At the SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo in Atlanta, Harmonic (NASDAQ:HLIT) will demonstrate virtualized cable access and video streaming technologies, including scalable gigabit Internet and multiscreen video.

"Increased competition from OTT service providers and shifting consumer behaviors have created a challenge and opportunity for global cable operators," said Nimrod Ben-Natan, senior vice president and general manager of Harmonic's Cable Access Business. "Operators today need to be nimble, reducing costs while delivering market-leading broadband and video services. At SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, we will demonstrate how new smarter software-based cable access and video streaming solutions enable operators to meet this challenge with unprecedented scalability, simplicity and efficiency."

Harmonic will unveil new capabilities for its CableOS virtualized cable access solution at Expo. The CableOS solution is a software-based cable modem termination system (CMTS) and end-to-end Remote PHY system, designed to support both centralized and distributed architectures.

Harmonic will also showcase images featuring NASA content from a 24/7 UltraHD HDR video streaming service, powered by the VOS 360 Video SaaS solution for media processing and delivery. In addition, Harmonic will demonstrate how operators can improve consumer quality of experience through artificial intelligence(AI)-based technology in the company's EyeQ content-aware encoding solution.
