Harmonic will use the stage of IBC 2017 to showcase a range of products that it believes will help monetize broadcast and OTT services. The products that will be on display support all deployment models—including software appliances, cloud and hybrid environments, and SaaS—to help address the needs of video content and service providers.
One of the OTT products to be shown at the show is Harmonic’s EyeQ content aware compression system. EyeQ features analytics from a Tier 1 direct broadcast satellite television provider to improve quality of experience.
“Change is constant across the television industry. 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, senior vice president, 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 IBC2017, 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 is the only technology provider with an end-to-end UHD-HDR workflow solution that supports channel origination, live streaming and on-demand applications.
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.
IBC 2017 runs from Sept. 15-19 in Amsterdam, with Harmonic located at booth 1.B20 during the show.
