Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) said that TDC, Denmark`s principal telecom company, has deployed a comprehensive multiscreen solution from Harmonic to deliver time-shift services with catch-up TV content through its YouSee and TDC brands.
The total solution includes Harmonic`s ProMedia suite of multiscreen production and preparation applications, NMX Digital Service Manager video network management solution, and MediaGrid shared storage systems.
Harmonic`s ProMedia Origin stream packager and streaming video server and MediaGrid shared storage system are tightly integrated to optimize the delivery of catch-up TV content for TDC`s multiscreen service. ProMedia Origin enables sophisticated adaptive stream encapsulation and encryption processes for a variety of HTTP adaptive bitrate protocols, as well as high throughput multi-format streaming from a unified platform. Together with Harmonic`s MediaGrid, they enable independent scaling of storage capacity, bandwidth, and streaming capability. This powerful scalability will allow TDC to easily expand its multiscreen services with time-shift TV, control CDN costs, and generate additional revenue streams in the future.
Harmonic`s NMX video network management solution centrally controls the ProMedia Package and Origin server, enhancing scalability while simplifying deployment and management of TDC`s multiscreen services.
Harmonic is the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure for emerging television and video services. The company`s production-ready innovation enables content and service providers to efficiently create, prepare, and deliver differentiated services for television and new media video platforms.
