A must-see demo at the Harmonic stand at BroadcastAsia 2017 will be an end-to-end UHD-HDR OTT workflow, which enables operators to deliver stunning UHD HDR video for both live and on-demand applications. Recent innovations include contribution with the new ViBE CP9000 UHD-HEVC contribution encoder, and UHD editing via the Harmonic MediaGrid shared storage system.
As operators migrate to the cloud to gain increased infrastructure flexibility, elasticity and agility, Harmonic will demonstrate why its award-winning VOS Cloud media processing application and VOS 360 software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution are making a big impact on the way in which operators create and deliver video such as enabling the launch of broadcast and OTT services in a matter of hours, not months. With Harmonic’s cloud-native solutions, operators can manage video processing and delivery over public or private clouds. New workflow capabilities to be demonstrated include cloud-native playout.
Harmonic’s Spectrum X advanced media server and Spectrum XE playout solutions will be on display at BroadcastAsia 2017, showing attendees how they can easily transition to an all-IP infrastructure and support SD and HD broadcast and OTT channels for increased monetisation.
