The ProStream 8000 makes it possible to increase revenue from subscription services, video on demand and specialty programs such as sports.
Harmonic has unveiled a multichannel digital mosaic system that seamlessly integrates with video headend, transport and customer premises equipment now deployed by cable, satellite, telco and other video service providers.
The new IP-based ProStream 8000 efficiently tiles several channels within a single high-quality digital video stream, enhancing the overall viewer experience with a composite multi-program view. In addition, the system makes it possible to increase revenue from subscription services, video on demand and advertising by enabling promotions and previews, regional customizations and additional paid programming formats, as well as specialty program groupings, including sports, news and children's channels.
The ProStream 8000’s MPEG-in/MPEG-out operation enables seamless integration with a service provider's existing digital television infrastructure, including middleware applications, program guides, compression and multiplexing systems. Each multichannel mosaic is transmitted as yet another channel in the line-up to ensure complete compatibility with existing set-top boxes and televisions.
