VOS Cloud Features

Built for the Cloud

With support for OpenStack deployment environments, VOS Cloud lets you work the way you want to work, whether on premise or through the cloud. Harmonic APIs provide hooks into your existing operations, simplifying the ability to add —or remove — VOS Cloud services in a matter of minutes.

PURE Power

At the heart of VOS Cloud is the Harmonic PURE Compression Engine™, an advanced, software-based encoding and transcoding technology that supports SD, HD and UHD formats, and MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and HEVC codecs for broadcast and OTT multiscreen delivery. Providing superior video quality at the lowest possible bitrates, the PURE Compression Engine significantly improves efficiency and simplifies upgradability over competing encoder technologies.

Reduced CAPEX and OPEX

The broad capabilities of VOS Cloud converge broadcast and OTT media processing and delivery into a single, easy-to-use solution.
