Ateme and Enensys upgrade the infrastructure of the Italian Rai Way to broadcast in DVB-T2 standard

Ateme and Enensys have recently combined their expertise in video distribution for Rai Way, the operator of the RAI television network, to initiate the project whose objective is the transition to the DVB-T2 standard.

DVB-T2 allows broadcasters to distribute HD content. The standard also provides more efficient and resilient signals, while freeing up the 700MHz terrestrial frequency for 5G mobile broadband.

The combined solution, offered by a local partner, won the tender and the project started in 2021. Both companies proposed a competitive solution with a reduced Total Cost of Ownership.

The integration includes Ateme’s Titan software-based live video compression solution. Enensys provided the Seamless IP & ASI switches (ASIIPGuard) and DVB-T/T2 network gateways (SmartGate T/T2), enabling SFN transmission (Single Frequency Network).

The transition was completed within the March 8, 2022 national conversion deadline.

“Viewers want higher-quality experiences and stronger emotions from their video entertainment,” commented Carlo Romagnoli, Sales Director Southern Europe from Ateme. “The move to DVB-T2 satisfies this need by facilitating the distribution of 4K content, as well as providing advanced features such as High Dynamic Range, High Frame Rate, Wide Color Gamut and Next Generation Audio to enhance the viewing experience. We are delighted to have been able to help Rai Way in this transition”

“We are proud to have played a key role in this exciting project of national importance”, said Cyprien Galesne, Sales Manager Southern Europe at ENENSYS. “Our synergistic partnership with Ateme on digital media distribution projects continues from strength to strength, offering flexible solutions to complex challenges.”
