HD and SD compression, stream processing and media asset management solutions with native IP support allow operators to intelligently manage workflows across their networks while maximizing operational efficiencies. Our video processing products offer unparalleled versatility, supporting a wide variety of functions including re-encoding, multiplexing, encryption, bulk scrambling/descrambling, targeted advertisement insertion, forward error correction and SFN over IP. Harmonic is also actively working with its cable customers to deliver IPTV-over-cable solutions that leverage the versatility of IP with our universal edgeQAM, integrated into a DOCSIS® 3.0/M-CMTS environment to provide a more compelling user experience while also lowering cost and complexity.
A comprehensive Harmonic infrastructure further helps cable operators to optimize their use of bandwidth by freeing up or adding spectrum to deliver more programming and provide more personalized services. In cable networks, switched digital video, network segmentation, fiber-deep HFC architectures and expansion to 1-GHz networks all help address this critical issue.
The worldwide popularity of Harmonic is relatively simple: we deliver superior-quality viewing experiences for consumers while lowering capital and operating expenses for broadcasters, service providers and OTT operators.
