VOS 360: A Cloud Media Processing Service
VOS™ 360 is a dedicated end-to-end video cloud service built exclusively for media professionals. The secure, carrier-grade cloud infrastructure makes it easy to prepare and deliver revenue-generating live, time-shift, cloud DVR and VOD streaming services directly to consumer devices in a matter of hours instead of months. By removing the need to build out a physical plant to launch your service, and by offering pay-as-you-go pricing, VOS 360 dramatically alters the economics of OTT content delivery.
We’re hearing a lot about its applications for media processing, but is a cloud-based service ready for prime time? Can it really help you launch a new broadcast-quality live streaming channel in a matter of hours, at a fraction of the cost of building out a new on-premise data center? With Harmonic’s new VOS 360, the answer is definitely yes. We’ll find out why in this edition of VidTech InFocus.
