Harmonic integrates Dolby Vision into its VOS and XOS solutions
Harmonic has recently announced that they have integrated Dolby Vision into its VOS cloud streaming platform and XOS software-based appliance to streamline UHD/HDR live production.
“UHD HDR is a quantum leap forward in picture quality, and Dolby Vision has become the standard for delivering more realistic, compelling and immersive video experiences”, said Stephane Cloirec, Vice President, video appliances, at Harmonic. “Supporting Dolby Vision demonstrates our commitment to streamlining and democratizing UHD HDR live delivery, helping operators embrace the UHD HDR revolution and bring outstanding video experiences to consumers”.
With support for Dolby Vision, Harmonic’s cloud streaming SaaS and software-based solutions can reduce capex for broadcasters and streaming providers through a workflow that automates and simplifies live HDR video delivery.
