TTcomm Optimizes Satellite Delivery With Integrated Solution From Harmonic
Integrates Electra and ProStream
August 19, 2014
SAN JOSE, CALIF. —Harmonic announced that TTcomm, one of
the largest suppliers of teleport satellite services in Central and Eastern
Europe, has selected an integrated video processing solution from Harmonic to
support its satellite television services. The Harmonic solution was purchased from JBD S.A., a major TV equipment
supplier in Poland.
The solution leverages Harmonic’s Electra universal
encoder, integrated with Flex dual decoder module, to provide MPEG-2
and MPEG-4 AVC encoding for up to four statistically multiplexed SD and HD
services within a single chassis. The
encoder features a scalable architecture that will grow as TTcomm’s market
The solution integrates Electra encoders with Harmonic
ProStream stream processor for statistical multiplexing of MPEG-2 and
MPEG-4 streams to increase bandwidth efficiency without impairing video
quality. Utilizing the ProStream processor, the operator can support up to 64
services per statistically multiplexed pool, 16 pools per platform, and three
pools within a single transport stream. The robust, extensible, and scalable
ProStream processor supports multiplexing and scrambling of DVB Simulcrypt as
well as AES scrambling applications. With a range of widely implemented
industry protocols, the ProStream solution’s scrambling technology guarantees
the protection of TTcomm’s video content.
The solution of Electra encoders and ProStream processors is controlled by
Harmonic’s NMX Digital Service Manager video network management
solution, which provides mass configuring, monitoring, and automated redundancy
in centralized or distributed architectures.
Harmonic will showcase its comprehensive line of market-leading solutions that
optimize the production and delivery of high-value video services in the
broadcast, pay-TV, and new media environments at stand 1.B20 during IBC2014 in
Amsterdam, Sept. 12-16.
