Harmonic Inc. introduces the Electra 9000, a multicodec, multiformat video encoder for broadcast, satellite, telco and cable operators that simultaneously supports broadcast, mobile, and web formats in a 1-RU chassis.

The Electra 9000 is an integrated broadcast and multiscreen compression platform that provides a flexible, open, scalable architecture that integrates with existing broadcast infrastructure and enables new multiscreen services, while lowering capital and operating expenses, Harmonic says.

Multiscreen services have become a priority for operators as consumer expectation for affordable, convenient, high-quality video everywhere becomes the norm, the company says. A priority for Harmonic was to incorporate web and mobile support into the Electra platform without compromising quality or reducing the Electra’s broadcast feature set, and operatorscan benefit from a streamlined “headend” operation, with several critical functions for broadcast, mobile and web.
