Harmonic has announced the launch of its new 24/7 “ambient” OTT video streaming service, the Harmonic Video Network (HVN), which will showcase 4K footage shot in locations from California to Costa Rica.
Designed to provide video engineers with “a valuable source of information related to video delivery infrastructure,” the HVN-1 channel will focus on workflow, content creation, channel playout and distribution, video service delivery, cable edge and multiscreen issues.
“HVN showcases Harmonic innovation, leveraging our solutions for production, playout and delivery as the technology behind the channels,” says Peter Alexander, chief marketing officer at Harmonic. “We’re demonstrating the new economies of creating sophisticated branded channels with automated management, delivered over the top. We can show the industry how to dramatically reduce total cost of ownership while accelerating deployment of new services — from their own facilities or from the cloud — with fabulous video quality.”
This year’s TV Connect (28 – 30 April 2015 ExCel, London) sees a wealth of first rate keynotes, panels and demonstrations exploring the future of 4K, such as the keynote session, “Driving Demand for 4K in the Home” by Dune HD’s Richard Reis. Click here to download the full brochure.
