Harmonic Addresses Broadcast TV Growth in Asia at Inter BEE 2017 With Software Innovations for UHD, Cloud and OTT
Seamless UHD contribution, playout and broadcast workflow
Delivering UHD-HDR content has never been easier thanks to Harmonic’s end-to-end solution for live and on-demand applications. Covering every step of the workflow, from UHD playout via Harmonic’s Spectrum™ X media server, contribution via the ViBE® CP9000 encoder, and broadcast distribution with the Electra™ X encoder, with decoding by RD9000 decoder, Harmonic sets the bar for efficient delivery of UHD-HDR services.
End-to-end media processing in the cloud
Harmonic’s award-winning, cloud-native VOS™ Cloud media processing application and VOS 360 software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution help operators launch broadcast and OTT services quicker than ever, reducing the launch time from weeks and months to a matter of hours. An end-to-end, cloud-native workflow will be shown with demonstrations of playout, live transcoding, time-shift TV, VOD and cloud DVR applications.
QoE for OTT rivals traditional broadcast
Today’s television viewers expect the same quality of experience (QoE) for OTT offerings as traditional broadcast, and Harmonic’s new EyeQ™ video compression optimization solution delivers. With EyeQ, broadcasters can reduce the bandwidth up to 50 percent and decrease CDN costs, distinguishing themselves from the competition with lower latency, reduced buffering and better QoE. Harmonic will demonstrate a live end-to-end low latency workflow for distribution over CDNs utilizing the next-generation Common Media Application Format (CMAF) standard.
