Medianet Selects Harmonic to Launch
UHD Service in the Maldives

operator in the Maldives, has
deployed a UHD contribution and video
processing solution from Harmonic for
broadcasting sports events.
Using Harmonic's solution, Medianet

the biggest global soccer tournaments,
which recently took place in Russia,
with exceptional video quality at low
bit rates.
"Delivering one of the world's mostwatched sports events in UHD allows
us to be distinctive, providing viewers
with sharp detail and eye-catching
images of every memorable moment,"
said Mr Ahmed Shakeeb, CTO at
Medianet.
"Relying on Harmonic's solution, we
can deliver a superior user experience,

attract new subscribers and make
history in bringing UHD broadcasts to
the Maldives."

contribution
decoder
receives
Medianet's feed of live sports events
over an IP link, and decodes the
content before it is re-encoded in UHD
using the company's Electra video
processing platform. The solution
utilises the HEVC codec to ensure
increased bandwidth efficiency and
give an immersive, high-resolution
experience for viewers.
"Medianet chose our UHD turnkey
solution because it delivers amazing
video quality," said Tony Berthaud,
Vice President of Sales, APAC, at
Harmonic. "Any time one of our
customers plays the role of pioneer

in a project, we're excited to be a
part of that. Helping Medianet deliver
live UHD content to the Maldives
represents a leap forward in video
distribution in the region."
In other Harmonic news - TF1,
a leading French TV channel, has
deployed a UHD contribution and
distribution solution from Harmonic to
broadcast recent live sports events.
"We are gearing up to deliver one
of the first live UHD transmissions
via IPTV, a feat that can only be
accomplished by partnering with a
trusted technology provider," said
Hervé Pavard, CTO at TF1. "Harmonic
delivers the best video quality
we've seen at maximum bandwidth
efficiency, and we look forward to
showing viewers how incredibly

immersive sports events can be when
experienced in UHD."
He said that TF1 expected to use
Harmonic's HDR support to further
enhance future live sports feeds.
Using Harmonic's platform, TF1
can deliver live UHD coverage of
premium sports competitions directly
to French service providers, providing
exceptional video quality at low bit
rates.
"To be effective, UHD video quality
must be preserved throughout the
entire workflow, from the contribution
phase to the consumer's display," said
Ian Graham, Senior Vice President of
Sales, EMEA and LATAM, at Harmonic.
"Our UHD platform is designed to
maintain sharpness and image quality
during the entire production and
delivery process."
Harmonic's ViBE CP9000 HD/
UHD contribution solution preserves
video quality at the front of the
broadcast chain to create high quality
compressed video, which saves
bandwidth.
