The joint solution paves the way<br /> for easier, cost-effective deployments of live video.<br /><br /> The integrated SaaS platform also gives OTT players a comprehensive solution that can address all<br /> video management and service aspects, primarily when they are looking for<br /> ‘glass to glass’ service, including full flexibility to manage their services,<br /> and deploy new services quickly. The service’s ‘pay as you go’ model also<br /> enables customers to start small and grow over time.<br /><br /> Harmonic’s VOS 360 service lets users launch a new broadcast-quality OTT service in hours, instead of months. The turnkey ecosystem makes it easy to contribute, transcode, package,<br /> scramble and deliver live SD, HD content to all connected devices. Kaltura’s<br /> OTT TV solution provides a highly scalable, cost-effective platform that<br /> enables OTT players to monetize their content while providing an engaging<br /> experience.<br /><br /> “We are seeing a growing number of content owners, TV networks, publishers and service providers<br /> asking for a flexible SaaS platform that will allow them to manage their entire<br /> OTT service - high quality live/linear OTT channels.

An extension of Harmonic’s<br /> award-winning VOS software-based media processing platform, VOS Cloud is a<br /> media processing platform that enables content and service providers to manage<br /> the video production and delivery workflow for broadcast and OTT applications<br /> via standard IT hardware, over public or private cloud infrastructure. The<br /> second VOS offering, Harmonic’s VOS 360 professional cloud media processing<br /> service (<a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwvos360tv/"></a>), provides operators with a<br /> software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that is hosted in the public cloud and<br /> maintained and monitored by Harmonic, enabling customers to launch<br /> revenue-generating, broadcast-quality OTT services in a matter of minutes<br /> instead of months.<br /><br /> “Senior executives at numerous media companies have repeatedly told us they want cloud-native<br /> solutions - period. For technology companies this means not simply repackaging<br /> the software they already have, but re-implementing their technologies into<br /> microservices architectures that enable hyper scale and service agility. Beyond<br /> technology, a fresh approach to commercial models for licensing, service and<br /> support is also required to fully unlock what media companies really mean when<br /> they talk about cloud,” said Joe Zaller, president and founder of Devoncroft<br /> Partners.<br /><br /> The VOS Cloud platform,which is currently in trials in various OpenStack and public cloud environments with leading service providers around the globe, provides operators with<br /> ultimate simplicity, efficiency and agility. Configuration, deployment and<br /> management is easy through VOS Cloud’s automated video formation technology,<br /> which uses standard IT deployment templates to simplify set-up and unlock<br /> powerful media processing and delivery workflows. By transforming traditional<br /> video preparation and delivery architectures into a hybrid cloud operation, VOS<br /> Cloud accelerates time to market for new broadcast and OTT services.<br /><br /> As one of the first professional grade, native cloud-based media processing services in the<br /> industry, VOS 360 is maintained and operated by Harmonic 24 hours a day,<br /> ensuring superior quality of experience and service availability at all times.<br /> Built upon leading public cloud infrastructure platforms, the VOS 360 service<br /> makes it easy to prepare and deliver content from anywhere in the world, with<br /> total geographic redundancy and operational resiliency.<br /><br /> “With the VOS Cloud media processing platform, operators have the flexibility to deploy on public<br /> or private cloud infrastructure. Building on this innovation, VOS 360 is a hosted<br /> service that retains the exceptional video quality, reliability and 24/7<br /> support that Harmonic is known for,” said Patrick Harshman, president and CEO<br /> of Harmonic. “Staying true to our open architecture solutions strategy,<br /> Harmonic allows our ecosystem partners to seamlessly integrate with VOS 360 to<br /> deliver a true end-to-end, OTT, SaaS platform in an elastic public cloud<br /> environment.”<br /><br /> Through capabilities such as time-shift TV, VOD and cloud DVR, both VOS cloud offerings enable<br /> service providers to generate instant revenue, without the traditional CAPEX<br /> involved with building, maintaining and operating a new headend or data center.<br /> Pay-as-you-go pricing for both offerings allows service providers to realize<br /> ROI in the shortest time possible.<br /><br /> Encoding and transcoding functionality on the new VOS cloud offerings is powered by the<br /> Harmonic PURE Compression EngineTM, which provides support for a wide range of<br /> formats, codecs and encoding schemes to enable broadcast-quality video at low<br /> bitrates. MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC and HEVC codecs are offered, as are SD, HD and UHD<br /> content formats for broadcast, cable, satellite and IPTV delivery — including<br /> constant, variable and adaptive bitrate streaming.<br /><br /> &nbsp;<br /><br /> Harmonic is offering a free 30-day trial of the VOS 360 service to all customers.
