Boosting viewer satisfaction

With Harmonic's expertise from design to deployment, and support from the local system integrator Menasist, Turk Telekom could go to market fast, deploying the full solution in just around three months time.
Harmonic’s Spectrum XE simplifies the creation of high-quality HD channel mosaics, which can be used for multi-view sports, monitoring and to provide viewers with a portal for their IPTV and OTT bouquets.

Harmonic's Spectrum XE was a perfect fit

The mosaic thumbnail display allows viewers to easily navigate content and quickly find what they want to watch. For a mosaic view to be effective, the quality of the video thumbnails must be exceptional. Turk Telekom’s viewers are accustomed to watching HD video on every screen and the operator had to meet those expectations.
It selected Harmonic’s Spectrum™ XE playout system which enabled support for up to five SD and five HD video mosaics as well as a radio mosaic, which includes one video and twenty-two audio streams. Spectrum XE’s graphical user interface includes video thumbnail mosaic generation and intuitive playlist editing and control features with a set of advanced monitoring views that report the status of multiple simultaneous channels.
Turk Telekom can now simply choose the background and thumbnail size for each mosaic, enter the name of the channel and insert the logo and banner.
