Turnkey, Managed Service for Skinny TV Bundles Becomes Easy to Launch
Harmonic is offering a completely new, end-to-end turnkey service that makes it easy for tier 2 and 3 cable and telco operators to launch their own OTT multiscreen service. The hosted and managed white-label TV service will be branded for every customer, and supports retail platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, as well as iOS and Android devices. Live TV, time-shift, VOD and nPVR capabilities are available and delivered in pristine video quality, powered by Harmonic’s VOS 360 cloud service, ensuring a unified user experience on any device. Cable and telco operators can now rapidly and cost-effectively launch skinny bundles, or a full lineup, over their broadband network.
OTT QoE Reaches New Heights
OTT quality of experience (QoE) is reaching new heights thanks to Harmonic innovations. Utilizing one-of-a-kind analytics technology, Harmonic’s EyeQ™ content-aware video compression solution reduces bandwidth up to 50 percent while maintaining superior video quality, making it a game-changer for OTT delivery. Harmonic’s OTT solution helps operators in the cable market distinguish themselves from the competition with lower latency, reduced buffering and better QoE, all critical today for video services delivered in the home via WiFi and outside the home on secondary devices such as smartphones. This is achieved by leveraging Harmonic’s cloud, Docker or appliance-based solutions.
