Magyar Telekom deploys Harmonic’s EyeQ

June 13, 2018

Harmonic, a global player in video delivery technology and services, has announced that Magyar Telekom, a telco operator in Hungary, has successfully deployed Harmonic’s EyeQ content-aware encoding solution for its IPTV service. With the EyeQ solution, the operator is able to deliver additional HD channels and realise a 30 per cent bandwidth saving on the aggregated constant bit rate (CBR) core network, without investing in additional network infrastructure.

“When looking for a bandwidth optimization solution for our DOCSIS and ADSL IPTV platforms, the key requirements were high video quality, outstanding reliability and standards compliancy,” said Ferenc Szűcs, TV network senior advisor at Magyar Telekom. “Harmonic’s EyeQ solution not only meets all our requirements today but is also an investment into the future since it can be extended to other delivery platforms and cost-effectively deployed anywhere aggregated video bandwidth is limited by network capacity.”
