SAN JOSE, Calif. — Jul. 11, 2023 — Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) and DigiCAP (KOSDAQ: 197140) today announced they are offering a new solution for broadcasters that combines statistical multiplexing technology on Harmonic’s XOS advanced media processor with DigiCAP’s DigiCaster ATSC 3.0 headend. The joint solution significantly improves video quality and bandwidth efficiency, streamlining the delivery of ATSC 3.0 services and enhancing NEXTGEN TV experiences.
“As ATSC 3.0 deployments accelerate across the U.S., we’re on a mission to enable more efficient NEXTGEN TV delivery and superior viewing experiences,” said Jing Zhou, director of broadcast solutions at Harmonic. “Our collaboration with DigiCAP demonstrates how Harmonic is leading the charge for ATSC 3.0 innovation and showcases our continued commitment to the broadcast community.”
The new solution enables Harmonic’s XOS media processor to receive real-time feedback from DigiCAP’s DigiCaster. By creating an interactive connection between the DigiCaster packaging, signaling and scheduling systems, the solution allows broadcasters to dynamically fine-tune statmux bit rate allocations based on available bandwidth within the ATSC 3.0 physical layer pipes. The advanced solution supports both real-time and non-real-time data transmissions.
“The Harmonic-DigiCAP collaboration provides broadcasters with a solution to utilize the ATSC 3.0 spectrum much more efficiently,” said Sang Jin Yoon, senior vice president of business development at DigiCAP. “DigiCAP products are deployed in ATSC 3.0-enabled stations throughout the United States, and this new solution will fuel even more NEXTGEN TV deployments.”
