Harmonic will showcase a range of solutions aimed at broadcast, cable and satellite service providers and operators at ANGA COM this year.

The company, which completed its acquisition of compression specialist Thomson Video Networks in March, said that visitors to the show will see how the combined company is working on Ultra HD, High Dynamic Range, HEVC, cloud and advanced CCAP solutions.

Harmonic will demonstrate an Ultra HD High Dynamic Range (HDR) solution for cable distribution at ANGA COM 2016 that will let operators deliver 4K HDR live and VOD content to any screen.

This solution includes the NSG Exo distributed CMTS system, ViBE 4K real-time encoder, ViBE VS7000 video system and ProMedia X Origin streaming media server, and it will be demoed using footage from the NASA TV UHD channel.

Harmonic will also showcase two new VOS software-based media-processing offerings powered by the cloud — VOS Cloud and VOS 360.

VOS Cloud lets content and service providers manage video production and delivery workflow for broadcast and OTT applications via standard IT hardware over public or private cloud infrastructures. The VOS 360 professional cloud media-processing service gives operators a software-as-a-service solution that is hosted in the public cloud and maintained and monitored by Harmonic.

Elsewhere, Harmonic will demonstrate the latest work from its research group with adaptive bitrate delivery it says offers up to 50% bandwidth savings over its currently shipping AVC compression.

It will also showcase the high-efficiency encoding capabilities of the Harmonic PURE Compression Engine – an advanced encoding technology that delivers superior video quality at minimum bandwidth and is capable of encoding up to 12 high-quality HD AVC channels in a single broadcast QAM.
