Looking for a Robust Scaling Solution

A few years ago, NASA and Harmonic brought the first footage of space and earth to life. The channel streamed to millions of viewers around the world with stellar clarity.

It was a major feat. The next step was to showcase the breathtaking beauty and grandeur of space live, in UHD HDR, 24/7.

The Play-by-Play

Harmonic reached out to industry partners Accedo and CenturyLink. Together, the technology partners designed a solution to launch the service and developed an app for mobile and Roku TV™.

Harmonic’s VOS®360 Live Streaming Platform simplifies the entire media processing and delivery chain for UHD content provided by NASA.

Harmonic and technology partners built a dynamic user experience management platform for customized brand experiences. Accedo worked closely with Harmonic to ensure the app satisfied all requirements, from the design vision to Roku® platform certification.

Delivery at scale was a massive achievement. There were more than 140,000 Roku channel downloads in the first three months. CenturyLink’s CDN distributed the NASA UHD content to millions of viewers on every continent, and handled fluctuating bandwidth demands with ease.

Images were delivered via the cloud at the lowest required bit rates without making any exception to visible video quality. The solution successfully delivered UHD HDR at less than 15 Mbps.
