Swisscom Expands With Harmonic Scalable Transcoding
SAN JOSE, CALIF.: Harmonic
announced that telecom provider Swisscom has chosen Harmonic’s ProMedia Live
platform. ProMedia Live real-time is a carrier-grade application featuring
Harmonic’s H.264 codec, allowing Swisscom to transcode and deliver SD and HD
video in the most popular mobile and Internet formats.
Hosted on the new ProMedia 1104 application server,
ProMedia Live provides Swisscom with real-time video processing and encoding
with enhanced H.264 video codec technology for creating high-quality Internet
video streams. It transcodes baseband SD and HD or MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 AVC content
to multiple H.264 streams optimized for adaptive bit rate streaming formats,
Live Streaming, MicrosoftSmooth
Streaming, and 3GPP. ProMedia Live's flexible, software-based IP architecture
is based on independently scalable nodes that can be increased to support new
channels as Swisscom’s encoding needs continue to grow.
The ProMedia Live transcoders are managed by Harmonic’s NMX
Digital Service Manager, a software-based network management system that
provides full control over the complete network. Swisscom will be able to create,
modify, and manage service lineups with NMX.
