Finland’s leading pay-TV operator DNA has deployed a complete OTT solution from Harmonic for its DNA TV multiscreen service.
Systems integration for the service extension is being provided by Mediatrade Finland.
The deployment will allow DNA to deliver live TV channels and VOD content to more than 200,000 subscribers on a wide range of devices.
Commenting on the development, Pekka Jääskeläinen, head of broadband and entertainment services at DNA, said: “In the OTT environment, device types, protocols and formats are constantly evolving. Our goal was to partner with a video infrastructure provider that offers a straightforward approach to OTT preparation and distribution, with flexibility, video quality and efficiency being absolutely critical.
“Harmonic is a quality provider that offers a unified solution for OTT multiscreen services. By supporting a broad range of multiscreen applications, with easy software upgrades as they become available, Harmonic enables us to be successful in OTT delivery.”
Ian Graham, VP of sales, EMEA, at Harmonic, added: “DNA is a longstanding Harmonic customer. The reason why our video infrastructure solutions are chosen time and time again by leading telco operators is because we offer unparalleled reliability and video quality, along with extensive OTT multiscreen deployment expertise.
“With an integrated infrastructure solution from Harmonic, operators such as DNA can dramatically extend their reach, providing customers with more channels and better quality content on an ever-growing number of screens.”
