TV Connect 2014: Harmonic to Showcase IPTV 2.0

Harmonic will showcase its IPTV 2.0 solution during TV Connect London, March 18-20, at stand 155. Harmonic’s IPTV 2.0 solution is a next-generation video delivery framework that simplifies the migration to an all-HTTP adaptive bitrate (ABR) delivery architecture. Harmonic’s unique IPTV 2.0 solution provides IPTV, cable, and over-the-top (OTT) operators with a unified platform for live and on-demand services, lowering an operator’s capital and operating expenses while optimizing video quality across all networks and on all screens, including TVs and set-top boxes. The Harmonic IPTV 2.0 solution was recently deployed by Totalmovie, a Grupo Salinas company and leading video streaming and OTT service, to power its new live TV streaming service spanning 40 countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

“Our IPTV 2.0 solution offers pay-TV service providers a strategy to cost-effectively meet the increasing subscriber demand for high-quality video services on any screen,” says Thierry Fautier, vice president of solutions marketing at Harmonic. “The flexible, scalable solution supports a wide range of devices, networks, protocols, and third-party technologies, enabling a smooth migration towards the long term vision of an all-HTTP ABR delivery architecture to millions of subscribers. The market demand is high for this type of streamlined architecture, which has already been pioneered in an OTT environment.”
