At CABSAT 2018, between January 14-16 in Dubai, Harmonic, a provider of video delivery technology and services, will demonstrate its approach to OTT video delivery, which enables operators in the Middle East and Africa to deliver video services, up to UHD-HDR, with efficiency. The Middle East and North Africa is one of the fastest growing regions for pay TV. According to recent research from IHS Markit, pay-TV homes in the region will reach seven million in 2021, with revenues almost doubling to $4.03 billion. Enabling the region’s pay-TV providers to capitalise on this opportunity,
“At CABSAT, Harmonic will demonstrate its latest IP and cloud-native innovations that give pay-TV operators powerful new tools to exceed consumer expectations, accelerate time-to-market for new revenue-generating services, and significantly reduce operating expenses,” said Bart Spriester, senior vice president, video products, at Harmonic.
Harmonic’s cloud-native VOS media processing applications and VOS 360 managed service help operators launch new broadcast and OTT services more quickly than ever, the company claims, reducing launch times from months to days or even hours. At CABSAT, a cloud-native workflow will demonstrate integrated playout, live transcoding, time-shift TV, VOD and cloud DVR applications.
In the pay-TV world, QoE matters irrespective of whether an operator is delivering traditional broadcast or OTT services. Harmonic’s new EyeQ content-aware video compression solution reduces the bandwidth for OTT delivery up to 50%, the company claims, enabling operators to minimise buffering and other network congestion impairments while also decreasing CDN costs. At CABSAT, Harmonic will demonstrate a live end-to-end low latency workflow for distribution over CDNs utilising the next-generation Common Media Application Format (CMAF) standard.
Harmonic offers an end-to-end solution for delivering live and on-demand UHD-HDR content. From UHD playout via Harmonic’s Spectrum X media server, contribution via the ViBE CP9000 encoder, and broadcast distribution with the Electra X encoder, with decoding by RD9000 decoder Harmonic provides delivery of UHD-HDR services.
