Digital Service Manager
The definitive video network management solution
Harmonic’s NMX™ Digital Service Manager is the definitive video network management solution, encompassing a powerful set of tools for monitoring and managing Harmonic compressed digital video and audio systems. Available for both traditional hardware-based infrastructures and next-generation, virtualized environments, NMX offers a simple and intuitive interface for creating and modifying channel lineups. The system allows operators to run their technical infrastructure in a way that parallels their business — as a series of revenue-generating workflows rather than as a set of discrete hardware components.
- Centralized management of geographically distributed systems
- Monitor and control traditional hardware-based and virtualized video infrastructures
- “Input to output” GUI and functionality
- Template and wizard-based system setup
- Scalable to any size system
Learn how Harmonic powers operations at nowTV, including how they use NMX video network management.
NMX is highly scalable and extensible, growing in tandem with the environment it supports. The client/server architecture supports both the centralized management of even the most geographically distributed environments, as well as the remote management of a centralized environment, all using standard TCP/IP LAN/WAN technologies.
The use of standards-based interfaces enables NMX to interconnect with other subsystems, including Conditional Access, automation and scheduling. As the managed environment grows in scope and scale, NMX can distribute its processes across multiple PC platforms, as necessary, providing inexpensive raw processing power.
Template- and Wizard-Based System Setup
Adding, reconfiguring or removing services or equipment is fast, easy and error-free. Templating, wizards, consolidated data views and powerful cut-and-paste functions are available for both service and system modifications.
Easy Lineup Changes
With the addition of Harmonic any-to-any technology, NMX allows users to easily modify and deploy new channel lineups on the fly with minimal disruption. A new three-panel layout affords the operator an easier overview into their service paths through the network elements.
NMX provides multi-level security, ensuring full control of operational privileges. In addition, a comprehensive audit trail and consolidated alarm log pinpoint hardware or operational problems.
