“The media and broadcast industries are evolving rapidly as operators deliver higher quality of experiences, reach more screen types, and increase monetization. Having a scalable, flexible and reliable video delivery solution has become imperative today,” says Andy Warman of Harmonic. “Harmonic will demonstrate how its cloud and SaaS solutions are changing the face of OTT and next-gen TV delivery, driving better-quality video experiences on every screen. Smarter, faster and simpler, Harmonic’s software-centric approach for video delivery enables broadcasters and service providers to increase their business agility, launching services faster and more reliably,” Warman adds.
“A key highlight at IBC will be Harmonic’s VOS360 media processing SaaS, which covers the entire media processing chain, simplifying OTT workflows. Harmonic will demonstrate new channel origination in the cloud capabilities for its VOS360 solution, which bring lower playout cost-per-channel. In addition, Harmonic will showcase disaster recovery scenarios with VOS360 SaaS leveraging the public cloud. Harmonic will unveil new DAI capabilities for its VOS360 SaaS. Using these functionalities, operators can deliver advanced targeted advertisements and replace content during blackouts, increasing monetization for OTT content,” says Warman.
Harmonic and its partners, Tiledmedia, Digital Immersion and Viaccess-Orca, will give IBC2018 attendees a peek into the video future by demonstrating the exceptional quality achieved with delivering 8K 360° VR video using tiling technology.
