Harmonic has announced it will demonstrate a variety of technologies and solutions set to "transform video production and delivery in the broadcast, cable, telco, satellite, and multiscreen environments" at IBC2014, stand 1.B20.

"All of the technologies and solutions we'll be highlighting at IBC2014 are designed to bring simplicity, flexibility, scalability, and efficiency to broadcasters, which is becoming increasingly important as video production and delivery get more and more complex," said Peter Alexander, chief marketing officer at Harmonic.
"At the show, Harmonic will demonstrate its latest innovations, including new software-defined, virtualisable video delivery that unifies all media processing functions on a single platform. Attendees can stop by the booth to see how the Harmonic VOS software-based architecture and Electra XVM virtualised media processor bring unprecedented efficiencies to broadcasters through intelligent function integration and the ability to leverage an IT-centric infrastructure. By partnering with Harmonic, the world's leading video infrastructure provider, broadcasters and pay-TV operators can provide the most compelling television experience, including Ultra HDTV, at the lowest TCO, supported by the industry's best service and support."

Featured demonstrations at Harmonic's booth will include:
• A virtualised video infrastructure featuring the new Harmonic VOS™ architecture. The platform enables virtualided media processing, such as Harmonic's new Electra™ XVM integrated software package. Integrating real-time encoding, high-quality branding and graphics, and transport stream playout for broadcast and multiscreen services, Electra XVM offers function integration, increased operational flexibility and unlimited scalability.
• Contribution and distribution solutions including the expanded Ellipse 3000 family of contribution encoders, which now features the industry's first DSNG encoder to support the new DVB Carrier ID (DVB-CID) standard for reducing interference between satellite signals, and the new DVB-S2X specification for improving performance of DVB-S2 satellite digital broadcasting.
• A range of Ultra HD demonstrations, including a real-time Ultra HD encoding and streaming workflow demonstration, powered by Harmonic's HEVC-ready VOS platform, as well as interoperability demonstrations with leading chipset vendors of 2160p50/60 HEVC Main 10 profile encoded Ultra HD streaming.
• IP video innovation with ProMedia® Origin stream packager/server, highlighting delivery of live, VOD and time-shift TV services to all screens.
• Production and playout with collaborative editing and 4K editing on the Harmonic MediaGrid shared storage system, as well as new developments in the Spectrum™ media server product line
• Cable edge solutions, including the NSG™ Pro and new NSG Exo CCAP-compliant platforms. The new NSG Exo distributed CCAP system is one of the industry's first offerings to support a Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) utilizing deep fiber networks, and provides DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS/J-DOCSIS CMTS capabilities now, with universal edgeQAM capabilities coming soon.
