The acceleration of multiscreen services. Not only the proliferation of connected devices and maturity of multiscreen ecosystems, but also the aggressive deployment of full-fledged services in many markets.
As exciting new multiscreen services increase in popularity, the challenge for the industry is figuring out the right models for monetisation that encompass new, existing and incremental services.
We expect to continue seeing a trend towards function collapse across the content creation and delivery chain. Whether it’s embedding advanced encoding and storage technology in cameras, baseband audio and video processing in compression devices, or set-top box capabilities into televisions, the industry continues to focus on simplifying workflows.
We have a great set of demos this year addressing multiscreen production, processing and delivery. We think this market is vitally important to the future of television, and we at Harmonic are very excited to be enabling these cutting-edge services demanded by consumers.
We’ve expanded our portfolio with new solutions in active storage and video servers. We’ll be working to create more synergy between our various product lines, and we’re also expecting to see more integration as a result.
Harmonic will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 1.B20
