Harmonic, a provider of video compression solutions, has surpassed 100,000 channels shipped with its Electra broadcast encoder family. Since its launch in 2004, the Electra platform has been deployed by broadcast, satellite, telco, and cable operators worldwide to deliver SD, HD, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4 AVC services.
“The video compression market is very competitive and Harmonic’s 100,000 channel milestone is a testament to the great team at Harmonic.” said Michelle Abraham, senior analyst at SNL Kagan. “Furthermore, the company’s latest virtualised video vision illustrates that they are not resting on their laurels. Compression gains in conjunction with functional integration is a requirement to compete in this era of fast-paced technological advances.”
