Harmonic announced that Mola TV uses Harmonic’s VOS360 cloud streaming SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) for the UHD (Ultra HD) HDR (High Dynamic Range) streaming of UEFA Euro 2020 football matches in Indonesia.

Mola TV is one of the fastest-growing entertainment networks in Indonesia. Harmonic’s VOS360 ensures the best service reliability and real time scaling for Mola TV’s streaming service. It simplifies the live streaming pattern from source to screen.

“We are enormously proud that, for the first time, our viewers can watch live, high-profile sports events in UHD HDR,” said CP Lee, CTO at Mola TV. “Mola TV has always relied on Harmonic cloud streaming solutions for its sports streaming services. As we bring more high-profile sports events such as the UEFA and EPL, Harmonic’s VOS360 SaaS will be instrumental in ensuring the best possible streaming experience for our subscribers.”

The new cloud streaming SaaS simplifies all stages of media processing and delivery chain. In contrast, EyeQ AI (artificial intelligence)-based encoding technology on the VOS360 platform enhances the streaming quality for Mola TV’s service. Due to the support provided by the DevOps team with 24/7 monitoring and assistance, the Harmonic cloud-based platform offers reliability and high availability, which is essential for streaming live sports.
