Harmonic and WISI Communications have announced a partnership that provides cable operators with next-generation cable access solutions.
Harmonic has presented its new end-to-end ‘all software, all off the shelf hardware’, ‘universal software platform for channel prep’ VOS at an Amsterdam press conference.
Harmonic (Hall1.B20) will demonstrate new software-defined video delivery that can be virtualised.
Harmonic president and chief executive Patrick Harshman says a global slowdown in the company’s video business led to “disappointing” results in the second quarter.
Harmonic is to showcase a comprehensive range of solutions designed to bring increased operational efficiencies and cost savings to service providers and operators in the broadband, cable, and satellite industries.
Harmonic said it sees an improvement in demand from both satellite and telco pay-TV providers.
Harmonic has appointed Everth Flores as senior director, global accounts and business development, for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).
Harmonic has appointed Frank Montalto as the company’s regional VP for North American cable and telco and Spencer Hodson as the company’s VP of sales strategy, operations, and enablement.
Video delivery infrastructure specialist Harmonic is concentrating on the production and delivery of high-value video services in the multiscreen environment.
Harmonic dipped slightly in the first quarter, following the sale of its Cable Access HFC business.
