USA / SGP: Harmonic will highlight its video delivery solutions for SaaS, cloud, software and appliance environments, at BroadcastAsia 2019.
“OTT and UHD video consumption are exploding in the APAC market, and operators need a streamlined approach for service distribution and monetisation,” said Tony Berthaud, Vice President of Sales and Video Services, APAC at Harmonic. “At BroadcastAsia2019, we’ll showcase the power of SaaS solutions to improve video streaming experiences, reduce video delivery costs and simplify workflows for both broadcast and OTT service distribution.”
At BroadcastAsia2019, stand 4S2-01, Harmonic will demonstrate how its VOS360 SaaS solution simultaneously supports unique workflows for OTT and next-gen TV delivery with innovative solutions including HD/UHD channel origination, statmux and disaster recovery scenarios, as well as a CDN-enabled primary distribution solution supported by VOS360 SaaS. Deployed by leading service providers in the region, Harmonic’s VOS360 SaaS is hosted in the public cloud and unifies the entire media processing chain, allowing operators to launch video streaming services faster, be more agile and simplify their operations.
The company will also showcase disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), a unique application for VOS360 SaaS that supports any use case, whether playout, OTT or broadcast-related. Combining the benefits of a resilient, elastic and secure SaaS offering with a usage-based pricing model, Harmonic’s DRaaS solution is ideal for a variety of applications, including live sports streaming.
