Danish Telco and TV Service Provider TDC to Deliver Time-Shift TV Services with Harmonic Multiscreen Solutions
TDC, Denmark’s principal telecom company, has deployed a comprehensive multiscreen solution from Harmonic to deliver time-shift services with catch-up TV content through its YouSee and TDC brands. The total solution includes Harmonic’s ProMedia suite of multiscreen production and preparation applications, NMX Digital Service Manager video network management solution and MediaGrid shared storage systems. Leveraging its extensive range of adaptive bitrate technologies, Harmonic’s solution enables TDC to deliver high-quality streams of 100 channels to more than 1.4 million subscribers on TVs, PCs, tablets and smartphones.
“To enrich our live and VOD offering with catch-up TV content, we needed a new video infrastructure solution that was flexible, scalable and capable of supporting a variety of devices, including our existing base of deployed set-top boxes,” said Tom Eltzholtz, director, TDC. “Only Harmonic was able to provide us with a one-stop shop for HTTP packaging, recording and storage, making multiscreen delivery seamless.” This powerful scalability will allow TDC to easily expand its multiscreen services with time-shft TV, control CDN costs and generate additional revenue streams in the future.
