Harmonic announces new multiscreen packaging and origination capabilities for its VOS software-based

VOS now includes packaging-on-the-fly and low-latency Origin server functionalities

Unifying the entire broadcast and multiscreen media processing chain, VOS now includes packaging-on-the-fly and low-latency Origin server functionalities originally developed for Harmonic’s ProMedia family of integrated multiscreen applications. VOS also supports a wide range of broadcast-quality captioning and subtitling, ad insertion, and blackout functions for live, VOD, and time-shift services.

The Harmonic VOS platform combines the essential elements of broadcast and multiscreen media processing — including ingest, compression, graphics and branding, packaging, and delivery — using common off-the-shelf hardware. The VOS architecture is ideal for deployment in video headends or it can be fully virtualized in IT data center environments.
