Harmonic is redefining video delivery with solutions that address the trends driving the future of the industry, including the growing demand for high definition and on-demand video delivery to any device—TV, the PC and mobile devices. End-to-End Our comprehensive solutions encompass all segments of the video delivery chain: asset creation, ingest, distribution, delivery, navigation and service management. Harmonic solutions are today in use by video service providers around the world, across all markets: cable, satellite, telco, terrestrial and Internet. IP-Based HD and SD compression, stream processing and asset management solutions with native IP support allow operators to intelligently manage service flows across their networks while maximizing network bandwidth and operational efficiencies. Our stream processing platform offers unparalleled versatility, supporting a wide variety of functions including re-encoding, multiplexing, encryption, bulk scrambling/ descrambling, targeted advertisement insertion, forward error correction and SFN over IP. Harmonic is also actively working with its cable customers to deliver IPTV-over- cable solutions that leverage the versatility of IP with our universal edgeQAM integrated into a DOCSIS 3.0/M-CMTS environment to provide a more compelling user experience while also lowering cost and complexity.
Contribution/Distribution Solutions Harmonic provides leading broadcasters and service providers worldwide with outstanding solutions for fixed and mobile contribution, for both event coverage and on-the-spot news coverage from digital satellite newsgathering (DSNG) vans. Harmonic’s portfolio of products for this market is built on a foundation of technical innovation, and includes early implementation of BISS scrambling for content protection, market- leading DVB-S2 products, and the first true 1-RU MPEG-2 contribution encoder, introduced in 1999.   For fixed contribution over IP and legacy ATM/PDH/SDH networks, the Ellipse 1000 encoder provides a professional, high-quality solution. Compact and versatile, the Ellipse 1000 simultaneously encodes video feeds as MPEG-2 SD 4:2:0/4:2:2 and MPEG-4 AVC SD 4:2:0 and can be upgraded via firmware to MPEG-4 AVC HD as well. The Ellipse 1000 does not require external multiplexers or PSI generators, making it a cost- effective solution for migrating from MPEG-2 CBR to MPEG-4 AVC CBR encoding schemes
Satellite Harmonic is the preferred partner for leading DBS and DTH operators seeking standards-compliant solutions that provide superior performance while lowering expenses. Committed to being a technology leader that delivers innovative and versatile solutions for next generation video services including high definition and on-demand, Harmonic understands the building blocks of the satellite video infrastructure and the fact that many DBS operators must contemplate the complex process of upgrading or replacing their existing infrastructure (while managing customer expectations) in order to thrive in a competitive market. Compression The latest generation of Harmonic’s industry-leading Electra encoders, the versatile Electra 8000, allows satellite operators to increase the number of channels per transponder while also delivering superior video quality. Capable of supporting up to 4 HD or SD channels per 1-RU in AVC or MPEG-2, using CBR or VBR, the Electra 8000 offers an agile platform that builds on successive generations of best-in-class compression platforms. Statistical Multiplexing   In addition, Harmonic’s IP-based distributed statistical multiplexing solution, DiviTrackIP™, makes it possible for any encoder anywhere in the network may efficiently be part of any multiplex, essentially creating a “virtual headend”, providing significant operational advantages, cost reduction and bandwidth efficiency improvement. The combination of Harmonic’s patent pending technology and industry standard solutions for error correction (Pro-MPEG COP3/SMPTE 2022) allows operators to deploy remote statistical multiplexing solutions over almost any IP network. 
DVB-T Harmonic’s encoding, multiplexing and network/service management technology is deployed in the world’s most successful DVB-T service—Freeview in the UK. Nozema, the largest nationwide terrestrial broadcaster in The Netherlands is powered by Harmonic’s headend products, helping Holland become the first country in the world to switch off their analog television services.
