March 24, 2015

Harmonic, a specialist in video delivery infrastructure, has unveiled its ProView 7100 – a single-rack, multiformat, integrated receiver-decoder (IRD), transcoder and MPEG stream processor that supports the HEVC standard. As part of an end-to-end HEVC-based video transmission solution offered by Harmonic, the ProView 7100 enables video content and service providers to decode HEVC compressed streams up to 1080p60 resolution, maximising bandwidth efficiency for broadcast service delivery while maintaining pristine video quality.

“The ability to decode HEVC compressed streams is becoming important for video content and service providers as they prepare to deliver high-quality, bandwidth-intensive services like Ultra HD and 4K,” said Bart Spriester, senior vice president, video products, Harmonic. “As the world’s first IRD platform capable of decoding HEVC content, the ProView 7100 continues to prove that it’s the best solution for content reception applications, providing TV operators with the flexibility, scalability, video compression efficiency and low total-cost-of-ownership they need to cost-effectively deliver video offerings with amazing quality now and in the future.”
