Harmonic Powers Live TV and VOD OTT Services for Finnish Telco DNA
A significant player in the OTT market, DNA is well positioned to capture Western Europe’s growing OTT TV and video revenues, which are predicted to reach $13.72 billion in 2020; up from the $894 million recorded in 2010 and the $6.34 billion expected in 2015, according to Digital TV Research.
DNA is using a range of Harmonic video infrastructure solutions, including Harmonic’s WFS™ file-based workflow engine, ProMedia® Carbon file-based transcoder, ProMedia Live real-time multiscreen transcoder, MediaGrid shared storage system and NMX™ Digital Service Manager. Combined, they enable the operator to quickly ingest and convert video content into a massive array of acquisition, editing, broadcast, web and mobile formats. Offering support for both live and VOD processing, with packaging and origin capabilities through ProMedia Package stream packager and ProMedia X Origin media server, Harmonic’s workflow solutions simplify the preparation and delivery of OTT multiscreen services.
“DNA is a longstanding Harmonic customer. The reason why our video infrastructure solutions are chosen time and time again by leading telco operators is because we offer unparalleled reliability and video quality, along with extensive OTT multiscreen deployment expertise,” said Ian Graham, vice president of sales, EMEA, at Harmonic. “With an integrated infrastructure solution from Harmonic, operators such as DNA can dramatically extend their reach, providing customers with more channels and better quality content on an ever-growing number of screens.”
