Commenting on the development, Edgars Goncars, head of TV at LMT, said: “Live events, which can incur a significant peak in viewers especially for TV applications, put considerable stress on our mobile network.
“Harmonic’s EyeQ solution allows us to offer the best video experience to subscribers while reducing the amount of bandwidth we need and lowering our delivery costs, while increasing the quality of experience. With EyeQ, we have the ability to scale up during popular live events and deliver pristine video quality, which is a critical factor for our continued business growth.”
Ian Graham, senior vice president of international sales and video services at Harmonic, added: “LMT has one of the most efficient mobile networks and high-quality OTT offerings on the market, and that’s in part thanks to its forward-thinking technology strategy.
“Since LMT’s OTT service is sent to TVs, the operator needed a high-quality delivery solution that could scale. Our EyeQ solution will ensure that LMT’s subscribers never miss a moment of exciting content due to bandwidth limitation or video-quality issues.”
