for many years and have recently
started to work with Elemental for
encoding. The servers have proven
reliable and high performing and
we also appreciate the strong
engineering background of the
Elemental team," said Kaj af
Kleen, CTO for Viaplay. "We need
to upgrade our infrastructure
continuously to accommodate
the innovation we see in the video
streaming market and we believe
Elemental is a good partner for
enabling this."

through its YouSee and TDC brands.
The total solution includes
Harmonic's ProMedia suite of
multiscreen production and

Leveraging its extensive range
of adaptive bitrate technologies,
Harmonic's solution enables TDC
to deliver high-quality streams of
100 channels to more than 1.4 million
subscribers on TVs, PCs, tablets,

"To enrich our live and VOD offering
with catch-up TV content, we
needed a new video infrastructure
solution that was flexible, scalable,
and capable of supporting a variety
of devices, including our existing
base of deployed set-top boxes,"
said Tom Eltzholtz, Director, TDC.

Harmonic's ProMedia suite is being
used to deliver 100 channels

to deliver superior quality catchup TV services to our customers
anytime, anywhere, and on any

efficiently create, manage, distribute
and monetise Polsat's media assets.
Polsat has now integrated
an Avid Interplay Media Asset
Management system into its
existing Avid infrastructure.
The Telewizja Polsat (Group) has 20
popular TV channels.

Meanwhile 13TV, an independent
broadcaster in Spain, has been
using three LiveU backpack
units for its news output.
