Harmonic supports China’s new UHD standard

Shenzhen Topway Video Communication, a China-based cable operator, has deployed Harmonic’s live ultra HD (UHD) video processing solution to power its broadcast and over-the-top (OTT) services.

Tony Berthaud, vice-president of Harmonic’s sales and video service in APAC, claimed that its solutions are the first in the industry to support AVS2 — also known as the new UHD Chinese Standard.

On top of ingesting, Harmonic live UHD can expand high dynamic range (HDR) tone and deliver QoE to end-users.

“Our goal is to be one of the first service providers in China to deliver UHD public broadcasts and bring an enhanced, higher-resolution entertainment experience to viewers,” said Wen Zhiqiang, assistant manager at Shenzhen Topway Video Communication.

In areas where bandwidth is limited, Harmonic’s Electra XOS live video processor is deployed to deliver exceptional video quality. The solution is brought to life through AI-based innovations, fine-tuned Intel processors and expertise in video algorithms.

Furthermore, it supports UHD statistical multiplexing, HDR processing, uncompressed and compressed IP inputs, and integrated packaging to simplify live video workflows for service providers.

Berthaud added: “As cable operators look to address the demand for UHD video, Harmonic’s software-centric, cloud-deployable video processing solutions set the benchmark for flexibility and innovation.”
