Harmonic Ups the Innovation Factor at Cable Tech Show 2017 With Software Transformations in OTT, Cloud and UHD
With competition fierce in the pay-TV industry, today’s cable operators need to launch new services and features faster than ever. Harmonic’s award-winning, cloud-native VOS™ Cloud media processing application and VOS 360 software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution are one of the quickest ways to deploy broadcast and OTT services, decreasing the launch time from weeks and months to a matter of hours. An end-to-end cloud-native workflow will be shown with demonstrations of playout, live transcoding, time-shift TV, VOD and cloud DVR applications.
QoE reaches a new level for OTT
To stay competitive, cable operators must deliver an exceptional quality of experience (QoE) for OTT offerings. Harmonic’s new EyeQ™ video compression optimization solution reduces bandwidth up to 50 percent while maintaining superior video quality, making it a game-changer for the industry to reduce OPEX spending on CDN delivery. Featuring one-of-a-kind analytics technology, the EyeQ solution ensures an improved QoE for OTT services compared with traditional CBR approaches.
Delivering UHD-HDR content has never been easier thanks to Harmonic’s end-to-end solution for live and on-demand applications. Harmonic is one of the only video infrastructure providers with a complete playout and delivery workflow for UHD-HDR.
