Harmonic signed to SuperSoccer
INDONESIA: Indonesian football website SuperSoccer has selected Harmonic’s VOS 360 SaaS cloud media processing solution to enable it to live stream matches to its subscribers, including those contested in the Italian Serie A league and the UK’s FA Cup. Hosted in the public cloud and maintained by Harmonic, the solution reportedly offers speed and flexibility to the online streaming service which aims to broadcast more than 60 live games each month in HD at low bitrates.
‘Being a relatively new OTT operator, we were looking for a video infrastructure solution with little to no CAPEX (capital expenditures) investment,’ said Mirwan Suwarso, director at SuperSoccer. ‘The VOS 360 cloud service handles the entire workflow for our live OTT service – including ingest, transcoding, packaging and delivery – enabling our technical staff to focus on improving the app delivery experience for audiences. We especially love the flexibility that the VOS 360 service provides, in terms of allowing us to control multiple profile bit rates and video quality to ensure the best possible live streaming experience for our customers.’
‘As a pure OTT player in the Indonesian market focusing on sports content, SuperSoccer needed to work with a trusted video infrastructure provider experienced in cloud and OTT deployments,’ noted Harmonic’s vice president of sales, APAC, Tony Berthaud. ‘The VOS 360 cloud solution is the perfect fit for SuperSoccer, enabling the operator to enhance the quality of its live streaming service quickly, without making a large upfront investment that is traditionally required for hardware-based workflows. The VOS 360 service allows SuperSoccer to deliver exceptional video quality and support advanced features like live TV and catch-up TV for increased monetisation.’
