SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Ambarella, Inc., the leader in high definition (HD) video compression semiconductors, today announced that Harmonic Inc. (NASDAQ:HLIT - News), a leading provider of digital video and broadband access solutions to cable, satellite, telecom and terrestrial operators worldwide, selected the Ambarella A2 Encoder platform for its DiviCom® Electra(TM) MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) HD and SD encoders.
