Ateme enables Solbox to build a private VOD transcoding farm in the cloud

Korean CDN provider benefits from Ateme’s cloud-based transcoding solution and flexible business model

Paris(29 Mar 2022)

PARIS, 29 March 2022 – Ateme, the leader in video delivery solutions for broadcast, cable TV, DTH, IPTV and OTT, today announces that it has enabled Solbox, the market leader in CDN and cloud computing solutions in Korea, to build a private VOD transcoding farm in the cloud servicing OTT service providers.

The Korean CDN provider used Ateme’s cloud-native, microservices-based TITAN File transcoding solution to transcode video files in a flexible and cost-effective way, with smart allocation of cloud computing resources on an as-needed basis.

This flexibility allows Solbox to meet its OPEX requirements while achieving outstanding video quality. Indeed, Solbox is able to facilitate HD & UHD quality content for its OTT customers – ultimately benefiting viewers, while also allowing them to watch their favorite shows from any location.

“Ateme’s flexible solution was unmatched compared to other vendors’” said SeungHwan Yu, Managing Director at Solbox. “Ateme’s Titan File MS met every one of our business and technical requirements, including the ability to achieve optimum video quality of H.264 HD and HEVC UHD, an API base workflow that made integration easy, and an OPEX model to scale as we grow. We now have a top-notch solution in place.”

“Viewers in the region are increasingly demanding HD/UHD content that they can view on any device,” said Boyang Ang, Korea Country Manager at Ateme. “Meanwhile, organizations are balancing these evolving viewer requirements with the need to move to the cloud. We’re delighted that our flexible solutions have helped Solbox achieve both these objectives, with deployment taking place only six months after our initial meeting.”
