SAN JOSE, Calif. — July 15, 2021 — Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced the first implementation of public cloud support for the delivery of Dolby Vision® HDR live content, driving forward the live broadcast and streaming UHD HDR revolution. Harmonic has integrated Dolby Vision into its VOS®360 Media SaaS and XOS software-based appliance to streamline UHD HDR live production, ensuring the highest possible quality of experience for video streaming services.
“UHD HDR is a quantum leap forward in picture quality, and Dolby Vision has become the standard for delivering more realistic, compelling and immersive video experiences,” said Stephane Cloirec, vice president, video appliances, at Harmonic. “Supporting Dolby Vision demonstrates our commitment to streamlining and democratizing UHD HDR live delivery, helping operators embrace the UHD HDR revolution and bring outstanding video experiences to consumers.”
With support for Dolby Vision, Harmonic’s cloud streaming SaaS and software-based solutions can reduce capex for broadcasters and streaming providers through a workflow that automates and simplifies live HDR video delivery, while providing incredible viewing experiences for consumers.
