GTPL Hathway has recently deployed a next-generation software-based unified video headend system from Harmonic. At the heart of the solution is Harmonic’s Electra X2 advanced media processor that supports MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC, and HEVC encoding for both traditional cable television and live OTT multiscreen services, saving GTPL Hathway significant space and power consumption.
Harmonic provides GTPL Hathway with a complete headend solution for CATV and live OTT, with distribution of up to 650 cable television channels and 50 OTT channels from a unified management system. The cable operator can also support advanced features such as graphic overlay and scroll insertion, which are integral to their business. GTPL Hathway is currently delivering live TV and has plans to explore catch-up TV, nPVR, and 4K video in the future to provide an even better viewing experience to subscribers.
