Harmonic will demonstrate Ultra High Definition (UHD) video delivery over cable, using its NSG Exo distributed CCAP system, at ANGA COM this year.

The video delivery infrastructure firm’s NSG Exo system is a cable edge device for delivering video, data and voice services over coax.

“NSG Exo moves a service provider’s RF requirements out of the headend or hub and places them deep in the fiber network, simplifying headend design and operation to resolve space and power constraints, lower capital and operational expenses and provide service flexibility,” said Harmonic.

The company will also showcase its new converged platform for broadcast and OTT delivery of SD, HD and UHD/4K content, the Electra X advanced media processor family.

Harmonic claims this is the “world’s first” encoder family to support graphics, branding and playout functionalities, as well as full-frame UHD/4K live encoding.

It will show two models at ANGA COM: the Electra X2, which is designed for all SD and HD media processing applications; and the Electra X3, designed specifically for UHD encoding.

Harmonic will also highlight its IP Video to All Screens solution. This is designed to let operators provide TV experiences on any device using a single, multicast-enabled, HTTP adaptive bit rate (ABR) delivery architecture.

The ProMedia X Origin multiscreen media server, meanwhile, is a flexible solution for preparing and delivering broadcast-quality video to consumers. The software-based system features a range of advanced tools for streaming video to all IP devices, including smart TVs, set-top boxes, PCs, tablets and smartphones, according to Harmonic.

 

Harmonic will be exhibiting at ANGA COM in hall 10.1, booth S10.
