Today, Harmonic announced at the NAB Show in Las Vegas that it has completed compliance testing for its universal encoder and transcoder for the Microsoft Mediaroom IPTV platform.

Microsoft implemented tests on Harmonic’s Electra 8000 multichannel HD/SD universal encoder and its ProStream 4000 multi-screen transcoder.

The tests were part of the Microsoft Mediaroom Interoperability and Qualification Lab (IQ Lab) program, which was designed to enable the ongoing interoperability and compliance of headend equipment used in deployments of Microsoft Mediaroom.

Harmonic said it powers the video headend infrastructure for a majority of Microsoft Mediaroom customers worldwide.
