LAS VEGAS—Harmonic is embracing the media industry’s migration toward IP-centric infrastructures by liberating its software. This year’s NAB Show marks the launch of the San Jose, Calif., company’s new VOS line of virtualized technology offerings.
“It’s more agile from both a deployment and a development point of view,” said Harmonic President and CEO Patrick Harshman at the company’s Saturday pre-NAB Show presser.
The first VOS offering, debuting at this year’s NAB, is Electra XVM, which combines ProMedia encoding with ChannelPort graphics, branding and playout capability in a single software package.
Harshman said the initiative was a new direction for Harmonic, a public company with around 1,100 employees, market cap of around $696 million and 2013 net income of $37 million on revenues of $462 million.
