The Complete Guide to Software-Based Encoding with the Harmonic PURE Compression Engine™

To excel in today’s hyper-competitive media landscape, any company that distributes video content needs a compression solution that is flexible enough to support the growing number of formats, codecs and encoding schemes required by broadcast and multiscreen services, while simultaneously ensuring that video quality targets are consistently hit.

Adding the optional EyeQ™ technology to a PURE Compression deployment for over-the-top (OTT) distribution further elevates video quality while reducing bandwidth consumption up to 50%. These capabilities are delivered from a software-based foundation that is not limited by the constraints of custom hardware.
