ATEME Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Michel Artières, said “This strong start to the year gives us a good base to achieve our full year target of 20% revenues growth at constant currency. Moreover, our multiyear engagement model is gaining solid traction in the market and should lead to a more recurrent growth profile in the coming years.”
Innovation leadership supporting mid-term growth
At the recent NAB show in Las Vegas, ATEME once again demonstrated its innovation credentials, notably with technology demonstrations of 4K and 8K content using next generation compression standards including the Alliance for Open Media's AV1 and MPEG Group's VVC, with all types of HDR (“High Dynamic Range”) available on the market. ATEME demonstrated on the show floor a complete live and file virtualized video headend, hosted on public cloud and displayed on the booth.
ATEME also demonstrated significant enhancements in contribution and distribution solutions, including an encryption group manager, leveraging the European Broadcasting Union's (EBU) “BISS-CA” royalty-free and open specifications for Conditional Access.
On this occasion, ATEME was honored by Sinclair Broadcast Group as a key provider and partner in its next-generation broadcast nationwide buildout, in recognition of its efforts to develop the ATSC 3.0 technology, the new standard for the terrestrial digital broadcasting system in the United States and Korea.
Financial outlook confirmed
ATEME is targeting average annual revenue growth above 20% (at constant currency and perimeter) for the current and following year, while improving the product mix and gross margin and engaging in multiyear contracts with some of our largest clients in order to gradually build more visibility and predictability in our revenue profile. During this period, ATEME will contain the rise in sales & marketing and R&D investments at a lesser rate than revenues.
