Harmonic unveils MPEG-2 splicing

Harmonic has announced enhancements to its IP-enabled ProStream 1000 stream processing platform, with the addition of support for MPEG-2 SD digital program insertion (DPI).

The ProStream platform is easily incorporated as part of any digital turnaround architecture and offers operators a solution for integrating national, targeted and local advertisement insertion capabilities into their video services.

It supports standard digital ad insertion protocols (SCTE 30 and SCTE 35) and is designed to interoperate with third-party systems. Combined with Harmonic’s IP-enabled CLEARcut offline content preparation solution and StreamLiner video servers, the ProStream 1000 with DPI provides users a complete, one-stop solution for seamless, real-time splicing of MPEG-2 SD video streams.

The company offers a multichannel MPEG-4 AVC digital splicing solution and now is adding support for MPEG-2 to its portfolio. Its IP-enabled, single-rack unit ProStream 1000 solution delivers headend-in-a-box capability, supporting MPEG remultiplexing, scrambling, descrambling, re-encoding, digital ad insertion, single frequency network (SFN) transmission over IP, distributed statistical multiplexing over IP, and forward error correction.
