Harmonic will be showcasing integrated systems to demonstrate a complete workflow for over-the-top (OTT) services at the upcoming BIRTV 2012 show in China on August 22 to 25.
At the front end of the workflow, MediaDeck and MediaCenter media servers with ChannelPort systems will facilitate playout of the SDI source with integrated channel branding and master control switching. ChannelPort is an integrated channel playout device for Spectrum media server systems. Combining channel branding and master control switching with clip playout on the industry’s most trusted media server platform, the modular ChannelPort enables broadcasters, content owners, and service providers to speed the cost-effective deployment of new television channels through a simple incremental upgrade to their existing Spectrum architecture.
