Harmonic announces VOS Software cluster

Harmonic, a provider of video delivery technology and services, announced the next evolution of its VOS offerings, addressing the need for agility and adaptability technology for OTT and IPTV deployments. VOS SW Cluster is a comprehensive software application that embeds media processing, including ingest, playout, compression, encryption, packaging, and origin, and supports both cloud and bare metal compute environments. It can be used by video content and service providers of any size and on any platform for the origination and delivery of IPTV and OTT services. The VOS SW Cluster solution has already been successfully deployed by a leading telecommunications service provider in the Asia-Pacific region.
“Being successful in today’s media environment is highly dependent upon how quickly you can adapt,” said Tim Warren, senior VP and CTO, video business, at Harmonic. “The VOS SW Cluster offering expands upon the flexibility and agility of our VOS Cloud media processing application, enabling operators to be even more nimble in using data center resources. With this solution, video content and service providers can handle every step of the media processing chain using datacenters, the cloud, or both to launch services faster and deliver high-quality IPTV and OTT content on every screen.”
As an infrastructure-independent media processing application, the VOS SW Cluster offering makes it easy for operators to switch between bare metal datacenter computing (e.g., off-the-shelf IT), public clouds (e.g., AWS, Microsoft Azure), and private clouds. Having an elastic and always up-to-date media workflow enables operators to launch services faster, scale seamlessly with operational efficiency, and ensure consistent functionality across all deployment environments. With a simple intent-driven user interface, operators have more time to focus on service innovation and test new service offerings. The VOS SW Cluster application enables operators to keep pace with the latest OTT workflows, including live publishing to social media online platforms, streaming VOD from live and file sources, groundbreaking Ultra-HD OTT with HDR, and low-latency delivery via the CMAF specification.
The VOS SW Cluster solution joins Harmonic’s VOS family, which helps video content and service providers succeed in the evolving OTT market by leveraging the latest advancements in software and cloud technology. The VOS family also includes VOS 360 media processing SaaS, which utilises the VOS SW Cluster solution, and VOS Engine, a container-based software module. The VOS 360 offering is part of a growing line of SaaS offerings hosted, maintained and monitored by Harmonic that deliver the company’s media processing and delivery technologies as a service.
