Harmonic has announced that M6 Group, operator of multiple TV channels in France, will upgrade its ingest, playout and storage infrastructure to a media-over-IP solution from Harmonic. Offering support for the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards for delivery over IP networks and SMPTE 2022-7 for seamless protection switching, Harmonic’s playout and storage solutions will streamline the broadcaster’s transition to all-IP video delivery.
“Having relied upon Harmonic’s video production and playout solutions for over a decade, we know firsthand the reliability and innovation they provide,” said Mathias Bejanin, CTO at M6 Group. “When the infrastructure goes live, we will be leading the market in global deployments of SMPTE ST 2110 and SMPTE 2022-7 protection, setting the benchmark for workflow modernisation, efficiency and redundancy.”
“The transition toward an all-IP workflow is rapidly gaining traction in our industry based on the significant workflow efficiencies and cost savings that it provides,” said Ian Graham, senior vice president of sales, EMEA and LATAM, at Harmonic. “We’re excited to support M6 Group and unleash the full power of IP for playout and storage workflows utilizing the SMPTE ST 2110 and SMPTE 2022-7 standards, which are supported by Spectrum X, the industry’s trusted media server.”
