Ultra HD Workflows

Using Harmonic's technology, video content and service providers can deliver live and VOD content to any screen, with industry-leading video quality, up to 4K, at a low total cost of ownership. The company's UHD solution includes the ViBE(R) 4K real-time encoder, the ViBE VS7000 video system and the ProMedia(R) X Origin streaming media server, with packaging on-the-fly and origination capabilities to dramatically reduce operators' storage and service costs.
As part of the demo, the company will use stunning footage from the NASA TV UHD channel, showcasing the breathtaking beauty of space in high-resolution images and video created using an end-to-end UHD delivery system from Harmonic.
To meet the growing demand for multiscreen services, Harmonic will highlight its Electra(R) X advanced media processor, ViBE XT1000 high-density transcoder and ProMedia(TM) X Origin multiscreen media server. Featuring broadcast-quality SD/HD encoding for broadcast and multiscreen applications -- along with packaging on-the-fly capabilities -- the Harmonic solution offers significant reductions in capital and operating expenses while accelerating time to market for operators faced with fast channel lineup growth and the rise of multiscreen applications.
Contribution Over the Internet
