SAN JOSE, Calif. — July 26, 2022 — Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced that satellite operator HISPASAT Peru is using Harmonic’s cloud-native platform to power white-label streaming and robust direct-to-home (DTH) broadcast services. Harmonic’s VOS®-based solution streamlines media processing, delivery and maintenance, enabling the operator to launch new channels quickly, with exceptional reliability.
