Harmonic ProStream 2000 completes Microsoft Mediaroom IPTV testing
Harmonic said Oct. 21 that its ProStream 2000 digital video splicer has successfully completed conformance testing for real-time splicing of national MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) video streams of the Microsoft Mediaroom Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) platform.
A key component of Harmonic's IP-based ad insertion solution, fully compliant with the SCTE 35 and SCTE 30 standards, the software-based ProStream 2000 platform offers scalability and can be easily integrated into an IPTV operator's network.
The test for the ProStream 2000 platform was administered by Microsoft as part of the Microsoft Mediaroom Interoperability and Qualification Lab (IQ Lab) program, which is intended to enable the ongoing interoperability and compliance of headend equipment used in deployments of Microsoft Mediaroom.
