Highlighted Products and Technologies
Cloud-Based Video Preparation and Delivery
Harmonic will showcase two new VOS(TM) offerings powered by the cloud. An extension of Harmonic's award-winning VOS software-based media processing platform, VOS Cloud is a media processing platform that enables content and service providers to manage the video production and delivery workflow for broadcast and OTT applications via standard IT hardware, over public or private cloud infrastructure. The second VOS offering, Harmonic's VOS 360 professional cloud media processing service (www.vos360.tv), provides operators with a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that is hosted in the public cloud and maintained and monitored by Harmonic, enabling customers to launch revenue-generating, broadcast-quality OTT services in a matter of minutes instead of months.
Ultra HD Media Processing
The company will demonstrate its award-winning ViBE(R) VS7000 convergent video system, now with Ultra HD capabilities. The ViBE VS7000 is a next-generation compression platform for all-IP environments, encompassing mission-critical applications including live broadcast-quality encoding and faster-than-real-time file transcoding.
Tailored for all-new convergent applications such as multiscreen and over-the-top (OTT) service delivery, as well as traditional IPTV and IP/cable delivery, the ViBE VS7000 platform enables video operators to expand the reach of their services with unprecedented versatility. The software-based system, which leverages the Harmonic video operating system, is available as a turnkey solution with hardware provided, as software only for running on standard COTS servers, or as fully virtualized for data center environments.
Conference Speaking Sessions
In addition to the demonstrations, Ian Trow, senior director of emerging technology and strategy at Harmonic, will chair the UX & Next-Gen Formats Conference on Tuesday, April 26, and will speak at the Software Defined Video session on Wednesday, April 27.
