Harmonic Inc. HLIT recently announced its collaboration with Primary Video Stream Contribution (“PVSC”) to deploy its VOS 360 Channel Origination & Distribution Platform for the delivery of live video content across the globe with utmost flexibility. This cutting-edge technology comes as a boon for cable operators, especially at a time when customers are relying on a streamlined network infrastructure for increased efficiency.

With industry rich experience of more than 25 years, Harmonic has been paving the transformational path for video and cable companies with avant-garde solutions. These smarter offerings not only aid cable operators to deploy breakthrough gigabit solutions but also simplify streaming experiences on the back of efficient cloud platforms.
