Unifying the entire media processing chain, VOS Cloud and
VOS 360 allow broadcasters, pay-TV operators, and content
providers to launch new video channels fast, and to run simpler,
leaner operations. The VOS Cloud software can be installed on
any hardware platform in the headend or data center, or as part of
any private or public cloud deployment environment (Figure 2).
VOS 360 is a fully hosted service that retains the exceptional
video quality, reliability, and 24/7 support that Harmonic is
known for. Encoding and transcoding on both offerings is
performed by the Harmonic PURE Compression Engine™, an
advanced, soft ware-based technology that supports SD, HD, and
UHD formats and MPEG- 2, MPEG- 4 AVC, and HEVC codecs for
broadcast and OT T multiscreen delivery. The PURE Compression
Engine utilizes Harmonic’s market-leading expertise in video
compression algorithms and multi-pass encoding to provide
superior video quality at the lowest possible bitrates.
Users can also employ EyeQ™ real-time video optimization,
Harmonic’s optional enhancement for PURE Compression.
Leveraging the function of the human visual system, EyeQ
delivers bandwidth savings of up to 50% while ensuring that
your viewers can watch pristine video on their device of
choice — even over constrained OTT/ABR networks.
Knowledge is power. If you want to know more about how
