Shop LC and The Jewelry Channel Elevate Online Shopping Experience with Harmonic

Harmonic have announced that Austin, Texas-based online auction shopping network Shop LC and its U.K.-based sister company, The Jewelry Channel (TJC), leaders in internet retailing of jewelry and lifestyle products, will use Harmonic solutions to power their OTT services. Using Harmonic's VOS®360 SaaS, Shop LC and TJC will be able to distribute live OTT content to any screen with exceptional quality of experience and low latency, as well as deliver on-demand content for web shoppers.

"Low latency is critical for live OTT. Having Harmonic as a video delivery partner gives us the confidence to provide an outstanding online shopping experience to our customers," said Vineet Vashisht, chief technology officer at VGL Group, Shop LC's and TJC's parent company. "Harmonic's VOS360 SaaS sets the benchmark for delivering high-quality, low-latency live video streams, and that is why we're also looking at replacing our on-prem playout system and creating pop-up channels with Harmonic in the near future."

Harmonic's VOS360 SaaS will give Shop LC and TJC the unique capability to stream CMAF DASH and low-latency HLS video. Using its time-shift feature, Shop LC and TJC can easily create high-quality VOD assets for use on their website, including videos and images related to retail products, thereby offering an enhanced shopping experience to customers.

Switch Media Unveils Cost-Effective Fast-to-Market OTT Platform MediaHQ Lite Posted: 16/10/2019
Switch Media Unveils Cost-Effective Fast-to-Market OTT Platform MediaHQ Lite

Switch Media, a world leader in online video technology, is announcing the launch of MediaHQ Lite. This is an end-to-end OTT platform that provides a comprehensive feature set at a cost-effective price point allowing an OTT service to be delivered swiftly. MediaHQ Lite keeps complexity to a minimum while satisfying core OTT requirements, reducing overheads and providing the opportunity to test new ideas with minimal budget.

Premium OTT services have become complex and fragmented. Many broadcasters and content owners struggle with bespoke integrations, finger pointing between vendors, the high costs of app development and progressively increased overhead costs. MediaHQ Lite is aimed at new OTT offerings where time-to-market is critical, and budgets are realistic. The platform provides the ability to extend reach, free up operational resources and adapt to the changing OTT landscape and consumer expectations.

Using MediaHQ Lite, an OTT service can be launched quickly and easily without any kind of customisation. Users simply rebrand according to their own brand guidelines. Features include secure VOD and live streaming with DRM, a global CDN service, analytics reports, comprehensive metadata, high definition ABR encoding and use of the Switch Media applications, or their own apps if they have them. What really sets MediaHQ Lite apart is a full featured server-side ad insertion integration with AdEase providing uncompromised addressable ad experiences.
