Harmonic ProStream 8000 delivers channel navigation
The Harmonic ProStream 8000 can construct a single MPEG/IP transport stream that includes a single video stream, up to 20 audio channels and the associated metadata.
The Harmonic ProStream 8000 Digital Mosaic Solution lets operators generate a navigation screen with multiple SD video thumbnails and a still image or video elementary screen as a background.
The solution provides a simple, flexible IP-based architecture for national and local channel navigation, on-demand promotions, sports and news split-screens. By receiving and producing content through Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) I/O interfaces, mosaic video output can be generated without additional decoders or encoders.
The system is a single rack unit (1RU) PC-based platform that decodes and resizes embedded videos to produce video tiles or thumbnails. It also constructs a single MPEG/IP transport stream that includes a single video stream, up to 20 audio channels and the associated metadata.
