Harmonic To Showcase Groundbreaking
OTT Technology and Service Innovations
A

t CABSAT 2018, Harmonic,
a worldwide leader in video
delivery technology and services,
will demonstrate its groundbreaking
approach to OTT video delivery,
which enables operators in the Middle
East and Africa to deliver pristine
video services, up to UHD-HDR, with
unprecedented agility and efficiency.
The Middle East and North Africa is
one of the fastest growing regions for
pay TV. According to recent research
from IHS Markit, pay-TV homes in the
region will reach seven million in 2021,
with revenues almost doubling to
US$4.03 billion. Enabling the region's
pay-TV providers to capitalise on this
opportunity, Harmonic's video delivery
solutions set the benchmark for quality
of experience (QoE) and ease of
deployment.
"At
CABSAT,
Harmonic
will
demonstrate its latest IP and cloudnative innovations that give pay-TV
operators powerful new tools to
exceed
consumer
expectations,

accelerate
time-to-market
for
new revenue-generating services,
and significantly reduce operating
expenses," said Bart Spriester, Senior
Vice President, Video Products, at
Harmonic.
Harmonic's
award-winning,
Cloud-native VOS media processing
applications and VOS 360 managed
service help operators launch new
broadcast and OTT services more
quickly than ever, reducing launch
times from months to days or even
hours. At CABSAT, a Cloud-native
workflow will demonstrate seamlessly
integrated playout, live transcoding,
time-shift TV, VOD and cloud DVR
applications.
In the pay-TV world, QoE matters
irrespective of whether an operator
is delivering traditional broadcast or
OTT services. Harmonic's new EyeQ
content-aware video compression
solution reduces the bandwidth for
OTT delivery up to 50%, enabling
operators to minimise buffering and

other network congestion impairments
while also decreasing CDN costs. At
CABSAT, Harmonic will demonstrate a
live end-to-end low latency workflow
for distribution over CDNs utilising
the next-generation Common Media
Application Format (CMAF) standard.
Harmonic offers a uniquely powerful
end-to-end solution for delivering live
and on-demand UHD-HDR content.
Covering every step of the workflow

Harmonic's VOS360 website

- from UHD playout via Harmonic's
Spectrum X media server, contribution
via the ViBE CP9000 encoder, and
broadcast distribution with the Electra
X encoder, with decoding by RD9000
decoder - Harmonic sets the bar for
efficient delivery of compelling UHDHDR services.
Harmonic will demonstrate its
technology innovations at CABSAT.
