Looking for a robust scalable solution

The number of homes worldwide using an Ultra HD TV passed the 200 million mark in 2018. Yet, connected TVs and the shifting market still pose strategic and technical challenges to broadcasters. Viewers crave the highest possible video quality, especially for watching sports. In both live and for VOD formats, the Japanese broadcaster needed to deliver UHD HDR to connected TVs, set-top boxes and multi-screen devices.

The Japanese broadcaster gets results

Using VOS®360 Media SaaS, the Japanese broadcaster is able to launch new UHD HDR channels, create ad-hoc live events and provide real-world value to its subscribers. 
The broadcaster is now ready to launch and manage hybrid services with confidence for future international sporting events.

Harmonic's VOS360 Platform was a perfect fit

Our SaaS business model makes live streaming simple.

The target was to launch in time for world championship events in 2019 and start preparing for the 2020 Games in Tokyo. A simple approach was needed to streamline their video processing and delivery. Using the VOS®360 Media SaaS, the broadcaster delivers three UHD profiles in various bit-rates, including 4K. In less than six months customers watched their first hybrid UHD HDR streams on connected devices.

The broadcaster needed ultimate flexibility. Our agnostic solution seamlessly integrated to operate within existing systems. This lowers the technical complexity without creating or managing additional infrastructures. It allowed the broadcaster to unify the live and VOD processing chain to maintain the same video quality cross-channel.

Another crucial step was to ensure robust scalability, especially for live sporting events. The elasticity that the VOS360 Media SaaS provides gave the broadcaster the confidence to launch new UHD HDR channels for all devices, worldwide and in time for world championship events.
