Dogus Launches New OTT Streaming Service With Harmonic
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT), the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, today announced that Doğuş Media Group (DMG) has chosen a comprehensive multiscreen solution from Harmonic to power TVYO, its new OTT platform. Harmonic's ProMedia suite of multiscreen production and preparation applications, WFS file-based workflow engine, and MediaGrid shared storage systems provide TVYO with the performance, reliability, and scalability to deliver high-quality streams of 12 on-air broadcast channels, including live, VOD, and catch-up TV content, to any consumer device. Since its launch, TVYO.com and its mobile apps have become the leading all-in-one VOD service platform in Turkey, registering 5 million unique monthly visitors, more than 1 million downloaded mobile apps, and more than 150 million viewed videos.
Integrated with an existing Harmonic Spectrum media server, Harmonic's ProMedia Live real-time transcoders convert baseband SDI signals to multiple high-quality adaptive bitrate streams optimized for the TVYO platform. ProMedia Live significantly increases the efficiency of DMG's streaming video workflow by splitting encoding across multiple machines. The platform also handles a variety of metadata information — such as language, captions, and ad signaling/insertion — on input and output, further simplifying operations. ProMedia Live works flawlessly with Harmonic's ProMedia Package to enable sophisticated transcoding, encapsulation, and encryption processes from a unified platform.
