Consumer demand for high-quality video on every screen is skyrocketing. Broadcasters and video service providers need to launch channels faster, lower costs and improve video quality on connected devices. At KOBA 2019, Harmonic will showcase its unified video delivery solutions for all deployment scenarios, including SaaS, cloud and hybrid environments. Harmonic's software-based media processing and streaming solutions allow broadcasters and service providers to distribute broadcast and multiscreen video faster, simpler, and with better video quality, up to UHD HDR.

"The APAC video streaming market is seeing staggering growth, with OTT revenues predicted to reach $48 billion in 2024, up from $21 billion just last year," said Tony Berthaud, vice president of sales and video services, APAC at Harmonic.
