Ateme secures big win in Egypt with NileSat

With Ateme’s solutions, NileSat hopes to take full control of its new platform, providing the opportunity to offer new satellite services.

Egypt-based satellite operator NileSat has chosen to deploy Ateme’s Titan Live platform for two of its projects.

In the first of two tender wins, Ateme Titan Live will enable contribution over IP via a new fibre link between NileSat and Egyptian Media Production City (EMPC), an information and media complex with studios and outdoor shooting areas for production companies. This architecture enables EMPC to transfer content much faster than with the previous traditional SDI networks.

Ateme’s Titan Live video headend has also been selected to enable NileSat to expand its current video processing infrastructure for the Egyptian (ENMA) channels. This allows ENMA to increase its footprint internationally.

A software-based encoding solution, Titan Live delivers high video quality at minimum bitrates with accelerated parallel processing. The implemented solution will empower NileSat to take full control of its new platform, providing the opportunity to offer new satellite services.

In addition to what has been described NileSat benefits from a flexible and transparent business and licensing model, in which licenses are inclusive of all codecs and types of output. This means NileSat gains all software capabilities, without additional costs.

Commenting on the development, Hamdy Mounir, NileSat CTO, said: “As we embarked on these projects Ateme’s offering really stood out from the competition. Its Titan Live solution is not only capable of helping us achieve our current requirements, but it will also enable us to expand our infrastructure as we continue to increase our service offering.”

Mohamed Razik Zaghlouli, Regional Sales Director, Ateme, added: “Being chosen as the unique vendor for these two projects is testimony to our innovative technology solutions and cements our status as a leader in video delivery technology. As one of the leading MENA satellite solutions providers, our work with NileSat further strengthens our position in the region and we look forward to continuing to expand our relationships in this area and globally.”
