Electra VS - Harmonic Inc
CO N V E RG E N T V I D EO S YS T E M
The Electra VS convergent video system (formerly ViBE VS7000) from Harmonic is a nextgeneration compression platform for all-IP environments, encompassing mission-critical applications
including live broadcast-quality encoding and faster-than-real-time file transcoding.
™
®
Tailored for all-new convergent applications such as multiscreen and over-the-top (OTT) service delivery, as well as traditional IPTV and
IP/cable delivery, the Electra VS platform enables video operators to expand the reach of their services with unprecedented versatility.
The software-based system, which leverages the Harmonic VOS™ Flex operating system, is available as a turnkey solution with hardware
provided, as software only for running on standard COTS servers, or as fully virtualized for data center environments.
Superior Video Quality
End-user quality starts with the video itself. Whether it is delivering HD to the living room or streaming content to mobile devices equipped
with high-resolution displays, service providers seek to offer their viewers the best possible video experience. Leveraging more than 15
years of best-in-class video quality and innovation in video compression algorithms, the Electra VS meets this requirement with stunning
pictures for all delivery networks.
Workflow Flexibility
Every video operator’s environment is unique, which is why the Electra VS possesses the flexibility for individual operators to design
workflows that meet their exact needs. A simple yet powerful, integrated Workflow Builder tool allows the creation of live, file-based and
mixed workflows — for any kind of network — with the click of a mouse.
Multiscreen, Multi-Codec, Multiformat
With new video formats emerging at a brisk pace, delivering content to multiple networks is a real challenge. Supporting the major audio/
video codecs and latest adaptive streaming formats, the Electra VS readily adapts to IPTV and cable delivery, as well as OTT live and
video-on-demand (VOD) streaming. HEVC encoding is available for both live and file workflows in CBR, VBR and statistical multiplexing
applications. Ultra HD processing with HDR support is also available for live and file applications, making tomorrow’s applications easily
achievable with the Electra VS.
