Cloud-Based Navigation on IP STBs
At The Cable Show 2012, Harmonic will demonstrate the advanced capabilities of IP cloud-based navigation for IP and hybrid set-top boxes (STBs), showing the advantages of using an IP-based STB over the traditional STB-based user experience.

4:1 HD Statmux
As MSOs look to introduce IP video and expand their content, allocating enough IP bandwidth is a major challenge. Harmonic will demonstrate how users can solve the spectrum issue in the traditional MPEG-2 space by utilizing Harmonic encoders and transcoders to generate high-quality 4:1 HD statmux pools.
Harmonic is leading the way in the migration to High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) compression. At The Cable Show 2012, Harmonic will showcase H.265-based video compression, which offers a 30 percent increase in efficiency over H.264-based systems. Whether a customer is employing traditional MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC, ABR, or the emerging H.265 standard, Harmonic offers compression solutions that operators can rely on.
