Harmonic have announced that Austin, Texas-based online auction shopping network Shop LC and its U.K.-based sister company, The Jewelry Channel (TJC), leaders in internet retailing of jewelry and lifestyle products, will use Harmonic solutions to power their OTT services. Using Harmonic's VOS®360 SaaS, Shop LC and TJC will be able to distribute live OTT content to any screen with exceptional quality of experience and low latency, as well as deliver on-demand content for web shoppers.

"Low latency is critical for live OTT.
