Shaping the Mobile Delivery Landscape
With predictions that 80 percent of mobile traffic will be video in two years, and Strategy Analytics reporting that worldwide revenue from mobile video will reach $25 billion by 2021, Harmonic will show how it’s shaping the mobile delivery landscape at IBC2017:
- Harmonic’s EyeQ video compression optimization solution will be shown in the context of enabling operators to deliver a better QoE to end-users over constrained 3G, 4G and 5G mobile networks, leveraging EyeQ™ technology advancements and new packaging technology. During the demo, HD video will be delivered using minimal bandwidth (i.e., sub-500kbps) on a smartphone.
- 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, highlighting how operators can reduce the delay for OTT viewers to a level that is similar to traditional broadcast.
- Harmonic and its ecosystem partners will present a 360-degree virtual reality (VR) viewing experience, featuring stunning native UHD VR images, to IBC2017 attendees on mobile-based head-mounted displays.
