Harmonic has made its VOS360 SaaS platform available on Google Cloud for the first time. The company says the move reinforces benefits for video service providers, including “unparalleled agility, resiliency, security and scalability for a superior viewing experience.”
The SaaS platform speeds up the creation of linear channels, as well as the delivery of sports events and live streams to viewers (and syndication partners). By leveraging VOS360, Harmonic says that operators have creative control over content ingest, scheduling, playout, branding, encoding, monetisation and the creation of channel variants, with “real-time agility.”
Kip Schauer, Global Head of Media and Entertainment Partnerships at Google Cloud, said: “Google Cloud’s highly performant and trusted infrastructure is helping media and entertainment companies develop and distribute content intelligently and at great scale. By bringing its innovative VOS360 platform to Google Cloud, Harmonic enables these businesses to deliver differentiated broadcast and direct-to-consumer streaming experiences that contribute to a growing ecosystem of cloud-native, flexible, and agile media supply chains.”
Shahar Bar, Senior Vice President, Video Products and Corporate Development at Harmonic, commented: “We’re thrilled to announce that we can now offer our market-leading VOS360 SaaS platform on Google Cloud for a wide range of applications.
“Not only is our full tech stack available on Google Cloud, but so are our full DevOps capabilities, providing customers committed to Google Cloud the ability to deploy our full suite of services and cloud technologies. In recent years Google Cloud has placed a strong focus on the Media and Entertainment market, and we’re excited to partner with them to bring more customers to the Cloud.”
