, higher quality video with an overall improved experience.”
