Twentieth Century Fox prepares for UHD home viewing

French broadcast tech vendor ATEME and Twentieth Century Fox have enhanced development of the TITAN Software Transcoder.

The new technology has been developed to enable distribution of the first ever Ultra HD with High Dynamic Range movies for home viewing.

TITAN is multi-codec and format video transcoding software for Live, OTT and File mezzanine, VOD, Post-Production, Playout and Archive applications.

“Twentieth Century Fox has worked closely with ATEME to fine-tune the TITAN transcoder and add custom features,” sayas Hanno Basse, chief technology officer of Twentieth Century Fox, and President of the UHD Alliance. “As the specifications and standards evolve, ATEME’s flexibility in modifying and implementing new features, combined with TITAN’s high video quality, enabled Fox to be the first to market with a new viewing experience.”
