Turkish multimedia group launches OTT streaming with Harmonic solutions
Doğuş Media Group is relying on the Harmonic’s ProMedia suite of multiscreen production and preparation applications.
Turkish multimedia firm Doğuş Media Group (DMG) has chosen a comprehensive multiscreen solution from Harmonic to power TVYO, its new OTT platform.
Harmonic's ProMedia suite of multiscreen production and preparation applications, WFS file-based workflow engine and MediaGrid shared storage systems provide TVYO with the ability to deliver high-quality streams of 12 on-air broadcast channels, including live, VOD, and catch-up TV content, to any consumer device.
Integrated with an existing Harmonic Spectrum media server, Harmonic's ProMedia Live real-time transcoders convert baseband SDI signals to multiple high-quality adaptive bitrate streams optimized for the TVYO platform.
ProMedia Live increases the efficiency of DMG's streaming video workflow by splitting encoding across multiple machines. The platform also handles a variety of metadata information — such as language, captions, and ad signaling/insertion — on input and output.
ProMedia Live works with Harmonic's ProMedia Package to enable sophisticated transcoding, encapsulation and encryption processes from a unified platform.
