Harmonic to show multiscreen video solutions

Harmonic will introduce enhancements to its ProStream stream processing platform, Carbon Server transcoding software and MediaPrism software suite for multiscreen video delivery at IBC2009.

Harmonic will debut the MediaPrism workflow manager, which controls content as it is ingested, transformed, cached and streamed to a variety of receiving devices. Operators using Harmonic’s MediaPrism suite can take advantage of real-time transcoding and stream-processing solutions and non-real-time technologies including offline capture.

Harmonic also will demonstrate a comprehensive MediaPrism suite of solutions for converged multiscreen video delivery; HD and SD compression and statistical multiplexing enhancements based on the DiviCom Electra 8000 HD/SD MPEG-4 AVC/MPEG-2 platform; and contribution and distribution solutions, including low-latency newsgathering with Ellipse encoders and ProView integrated receiver decoders.

Harmonic's Rhozet business unit will debut its new Carbon QC quality-control module and demonstrate new enhancements for its Carbon Server and Carbon Coder transcoding solutions.
