Harmonic's hybrid on-premises encoding, cloud origin server and delivery technology enables Evoca TV to efficiently and reliably deliver more than 80 channels to subscribers.

Harmonic today announced that Edge Networks has launched its Evoca TV service with an end-to-end platform from Harmonic. The Evoca TV service from Edge Networks combines over-the-air ATSC 3.0 broadcasts with video streaming to reach underserved areas in the U.S. with limited bandwidth access.

Harmonic's hybrid on-premises encoding, cloud origin server and delivery technology enables Evoca TV to efficiently and reliably deliver more than 80 channels to subscribers.  

"To launch a service as unique as Evoca, we needed a forward-thinking technology partner with extensive experience in the broadcast and streaming worlds," said Todd Achilles, president and CEO at Edge Networks. "Harmonic's cutting-edge solutions made them an obvious choice for our service. Together, we've created a service that will simplify expanding Evoca into additional markets around the country."  

Harmonic says its end-to-end solution as provided features the VOS 360 Live Streaming Platform running origin server and delivery functionalities on the public cloud, enabling rapid scaling as Evoca ramps up to extend its streaming service reach.  

On premises is Harmonic's Electra X live video processor, providing exceptional HD and 4K video quality and reducing bandwidth consumption using real-time video optimization techniques.  

"We're entering a new era of television with ATSC 3.0," notes Eric Armstrong, vice president, video sales and services, North America, at Harmonic. "Harmonic is thrilled to be part of this new service, leveraging ATSC 3.0 OTA and broadband delivery paths, while tapping into the flexibility of the cloud, to provide viewers with a game-changing television experience."
