Harmonic adds forward error correction to Prostream 1000
Harmonic has added forward error correction (FEC) support to the ProStream 1000 stream processing platform.
Forward error correction is a critical requirement for high-quality video transmission in IP-based networks. Harmonic's FEC engine supports ProMPEG FEC COP3 transmission and reception of up to 128 services in a 1RU platform. It minimizes packet drops and reordering.Introduced in 2006, the ProStream platform is a multifunctional stream processing system, capable of being configured to support FEC, multiplexing, DiviTrackIP statistical multiplexing, ProCipher scrambling and descrambling, Mentor re-encoding, and single frequency network (SFN) transmission over IP.For more information, visit:
