                TV Services with Harmonic Multiscreen Solution

   Harmonic's ProMedia® Origin Streaming Video Server and MediaGrid Shared
   Storage System Optimize the Delivery of Catch-Up TV Content for YouSee's
                             Multiscreen Service

SAN JOSE, Calif. - March 18, 2014 - Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT), the worldwide
leader in video delivery infrastructure, today announced that TDC, Denmark's
principal telecom company, has deployed a comprehensive multiscreen solution
from Harmonic to deliver time-shift services with catch-up TV content through
its YouSee and TDC brands. The total solution includes Harmonic's ProMedia^®
suite of multiscreen production and preparation applications, NMX(TM) Digital
Service Manager video network management solution, and MediaGrid shared
storage systems. Leveraging its extensive range of adaptive bitrate
technologies, Harmonic's solution enables TDC to deliver high-quality streams
of 100 channels to more than 1.4 million subscribers on TVs, PCs, tablets, and
smartphones.

"To enrich our live and VOD offering with catch-up TV content, we needed a new
video infrastructure solution that was flexible, scalable, and capable of
supporting a variety of devices, including our existing base of deployed
set-top boxes," said Tom Eltzholtz, director, TDC. "Only Harmonic was able to
provide us with a one-stop shop for HTTP packaging, recording, and storage,
making multiscreen delivery seamless. Thanks to Harmonic's solution, we now
have the flexibility to deliver superior quality catch-up TV services to our
customers anytime, anywhere, and on any device, including our large install
base of Mediaroom^® set-top boxes and clients, with the option to launch
additional channels in the future."

Harmonic's ProMedia Origin stream packager and streaming video server and
MediaGrid shared storage system are tightly integrated to optimize the
delivery of catch-up TV content for TDC's multiscreen service. ProMedia Origin
enables sophisticated adaptive stream encapsulation and encryption processes
for a variety of HTTP adaptive bitrate protocols, as well as high throughput
multi-format streaming from a unified platform. Together with Harmonic's
MediaGrid, they enable independent scaling of storage capacity, bandwidth, and
streaming capability. This powerful scalability will allow TDC to easily
expand its multiscreen services with time-shift TV, control CDN costs, and
generate additional revenue streams in the future.

Harmonic's NMX video network management solution centrally controls the
ProMedia Package and Origin server, enhancing scalability while simplifying
deployment and management of TDC's multiscreen services.

"Harmonic is the only vendor to offer such a comprehensive end-to-end solution
for streaming high-quality content to any device," said Thomas Henriksen,
regional sales director, Harmonic. "As TDC strives to compete with other
Danish service providers and global streaming services like Netflix,
Harmonic's solutions will provide them with scalability to grow while also
delivering exceptional video quality."

Harmonic's comprehensive range of solutions that bring increased operational
efficiencies and cost savings to broadcast and multiscreen production and
delivery, while ensuring a superior video quality on any screen, will be
showcased at stand 155 during TV Connect in London, March 18-20. Further
