Maori Television Service Have a Happy VOD Service Now, as Supplied by Gencom

Gavin Ho, Systems Manager, said good things about Harmonic Inc.’s WFS (Work Flow System). Maori Television Service has deployed the range of products from Harmonic for the creation and publishing of its Video On Demand service. Viewers can now access via the channels website a backlog of programming titles for repeats of catchup viewing


The Harmonic WFS and Carbon workflow and transcoding products work together to provide a complex workflow of taking programming assets for the linear presentation broadcast facility and publish these up as downloadable VOD’s.


Some of the special requirements from Maori Television Service were to transcode and stitch together multi-segment programs, into single VOD entities suitable for a range of resolutions and devices, together with the all-important cross language subtitles. Maori Television Service’s Gavin Ho said, “together with the help of Gencom, we looked at most products on the market to find the one single suite of products from a single vendor that could address all of our needs, and Harmonic was really the only one that ticked all of the boxes for us.“ 


The WFS system has proven integration with Maori Television Service’s subtitling system out of the box. Ho also said, “the installation and integration with our Editing, Play-out and website system was very straightforward and has gone really well.  Soon also we hope to add the extra functionality of integration with our Grass Valley Stratus editing platform for publishing direct from news’.’
