Harmonic Inc. designs, manufactures, and sells video infrastructure products and system solutions that enable its customers to create, prepare and deliver a range of video services to consumer devices, including televisions, personal computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones. The company sells video processing and production and playout solutions and services worldwide to broadcast and media companies, streaming new media companies, cable operators, and satellite and telecommunications (telco) Pay-TV service providers. The company sells cable edge solutions and related services to cable operators globally. Products The company’s products generally fall into three principal categories: video production platforms and playout solutions, video processing solutions and edge products. The company also provides technical support services and professional services to its customers worldwide. The company’s video production platforms consist of video-optimized storage and content management applications, which provide content companies with file-based infrastructure to support video content production activities, such as editing, post-production and finishing. The company’s playout solutions are based on scalable video servers used by broadcasters, content owners and multi-channel network operators to create and playout television channels. The company’s video processing solutions, which include network management software and application software and hardware products, provide its customers with the ability to acquire various signals from different sources and in different protocols to deliver real-time and stored content to their subscribers, for viewing on a range of devices. The company’s cable edge products enable cable operators to deliver customized broadcast or narrowcast on-demand and data services to their subscribers. Video Production Platforms and Playout Solutions Video Servers: The company’s Spectrum and MediaDeck video server products are used by broadcasters, content owners and multi-channel network operators to create play-to-air television channels. The company’s customers typically use these video server products to record incoming content from either live feeds or from tapes, encoding that content in real-time into standard media files that are then stored in the server’s file system until the content is needed for playback as part of a scheduled playlist. The company’s servers support both standard and high definition programming, as well as many different media formats, such as MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DV and AVC-Intra, using both QuickTime and MXF media wrapper formats. Video-Optimized Storage: The company’s MediaGrid active storage system is a scale-out, network-attached storage system with a built-in media file system that has been optimized for typical read and write file operations found in media production workflows. Architected as a clustered storage system with a distributed file system, MediaGrid provides storage capacity and access bandwidth to support demanding media production applications, such as video editing, content transformation and media library management. Media Applications: Complementing its server and storage platforms, the company’s media application server, combined with a suite of integrated applications, including ProXplore, ProBrowse and ProXchange, provides a basic level of integrated media management and workflow control over content stored across its systems. For media management, its underlying application programming interface, called Media Services Framework, allow both customers and other application developers to build advanced media management applications that can automate many media processing and movement tasks, collect and organize content metadata, and provide search and review functionality. Video Processing Solutions Broadcast and Distribution Encoders: The company’s electra and ion high performance encoders compress video, audio and data channels to low bit rates, while maintaining high video quality. The company’s encoders are available in standard and high definition formats in both MPEG-2, and the newer MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, or MPEG-4, video com
