Almatel Kazakhstan Launches New HEVC DTH Service with Harmonic
Via the Satellite TV Platform, Kazakhstan’s Leading Pay-TV Operator is Delivering 140 Channels to Subscribers
“Alma TV was smart to launch its DTH platform using the HEVC codec, which provides a 50 percent increase in bandwidth savings compared to MPEG-4,” said Ian Graham, vice president of sales, EMEA and LATAM at Harmonic. “As pay-TV operators around the world look to launch UHD offerings, having a flexible, easily upgradeable media processor like the Electra X platform, with advanced encoding technology, will be key to their success.”
