LAS VEGAS -- Harmonic Inc. (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced the Rhozet™ Workflow System (WFS), a new task-based workflow engine for automated management of the video asset transformation process. WFS improves scalability, efficiency and reliability for media companies’ most demanding transcoding needs with an open and distributed workflow. The new Rhozet WFS supports Harmonic’s Rhozet Quality Control System (QCS) to incorporate file-based quality testing and automated compliance as part of the transcoding process. WFS and QCS will be showcased at Harmonic’s booth #SU7213 during NAB 2010 in Las Vegas.

WFS manages large-scale networks of Carbon Coder™ transcoder nodes in a distributed “farm” configuration. The distributed nature of WFS allows for automated processing of high-volume transcoding tasks, failover support, job distribution, job prioritization, dynamic load balancing, file transfer, status monitoring, and job notification.

For even greater flexibility, WFS users can create comprehensive workflows that incorporate a variety of processing tasks and conditional behaviors tailored to meet their specific requirements. Additionally, with its extensive APIs and software developer kit (SDK), WFS can manage the complete video asset transformation process by integrating third-party applications and other Harmonic video processing solutions.

“Harmonic’s new Rhozet Workflow System, combined with the Rhozet Quality Control System, provides complete file-based workflow management, including transcoding, quality control, and delivery. Its open architecture, resiliency and failover support makes it ideal for managing the high-volume workflows found in professional studios and broadcast facilities,” said Jon Robbins, Rhozet Product Manager, Harmonic Inc. “Harmonic’s Rhozet family of transcoding solutions continues to lead the industry in enterprise-level transcoding, by successfully addressing the key concern of our customers—how to achieve cost-effective, high-quality transcoding in a reliable and scalable environment.”
