Our encoding and multiplexing services

Designed for broadcasters looking to future-proof, improve their operational efficiencies and move from power-hungry hardware to a fully flexible and virtualised system.

With many appliance-based products going end-of-life or not supporting the latest encoding and multiplexing features, now is the time to deploy in the cloud. 

Wave goodbye to legacy hardware

A first-of-its-kind virtualised hosted system, with fully resilient geographically diverse data centres at Madley and the BT Tower. Reducing property investment, hardware installation and operating costs.

More channels. Same quality.

Increase the number of channels per Mux with no fall in picture quality. The result? The ability to provide more services using less bandwidth, reducing your costs.


Reliable, efficient, and scalable.

Virtualised end-to-end encoders running kubernetes microservices - giving you greater flexibility to tailor services, streamline inventory, and build redundancy options.

Guaranteed peace of mind

Not only is everything remotely managed – from in-life to the latest technology upgrades – your services will operate without interruption. 


Our International Media Centre provides 24/7 end-to-end system monitoring, staffed by highly specialised and experienced engineers.


Our experts will proactively detect and resolve potential system issues before they arise – allowing you to focus on what truly matters.

Why choose BT?

Harnessing cutting-edge technology

With our advanced infrastructure, we're able to provide round-the-clock monitoring with updates on picture quality, efficiencies, and cost – so you know you’re always getting the best of the best.

World-leading expertise

We have written the playbook for developing extremely complex, virtualised encoding and multiplex systems, the first time a project of this scale has been implemented. Deployed for Digital 3&4 to 28 digital terrestrial TV regions, 100+ transmitter sites, reaching 18 million UK households.

Investing for the future

Substantial investments at Madley and the BT Tower ensures it's scalable to run a multitude of co-tenanted applications, including the backend systems for our intelligent broadcast platform, Vena. Meaning you can benefit from your services already being connected.

Sustainably powered

By upgrading from power-hungry hardware to a virtualised system hosted among our data centres with Ateme’s TITAN live encoders, you can achieve a 65% reduction in video distribution energy consumption over a three-year period.
