Harmonic is to use NAB 2015 as a platform to showcase its latest announcements in video production and delivery workflows for broadcast and multiscreen services.

"Today's consumers demand high-quality customized sports, entertainment and news video on any device, anywhere, anytime," said Peter Alexander, chief marketing officer at Harmonic. "At NAB, Harmonic will demonstrate how broadcasters and service providers can create, deliver and monetize this consumer experience with unprecedented agility and cost efficiency leveraging our video processing, virtualized video infrastructure and channel playout solutions."

Highlights include:

• Harmonic's new Electra X family of advanced media processors supporting video compression, graphics, branding and playout for broadcast and OTT delivery. On display will be a live UHD encoding workflow featuring the Electra X3 advanced media processor. Powered by the Harmonic PURE Compression Engine encoding module, the Electra X3 enables broadcasters to deliver real-time, broadcast-ready UHD content up to 2160p60 (HEVC Main 10 profile).
• The Harmonic VOS platform, a fully virtualised video infrastructure that includes Electra XVM, a software-based, fully converged, broadcast-ready media processing platform. The VOS architecture enables broadcasters to simplify workflows, maximise flexibility and gain operational efficiency while decreasing their TCO.
• An end-to-end HEVC-based video transmission solution featuring Harmonic's new ProView 7100 integrated receiver-decoder (IRD), which supports the HEVC standard up to 1080p60 resolution
• Harmonic Polaris software, a new suite of playout management tools integrated with Harmonic's market-leading Spectrum media server family.
• Density improvements for Harmonic's MediaGrid shared storage system. The new high-density storage system provides 15-RU worth of conventional MediaGrid storage into just 5-RU and supports up to 360TB of usable storage per chassis.
