Harmonic, Inc. Adopts Microsoft PlayReady's DRM Technology for OTT Multi-Screen Security

Harmonic Inc. has integrated its ProMedia Origin and ProMedia X Origin multiscreen media servers with Microsoft PlayReady digital rights management, or DRM, technology for content access protection. By supporting PlayReady, Harmonic's ProMedia Origin and ProMedia X Origin provide video content and service providers with a versatile and scalable content protection solution for the secure deployment of live and time-shift TV, cloud DVR and VOD OTT services on a wide range of connected devices, ranging from mobile phones and tablets to game consoles to net top and set-top boxes. Utilizing Harmonic's ProMedia Origin solutions with Microsoft PlayReady, video content and service providers can distribute secure content to a wide range of devices via a single DRM technology. Streamlining the OTT multiscreen ecosystem to a unified DRM technology significantly reduces the time to market for high-value video services while minimizing workflow complexity and points of failure. Microsoft's PlayReady technology includes a variety of features for live TV applications including key rotation, which is designed to provide more robust content protection for OTT multiscreen services, while simplifying operations, minimizing service interruption, and reducing costs. ProMedia Origin and ProMedia X Origin are software-based all-in-one media servers that support the OTT standard protocols, such as Apple HLS, Adobe HDS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, and MPEG-DASH, to enable high-volume, live, adaptive bitrate streaming and the delivery of time-shifted services such as catch-up TV, start-over TV, and cloud DVR to connected devices. By providing video content and service providers with a comprehensive multiscreen media server, they dramatically reduce rack space, simplify workflows, and maximize cost savings.

Indian Media Company F7 Broadcast Expands DSNG Contribution Capabilities with Comprehensive Solution from Harmonic

Harmonic's Ellipse and ProView platforms provide F7 Broadcast with a highly flexible and scalable end-to-end contribution solution for digital satellite newsgathering (DSNG), enabling the media company to cost-effectively expand from operating one regional news channel to five channels.

ViXS Systems, Inc. and Harmonic Demonstrate Technology Providing Pay TV and OTT Operators Significant Cost Savings for Deploying Ultra HD Broadcasts

ViXS Systems Inc. has teamed up with Harmonic to demonstrate the hybrid AVC/HEVC, MPEG-DASH technology -- called HybridDASH. By deploying a HybridDASH solution, providers will be able to reduce upfront capital costs by using existing equipment and infrastructure. The companies will also demonstrate 1920x1080 interlaced (1080i) broadcast video delivery using SAFF standard syntax, and HEVC compression which provides significant bandwidth and cost savings to operators. These demonstrations will highlight the latest in cost-effective, end-to-end HEVC broadcasting and streaming technologies for pay TV service operators and OTT video providers and will take place in the ViXS Meeting Place Booth #26055 in the LVCC in South Hall 2 at CES 2015. As service and OTT providers plan for 4K Ultra HD HEVC broadcasts, reasonable capital costs are critical for the success of their deployment. HybridDASH technology allows service operators to broadcast a single multi-profile stream serving their existing High Definition (HD) AVC legacy Set Top Boxes (STBs) and/or mobile devices while simultaneously enabling 4K Ultra HD HEVC capable devices to select the profiles, delivering their full potential. By deploying a HybridDASH solution, these providers will be able to enable 4K Ultra HD services without incurring the large capital burden of replacing existing HD equipment. HybridDASH is the technology needed to alleviate the cost burdens associated with this transition. Though viewed as an enabler of 4K Ultra HD resolutions and deeper color experiences, the HEVC Codec promises significant bandwidth savings on all formats including HD resolution content. As service operator's transition to HEVC, there will be cost pressures to re-use existing 1080i content and delivery methods requiring the need for a HEVC 1080i solution. With HEVC, there are significant bandwidth savings to be had with interlaced formats over progressive formats. This allows service operators to gain even more value from their bandwidth, while leaving their content provider contracts unaffected. The Harmonic and ViXS HEVC 1080i and hybrid MPEG-DASH end-to-end technology demonstrations are comprised of Harmonic's WFS file-based workflow engine and ProMedia® Xpress high performance transcoder with the ViXS XCode 6400 STB solution.
