Harmonic bringing VOD to SES Americom’s IP-Prime
Harmonic Inc.  is developing a VOD solution for SES Americom's IP-Prime service that will utilize Harmonic's StreamLiner 2000 video servers, CLEARcut storage encoding solution and Ingest Gateway workflow software.
The solution will enable U.S. telcos and broadband service providers that use the IP-Prime IPTV service to offer VOD to their customers.
IP-Prime is a telco TV service that offers more than 275 video channels. With the introduction of Harmonic's on-demand platform, SES Americom will expand the offering to include local and national on-demand content.
The CLEARcut, Ingest Gateway and StreamLiner offerings are part of Harmonic's IP-based on-demand video delivery platform, which supports VOD, near VOD, time-shifted TV, nPVR, barker channels and ad insertion.
