Harmonic Demos Compression Analytics
Harmonic VOS 360 on show.
Harmonic’s IBC exhibit includes tech for migrating to cloud, IP workflows, HEVC and UHD-HDR.
The firm’s EyeQ video compression optimization solution will be shown working live on the show floor, demonstrating analytics from a Tier 1 direct broadcast satellite television provider to improve quality of experience (QoE).
One demo will be shown in the context of enabling operators to deliver a better QoE to end-users over constrained 3G, 4G and 5G mobile networks, leveraging EyeQ new packaging technology. During the demo, HD video will be delivered using minimal bandwidth (i.e., sub-500kbps) on a smartphone.
"OTT services are becoming a requirement, cloud technology is transforming the way video content is produced and delivered, the migration to all-IP is well underway and 5G networks will impact the entire mobile video ecosystem," said Bart Spriester, svp, video products at Harmonic. "Our customers need to adapt to this evolving media landscape, but change doesn't happen overnight. As the trusted video delivery partner, we know this and that's why we provide a solution for every type of workflow. At IBC, we'll demonstrate how traditional and emerging video service providers can deliver ultra-high-quality and personalized live and on-demand video services faster and more efficiently."
For OTT service providers that want to increase revenue and differentiate themselves, Harmonic will highlight network PVR, targeted ad insertion and UHD-HDR playout distribution functionalities. Harmonic says it’s the only technology provider with an end-to-end UHD-HDR workflow solution that supports channel origination, live streaming and on-demand applications.
There will be a demo of a live end-to-end low latency workflow for distribution over CDNs utilizing the Common Media Application Framework (CMAF) standard, highlighting how operators can reduce the delay for OTT viewers to a level that is similar to traditional broadcast.
In addition, Harmonic will unveil its new Packager X and Origin X software solutions, which streamline OTT video distribution via on-the-fly packaging capabilities and broad support for streaming formats (i.e., HLS, DASH, MSS, RTMP) from the cloud, boosting monetization through live time-shift TV and VOD.
The firm’s VOS Cloud software and VOS 360 SaaS solutions are shown with cloud playout capabilities, as well as new orchestrated workflows for the VOS cloud range.
