​German Service Provider PVSC Selects Harmonic Cloud Platform

Primary Video Stream Contribution (PVSC) has selected Harmonic’s VOS 360 for its video distribution.

“We wanted a simpler, faster way to deliver live feeds to cable operators across Europe and the rest of the world,” said Ralf Heublein of PVSC. “Harmonic’s platform extends our reach and future-proofs our primary distribution workflow. At any time, we can instantly add more collection and delivery points, resulting in greater flexibility and functionality.”

VOS360 leverages CDNs to speed up the primary distribution of linear channels from affiliate broadcasters to PVSC’s delivery partners, which include cable and telecom operators. With the VOS360 platform, PVSC can grant or revoke access, manage blackouts and customize live content from the cloud for each operator.

“Cloud-based delivery is a reliable and flexible alternative for primary distribution, connecting PVSC-affiliated broadcasters to cable and telecom operators anywhere in the world with an internet connection,” said Ian Graham, svp of global sales and video services at Harmonic.

PVSC is a joint venture between Global Media Distribution Services and Polytel/Mediapool Content Services, and was created to provide premium video contribution services to TV channels and network operators.
