Support for OpenStack™ and Amazon Web Services™ (AWS) deployment environments enable system access from anywhere in the world with an internet connection and let you work the way you want, whether on premise or through private or public clouds.

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. Users can also employ EyeQ™ real-time video optimization, Harmonic’s enhancement for PURE Compression which delivers bandwidth savings of up to 50% while ensuring a pristine viewing experience on any device.

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. Function integration built into the application reduces the number of devices required to build out a broadcast transmission chain, saving on both capital and operating expenditures and delivering exceptionally low total cost of ownership (TCO).

With VOS Cloud’s full complement of embedded workflow features, adding a new video channel to your lineup is straightforward and requires just a few steps from the operator. There’s no need to choose the target: VOS Cloud will automatically deploy and load balance compute resources based on a node’s resource availability.
