Cloud-Native Media Processing

Incredible Video Quality, Dramatically Simplified Cloud-Based Operations

Service providers and media professionals are looking to the cloud for all types of applications. With VOS™ Cloud, Harmonic offers a comprehensive software application that transforms traditional video preparation and delivery architectures into a fully integrated set of cloud-native functions, accelerating time to market for new broadcast and OTT services. VOS 360 provides these same capabilities through a software-as-a-service solution maintained and monitored by Harmonic.

Launch Fast, Run Lean

Unifying the entire media processing chain, from ingest through delivery, VOS Cloud and VOS 360 allow content creators and pay-TV operators to launch new video channels fast, and to run simpler, leaner operations. The VOS Cloud software can be installed on any hardware platform in the headend or data center, or as part of any private or public cloud deployment environment. VOS 360 is a fully hosted service that retains the exceptional video quality, reliability and 24/7 support that Harmonic is known for.

Benefits of the Cloud

Efficient Workflows

VOS Cloud and VOS 360 both feature six primary microservices that conform to the essential functions in media processing: Ingest, Playout, Graphics, Transcoding, Encryption and Delivery. Highly efficient workflows are built by simply selecting capabilities within each of these functionalities. Template-based workflows are also available, allowing for rapid, consistent configuration of system resources.

Business Agility

As cloud-native applications, VOS Cloud and VOS 360 feature the hallmarks of openness, scalability and agility. Support for OpenStack deployment environments and Harmonic APIs let you work the way you want, while usage-based pricing assures that you pay only for the functions actually used, helping you save on CAPEX and OPEX.

Operational Simplicity

Configuration, deployment and management of Harmonic cloud solutions are made easy through our automated video workflow formation technology.
Operational simplicity is enhanced further by VOS’s ability to automatically deploy and load balance compute resources based on compute node availability.

Using the VOS 360 Web Interface
