Harmonic VOS(TM)

Shown for the first time at BIRTV, Harmonic VOS(TM) is a powerful, software-based media processing architecture that unifies the entire media processing chain for broadcast and multiscreen distribution. Enabling the key functions of video delivery infrastructure -- including ingest, compression, graphics and branding, packaging, and delivery -- on common hardware platforms, the VOS architecture leverages IT economics to enable content and service providers to simplify workflows, maximize flexibility, gain operational efficiency, and lower their total cost of ownership. VOS also gives users the ability to deliver superior SD, HD, and Ultra HD video to any device, from big-screen TVs to smartphones, with industry-leading video quality and up to 30 percent greater efficiency than current hardware-based systems. 

At BIRTV Harmonic will be showing the first product based on VOS architecture -- the Electra(TM) XVM virtualized media processor, the industry's first software-based, broadcast-ready media processing platform.

Spectrum ChannelPort(TM)

Harmonic will feature enhancements to the market-leading Spectrum(TM) media server product line, including the Spectrum ChannelPort(TM) integrated channel playout system, which augments ingest, storage, and playout broadcast workflows. ChannelPort's impressive performance includes high-density playout, dual DVE capabilities, and compatibility with the industry's leading automation systems.
